I had the pleasure of working with Ken through my divorce, his knowledge and preparation resulted in a positive outcome. He is very responsive, compassionate, and very easy to work with. His calm and friendly demeanor helped me through a couple of emotional discussions, which I truly appreciated. I have no reservations of highly recommending Ken McNeil.

When you're computer gets a virus and it needs to be repaired, you pay the price to have it fixed by a certified technician. You're technician repairs you're broken computer and gives it back loaded with new software and all new updates. An outstanding technician minimizes future risks by performing updates and being one step ahead of the rapidly changing PC market that is ever so flooded with malware and viruses.
Ken was my technician.
I paid to have a problem resolved. He explained ideas and kept me informed though I had a tough schedule. He helped ensure future problems don't re-occur.
If one day I will need an attorney to help me with an issue, Ken would be the person I would turn to first. Plus, he's an Oregonian!

Ken represented me in my recent divorce. He was the second attorney I met with at the beginning of the process, and I felt much more confident with Ken than the first attorney with whom I consulted.
He kept me informed, answered all of my questions and responded quickly to my e-mails and phone calls. I had specific goals for the settlement, and Ken helped me to achieve them. His knowledge and experience were invaluable to me.
I have never had a legal issue to deal with, so this was completely new to me. But, I was prepared every step of the way because of Ken's guidance. I can confidently recommend him. And, his assistant is fantastic!

Mr. McNeil handled an unpleasant case for me. I have used 2 lawyers previous to Mr. McNeil and he is, without question, the finest I have met. Specifically, he gave me a very fair, thorough initial consultation, and charged a very reasonable retainer. Throughout the ordeal, I felt like he gave me sound advice based on the law, and never told me just what I wanted hear. I'm sure I wasn't the biggest case he was working on; however, I always felt he gave my case his full effort and attention. Mr. McNeil's billing is very detailed. I never felt I was getting billed for anything extraneous (not the case with previous lawyers I've used). The case was resolved in a satisfactory manner; I feel this was a direct result of Mr. McNeil's sound advice and hard work. I would recommend him, without hesitation, if in need of an attorney.

Mr. McNeil was very helpful and informative throughout the process. At times I felt he maybe could have been a little more aggressive, but I deferred to his judgement on which tactics would yield the best results and I ended up with a very favorable judgement.

Mr. McNeil was obtained as my divorce attorney in 2007. From the beginning, he was supportive of my action plan to try for reconcilliation and did not pressure me in any way to move faster than what I did. When it came time to file for divorce, Mr. McNeil was thoughtful, supportive and processed the paperwork with intent. There were times when he offered advice and it was appreciated and showed his understanding of my situation. I would not hesitate to use Mr. McNeil for other legal issues.

Very articulate,knowledgeable Lawyer. Didnt miss a beat. I felt very confident having Mr. Mcneil represent me. He always seemed to be one step ahead of everyone else, which made everything alot easier on me. I will definately use his services in the future if needed. He is by no doubt in my mind a "Dream Team Lawyer".

Ken McNeil handled my divorce case for me. I feel Mr. McNeil handled my case in a professional, respectful & confident manner. When I first met Mr. McNeil I had a lot of questions and concerns. He was very efficient & knowledgeable in answering my questions and reassuring to me and I really appreciated that. I believe Mr. McNeil handled my case like it was as important to him as it was to me. I always knew what was going on and what to expect. I would strongly recommend that others use Mr. McNeil & his office if they need an attorney for a divorce.

I have worked with Ken on various items not only for me but for others I care about in my life. I went to him on everything possible due to the fact that I implicently trust his judgement and advice. He has always been upfront and honest about the outcomes of situations and given me accurate information. I appreciate him giving me information upfront and is always willing to answer any additional questions. He always takes the time to call people back in a timely manner and is more than respectful of people's needs. In a nut shull he is the only lawyer I would ever use and his knowledge truly is that of 3 lawyers. He does everything he can to help people. I have recommended him to a few friends who were in need of guidance. If you want someont to produce results and help you in whatever area Ken is the way to go.

Ken not only did what he said he would for me, but he was also correct in what how he thought things would progress. When a wrinkle developed from my ex-wife, Ken also predicted what would happen and it did. He always remained calm and reassuring.
