Oran guided us through a very difficult process with both sensistivety and professionalism, He was always available when I had questions. He wrote up a very clear mediation report for the court. I highly recommend him
Oran did an excellent job in helping us mediate hat must always be a difficult and sensitive situation.
His patience and knowledge were extremely helpful to us. I would recommend him unhesitatingly.
Oran is a hardworking, trustworthy, extremely caring person who we feel fortunate to get to be our son's lawyer for his divorce. We're from Montana and our son has has a brain bleed and all the work was done over the phone and from afar. Oran worked hard and kept us informed every step of the way. We would highly recommend Oran to anyone who needs a lawyer, you won't find a harder more knowledgeable worker in our eyes.
Oran Kaufman is helping me get through a very difficult and emotional divorce.
He not only knows his stuff, but is a clear communicator and a great listener who keeps me aware of everything he does.
He gives options for me to think about, and we work together on how to proceed. From day 1 I knew he had my back. He is soft spoken and gets his point across to the other lawyer with respect and firmness. Not an easy thing to pull off. I see Oran as having the people skills of a good therapist, and the teaching skill of a law school professer. Because of his diligence and hard work , I will be ending this process with a fair settlement, and much more knowledge about Finances.
What makes Oran extra special is he is also a compassionate and down to earth person I feel comfortable confiding in him and super lucky that I found him to represent me in my divorce.
I can't recommend him enough.
Oran provided excellent legal service, compassion, understanding and guidance. He is thoughtful and clear thinking. He is a mediator at heart and quickly identifies common ground and a reasonable resolution while remaining a strong advocate for his client. If you're looking for a 'shark' and a 'fight' you should look elsewhere. I recommend Oran without reservation.
Oran is a very warm, intelligent and intuitive mediator. This kind of experience is never pleasant, but he made it comfortable and easy to get through. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who is going through a similar experience. I felt like I understood the parameters of what was happening every step of the way, and felt totally prepared for the last meeting before the judge.
If you need good, sound legal counsel, Oran is the attorney for you. His mediation skills are excellent and he will work you and the other parties involved to create a solution.
He navigated me through a very stressful child custody case. His advice on how the process worked and likely actions of the other parties and responses from the Court was spot-on. I do not think I would have kept my sanity during the worst year of my life without the calm guidance of this man. Oran has my greatest respect for how he helped me with my legal needs.
We went to Oran for a mostly amicable divorce and we both went away liking him very much. He made us both feel comfortable and respected and helped us to settle any disputes quickly and professionally. He was warm and friendly without being too chatty (which I really appreciated since it kept our cost down!) He was patient when we needed time to get our financials in, informative about the court process, and obviously knew his way around the system. I have recommended him to a few couples and I will continue to do so. Thank you Oran!
When my soon to be "X" and I visited the courthouse to set our court date, the clerk asked us who was our mediator. We replied Oran Kaufman and she blurted out “Oh, he is excellent”. As she flipped through the paperwork Oran had prepped for us to fill out, she just nodded and nodded.
Our Judge was smiling and friendly (that I truly did not expect) and Oran had given us very specific instructions on how to present ourselves appropriately. Bottom line, the actual divorce proceedings were very easy and anti-climactic.
Negotiating a divorce sucks. No way around it. But Oran is adept at finding the middle ground and keeping the conversation alive even when one or both parties freak out. I think he was a Guru in a past life. I couldn’t recommend him more highly.
My ex and I really had a simple separation, we were civil at the time so it was very cut and dry – even still, Oran walked us through the entire process step by step and made sure we were both fully aware of all of our legal options. I truly believe even if we had a situation that was more complex he would have just as great about it. Thanks to him, the process was quick and within 24 hours of submitting our paperwork to the court, we had a court date.
