Let Me Help

Helping People Resolve Family Disputes

If you are going through a family legal dispute or personal bankruptcy, chances are that stress is at an all-time high. At my Bellevue law practice, I — William Buchanan — have been helping people throughout Washington resolve their families’ disputes, create working family dynamics and eliminate debt for more than 30 years.


Including Clients In The Process

It is your life — you should be involved in the decision-making process.

Legal decisions regarding family and finances have the power to greatly alter our lives. That is why I take the time to educate my clients about their current legal circumstances.

I begin each client consultation by delving into the facts, learning all I can about my client’s familial and financial circumstances, his or her family’s dynamics and the dispute that is causing disagreement among family members. We also discuss my client’s goals for resolution.

As a lawyer, I know that decisions made today have the power to impact lives for years to come. In that vein, I make sure my clients understand that choices today regarding child custody, visitation or bankruptcy will have lifelong effects on parent-child relationships and financial security.

Once I have thoroughly explained how the law applies to my client’s specific situation, we review all dispute resolution methods available. Together, we select a route that not only best achieves today’s goal, but sets my client on the path to achieving long-term success.


Providing Family Law Support Throughout Washington

I have been a practicing attorney for more than 30 years. In that time, I have helped hundreds of clients navigate the divorce process, divide assets and separate in a way that allows both parties to move forward with their lives.

I also help my clients develop parenting plans that resolve child custody and visitation disputes effectively and with as little aggravation as possible, thus maintaining working parenting relationships.

Life is constantly evolving and changing. Legal documents that worked yesterday may not fit into today’s life. I help parents modify parenting plans and child support orders when life changes — such as parental relocation — require a change to custody and visitation schedules.
