Office & Staff
My office is located in the historic Willamette business district of West Linn. The neighborhood is picturesque and friendly; My parking lot behind my office provides free and convenient off-street parking. It is right off I-205 at the 10th St exit.
It is equally convenient to the east, west and south sides of Portland–making it convenient for me to serve clients throughout the tri-county area.
Since 1994, Jon French, my husband since 1983, has worked with me as my legal assistant and office/business manager. Jon’s agreeable nature, his diligence, and his attention to detail, makes him an important part of my practice. When you first call my office, Jon will help determine whether your situation is one I can assist you with, and he can schedule an appointment for you. Throughout my representation of you, you can expect to have frequent contact with Jon as well as with me. Because his hourly billing rate is less than mine, I can keep your fees down by having him help with the non-attorney work that your case may require. Our close relationship means that your communications with my office don’t slip through the cracks.
We have a small, friendly, mixed-breed terrier, Millie, who comes to the office with us in the morning and leaves with us at night. She has comforted many a stressed client, warmed more than one hostile opposing party, and protects us from marauding neighborhood squirrels. Although I don’t let her intrude (you probably won’t see her unless you ask), she is our great friend and earns her keep.
