I held off on writing this review to be sure of doing it justice. She was so good for me I wanted to do the same back for her. An attorney friend gave me 3 references to handle my divorce. After interviewing all 3 I chose Lilian and could not have been more satisfied. My friend later told me that Lilian would have been his choice as well were he in the same position. She was excellent in getting me through a very difficult time, handled my case with professionalism and--most importantly--caring, even recommending a course of action that reduced her fees. She was excellent about follow up, including a few years later when financial issues were completed to insure that the satisfaction of judgement was filed. Perhaps the best praise of all--despite an at times contentious process, at the conclusion my ex recommended Lilian to a friend!
Lilian Bier is the most thorough and professional attorney I have ever worked with. She works extremely hard at finding all the facts in your case to bring before the court. Her staff is just as professional and concerned for you as Lilian is. She and her staff also seem to keep you calm when you think the world has fallen in on you. She treats you with compassion and empathy and I can imagine what a true friend she would be. Steve W.
Excellent and above board in every regard. Conscientious , caring and effective handling of my divorce and subsequent issues that have arisen since. Communication with Ms. Bier is prompt and her office staff also is highly rated. Hire Ms. Bier and she will not disappoint.
Lilian Bier is a very professional and knowledgeable attorney. Her tenacious approach to obtaining thorough records and financial information is excellent. I hired Lilian in 2000 to modify my divorce settlement as I needed more money for health insurance. She got what I needed and was a tremendous support. I hired her again in 2013 when my ex wanted to terminate or reduce the lifetime alimony he had to pay. Lilian had to fight to get the true financial records and did a masterful job in court. I kept my alimony and he had the ex pay all my costs. Lilian’s staff were wonderful, and I had no problems with communication, either by telephone or email. Above all, Lilian made me feel validated. Yes, she points out all the worst case scenarios, but she fights hard for what is right. I love her sense of humor and feel like she would be a fabulous friend. I would recommend her most highly to anyone who needs an attorney, and have done so on several occasions. She is tiny, but mighty! I did read one negative review of her on this site, and think it must be someone who is possibly a competitor. ?
I haved referred 3 people to Lilian, all have been very pleased. I used Lilian for my divorce and she was great, helpful and supportive. Like said before she is tiny but mighty. I used 1 person that she recommended and he was great, turned out he knew my uncle. Small world. What I really liked is how well we could communicate, and she didn't talk over my head.
Don't waste your time or money. Had to terminate Mrs Bier just before a scheduled mediation as she was not only uncommunicative with me (ignored emails) she only returned my calls after I phoned and complained to her office staff. Disorganized, poor time management & she constantly pushes her appraisal agenda (don't agree to use her people)! She was actually recommended to me- what a dissappointment !!
From our first meeting Lilian was realistically supportive and knowledgeable about family law as well as general Oregon law. I really appreciated her straight talk and approach. :)
Lilian is a wonderful attorney who helped me to get money for health care from my ex. She is professional, but still a warm and caring person. She has a great sense of humor (important to me) and is very knowledgable. I can't recommend her highly enough!
