Firm Update from the Managing Shareholder

Firm Update from the Managing Shareholder


Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It’s been an exciting summer for our firm! Six months ago we settled into our new Portland office space in Old Town, as well as a new location in downtown Vancouver. At both offices, we continue to collaborate as a team and deliver positive results for our clients. After a few celebratory open houses and a little time to settle in, we have experienced exceptional growth these past months and are quickly filling our space with new attorneys and staff.

In July, we welcomed back Marshal Spector as Of Counsel. Marshal began his Oregon legal career with the firm in 1990 and brings 23 years of experience in Oregon family law cases. We’re very pleased to have him back. We also greeted Lewis and Clark undergraduate, Haley Flora as our new summer intern.

In August, as an added benefit to our clients, we welcomed new Shareholder, Steven Zipper and Of Counsel, John Christianson to represent our new estate planning, probate and trust administration practice. It is our intention to provide estate planning services to our current clients or those who do not already have estate planning representation.

We rounded out September with the addition of two new family law Associates: Catherine Barker and upon admittance to the Oregon State Bar, C.J. Graves. Catherine is an Oregon native, recently relocated from Kansas and C.J. is a new graduate from Lewis & Clark Law School. We’re thrilled to welcome them to our team!

It’s been a pleasure working with you and your clients this year, and we look forward to a wonderful fall season. Please give us a call or stop by our new office in Old Town anytime!

Sincerely,
Shawn Menashe, Managing Shareholder
