About Me

Born and raised in Montana, and educated in Boston, I returned to the Northwest to attend the Northwestern School of Law at Lewis and Clark College and to practice law. I am an avid outdoors person, and in addition to a daily swim at noon, I love hiking, backpacking and horseback riding. When I’m not working, I garden, paint (watercolors and oils), can and freeze produce, entertain company, knit and make needlepoint pillows. Sometimes I play piano. I have two teenage daughters, a husband who is also in law, and four dogs. I think I can say that I understand the stresses and complexities of raising a family in today’s difficult social climate.


I have been an attorney since 1986, and engaged in family law almost exclusively since 1990.  In 2007, I opened my own firm, Bier Family Law. At Bier Family Law, clients are not passed on to an associate, as with bigger firms, but seen directly by me.   


I love my job. Family law allows me to exercise diametrically opposed skills: I counsel and hand-hold people through perhaps the roughest emotional time of their lives while actively safe-guarding their current and future interests.  As a client advocate I also play the role of appropriately aggressive negotiator both in and out of court.  Whether protecting my clients' custody rights and parenting time or advocating for a fair agreement in issues of support or the division of assets, I do everything within my power to do what’s right by my clients.


I welcome all inquiries for an initial consultation, which allows prospective clients to decide whether the match is a good one before retaining me.  During the consult, I hear details of the case, and provide a legal overview as well as a projected estimate of the cost. There are often both tears and laughter at this meeting. Getting started is the hardest part, but picking up a phone is relatively easy. If you need sensitive and effective legal advice or help in a family matter, call 503.595.4141 and make an appointment to see me.
