Attorneys Practicing Family Law, Bankruptcy & Estate Planning
When the time comes to deal with family law issues, personal bankruptcy, or probate and estate planning, you need a law firm that can serve you with compassion but fight tirelessly for a positive resolution. At GFBL, we take your case seriously and devote ourselves to achieving a successful outcome on your behalf.
Lillian Suelzle Watson, Kathryn Bourn, Erin O’Riley and Chamber Dorheim use a client-focused open communication style to represent individuals and families in the suburbs and small towns outside of Portland. Our office is easily accessible, and you won’t have to navigate the traffic of downtown Portland to get to us.
What We Do
At GFBL, we offer legal services related to divorce, child custody, parenting time, mediation, Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, and estate planning and probate cases. In some circumstances, solutions can be achieved through careful negotiation and settlement conferences outside the courtroom. When needed, we are willing and able to aggressively pursue an outcome in court.
Our goal is to provide effective representation for our clients through careful intelligent planning and diligent hard work without compromising our strong sense of ethics, community, and family values.
