Review Patricia McGuire

About Me

I've been practicing law since 1996.  I was formerly a civil litigation partner in a large Portland law firm, and now I have my own family law firm, McGuire Thompson LLC.  I know that family law issues can be difficutl; I like to help clients navigate their way through tough times as quickly and efficiently as possible.  It's important to me to help my clients move on to enjoy the next phase in their lives.

  • Patricia Arjun

    I truly admire and respect Pat's approach to handing cases. She is a strong advocate who gets the job done for her client while maintaining good relations with her opposing counsel. That translates into happy clients and good outcomes for families.

  • Jonathan M Berman

    I have worked with Pat as opposing counsel on two matters; in both instances, Pat provided zealous representation of her client, but remained exceedingly courteous, and professional throughout. Pat is a worthy adversary; I look forward to working with her again in the future.
