Kathryn Bourn has well over 13 years’ experience helping people with family law issues including contested divorce, custody, support, and probate matters. She also has extensive experience representing abused and neglected children in foster care.
Kathryn joined Gresham Family & Bankruptcy Law in February 2016 focusing on family law issues. Kathryn enjoys the opportunity family law presents while helping her clients navigate through a challenging time in their lives. She is committed to helping people craft clear, workable agreements and being an advocate in court, if needed, to stand up for people’s rights when negotiating reasonable agreements is not possible.
Kathryn began her legal career by prosecuting domestic assaults in the Clatsop County District Attorney’s Office. Using her litigation experience, she opened her own family law and bankruptcy practice in Astoria for 11 years. In 2010, Kathryn helped found a nonprofit organization that provides volunteer advocates for foster children. She served as the executive director of Columbia County’s Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program until 2013. In 2013 she moved to Portland and joined Kivel & Howard, where she handled a broad range of legal matters, including family law, estate planning, and landlord-tenant issues.
As a native Oregonian, Kathryn enjoys the many outdoor activities our region offers, including snowshoeing, backpacking, and bicycling with her partner, Mitch.
