Our Method

With over 33 years of experience as Portland's divorce lawyers, we have counseled both men and women in divorce or separation matters. The Portland divorce lawyers here at Opton & Galton have developed a sensitivity for the special needs of our clients:

  • We listen. Our Portland divorce lawyers understand that when divorce or separation is being considered many questions arise that need answers.
  • We get to the point. We do not waste time during our initial interview with unnecessary forms and information.
  • We answer your questions with direct and clear information to help you understand your legal position and possible courses of action.
  • We do not pressure potential clients to decide to proceed with a divorce or to hire us. These matters will come if and when the client feels they are right.
  • We are accessible.

From the outset of any divorce case, our Portland divorce lawyers identify and resolve the issues in the most effective way for the client. We seek to do so with as little disruption as possible to the lives of those involved, especially children.

In marriages with children, our view is that the children must be protected from the disputes arising out of divorce. Divorce has the potential to cause lasting trauma to children. We recognize this, which is why our Portland divorce lawyers advise our clients that protecting their children should be their first priority.

We encourage settlement, but not at the expense of our client's best interest. When necessary, our Portland divorce lawyers are always ready to go to trial to protect our clients and to help them obtain what they are entitled to under the law.

When To Contact Us

The broad range of our firm’s legal practice, in business and real estate especially, makes us knowledgeable in areas of law that often affect divorce. Divorce among parties with significant assets requires a working knowledge of business law, issues and solutions in order to advise clients on how best to plan for the future and resolve asset related issues.
