Why I do this work?  The one constant in family law is that each family is different.

My practice:  My primary goal has always been to help my clients get through a difficult time in their lives with the least amount of wasted time, emotional pain and unnecessary expense. I no longer do contested hearings, trials or last-minute settlements because my clients’ goals were not being achieved. I am convinced the “better way” is Collaborative Divorce (and its little sibling, Mediation)!

Background: I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, graduating from Portland State University and Lewis and Clark – Northwestern School of Law. Rain doesn’t bother me (too much) and I still think the only “pro” sports team in town is the Trail Blazers! [congrats, Thorns: NWSL 2017 champions; and Timbers: MLS 2015 champions and 2018 runner-ups]. I opened my law office in 1978 and have been in solo practice ever since. Over the years, my family practice has grown by word-of-mouth and referrals from colleagues and satisfied clients.

After Hours: I am transitioning to life on the road with my Escape travel trailer. For several years, my leisure time was spent aboard my 80’s-era racing sailboat on the mighty Columbia River. At this point, my three young granddaughters also demand their share of “Grandpa Randy’s” time. When my sons were young, I was a Scoutmaster for nearly 20 years (and a good ol’ Eagle, too!). I was also a soccer referee (US Soccer, adult, youth and high school [NFHS]), plus a USSF referee instructor for about as long.
