Char Quade and her team have helped our family numerous times over the past decade, from helping me with advocating for my children with special needs, to dealing with estate planning and advocacy for my elderly mother and sister. – They have always been immediately available, kind, compassionate, extremely proactive and very affordable.  I can not say enough about their willingness to constantly and consistently go above and beyond the call.  For anyone in need of advocacy or legal counsel, especially regarding children and adults with special needs – there is simply no one better or more caring that Char Quade and her stellar team.  Additionally, I coach parents and care givers of children with special needs and do workshops and classes throughout the community on a regular basis.  I have been honored to share the podium several times with Char.  She gives of her tirelessly of her time and expertise to help those in need, and always brings a wealth of information and effective strategies for successful advocacy. I highly recommend  C K Quade Law.

We came to Ms. Quade for legal matters and preparation and had an excellent experience. Not only was she and her staff friendly but they embraced our girls and were so nice.  She met all our legal needs and was so very professional and expedient in preparing our paperwork.  She guided us with preparing our girls future and our Estate needs.  I would highly recommend Char Quade Law.  Very Professional and Knowledgeable.

Tilda H.

When it was time for my husband and I to tackle guardianship and special needs trust development for our daughter with Autism and Down syndrome we had no idea where to start. Char and her legal team were very  professional in helping us understand the complexities of this legal process.  Our questions were answered clearly and our filing was done in a timely way with no problems whatsoever. We would highly recommend CK Quade Law!

I met Char years ago while she was giving a presentation to PROP (Parents Reaching Out to Parents) in Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho. I was new to the group and new to raising a child with special needs! Char was so informative and dedicated in her ability to enlighten me on legal issues that I would need to consider. We now had a child that would require care for life!

Char and her team at C.K. Quade Law walked us through the process of wills, estate planning and what would work best for us. Our questions were always answered so that we understood the process. Through the years, we have had several occasions to ask for her assistance and she has always been terrific in responding immediately! Char is an intelligent, compassionate, kind, caring, and extremely hard working advocate for those of us with “special needs’ loved ones. Proud, after all these years of knowing her, to call her our friend as well! Thanks for all you do, Char!!
