My primary office is in Beaverton, just off Sunset Highway at Bethany; Appointments at satellite offices throughout Greater Portland or SW Washington are available upon request
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, graduating from Portland State University and Lewis and Clark – Northwestern School of Law. Rain doesn’t bother me and I still think the only “pro” sports team in town is the Blazers! [congrats, Timbers: MLS 2015 champions]. 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: Most of my leisure time at present is spent aboard my 80’s-era racing sailboat on the mighty Columbia (we call it “The Ditch”), but my two young granddaughters demand their share of “Grandpa Randy’s” time, too. 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 (USSF, adult, youth and NFHS high school) and a USSF referee instructor for about as long.
