I retained Kaori and her firm from another state where my case was filed in Oregon. Boy, am I pleased with the decision of hiring them! Not only they offered me a very good legal strategy, the team's customer service was also great - they were quick to respond, including communication after hours; their information was thorough and thoughtful. Not only were they professional, the team members were also very caring during this difficult time in my life. Without Kaori's service, my life would be must messier and more stressful. I would hire her team again a heart beat!

An amazing lawyer!! She surpassed all of my expectations. Very knowledgable and smart. Helped me get a restraining order for an abusive and manipulative ex boyfriend who I thought was going to just trample me in court. She made me feel very comfortable and was understanding. During court, she was very confident in what she was doing and I felt safe with her. I am so happy I got her as my lawyer. Would recommend her to anyone!!!

Kaori was very helpful toward bringing an end to my case. Ex is a high conflict personality that often rubbed me the wrong way. Any time I acted on any impulse that wasn't in my best interest, Kaori let me know and offered suggestions for alternatives. Divorce / custody issues are hardly un-emotional, but it's good to have someone in your corner who calls it as she sees it. Our case didn't go in front of a judge, but was pretty confident if it had. It's really good to get an accurate appraisal of the situation from a calm and knowledgeable professional.

I retained Kaori to gain sole legal and physical custody of my 2 year old son. I was in the midst of managing a new independent consultant business, relocating out-of-state to be closer to my family, being a single parent and fighting a ridiculous custody battle with an erratic, irrational and deadbeat ex. Kaori "got it" right away and focused on what was most important (the safety of me and my child) and took care of business. She knows how to navigate the system, stay focused on a strategy, support me emotionally...and win. With her expertise, I have custody of my son, and the judge also awarded me almost 75% of her attorney fees from the opposing. I am forever grateful for her availability and responsiveness, no-nonsense approach, focus and calm demeanor. She and her team got me through the most difficult year of my life. Without hesitation, I recommend her as highly as I can with words.

During a mortgage transaction I had a client whose “do-it-yourself divorce” omitted an essential component of the property and debt allocation. Being familiar with Mr. Margolin and Ms. Tanabe through previous transactions, I referred my client to them. In the realm of family/real estate law, this was a very minor case—one that many attorneys would have not taken. Understanding the importance of the issue to my client and his ability to purchase a home already under contract, Dan and Kaori not only took on the job, but gave it a high priority and completed the legal matter in record time, allowing my client to successfully purchase a home. I would highly recommend both Mr. Margolin and Ms. Tanabe—they not only have a thorough and professional approach, but more importantly, a deep consideration for what is most important to their clients.

Kaori helped me through what should have been an amicable divorce, which turned unpleasant because of the ex's attorney. Kaori had a clear strategy, knew what family law and the Multnomah County courts were likely to do, and kept me from climbing the walls while things dragged out. She preserved my financial future too; I think she got me a good settlement, I still have joint custody of my kids, and she was instrumental in keeping the case out of court (not for lack of trying on the ex's attorney's part). Kaori is capable, clever, and efficient.

Kaori Tanabe is a consumate professional. I was going through a potentially complicated divorce, and Kaori was able to help me negotiate a settlement that I was very pleased with. She was very responsive, and was always able to respond to my questions or concerns. As well, she did an excellent job presenting the benefits and risks of various strategies, enabling me to make an informed decision about my own case. To me, this is the sign of a excellent attorney!

When I first met Kaori I was extremely upset at my situation, I had a hard time dealing with everything. I even found myself emptying boxes of her Kleenex.
Well, she said the right things to motivate me, keep me up in this, and after everything has been finished......I can not believe what she has done for me! My friends and I are amazed at what she knew to fight for me when my thoughts were masked by my emotions.....moreover she is an honest to god good person.
Anyone would be lucky to have her as a representative.

I can't say enough about professional, knowledgable, and efficient Kaori was during the whole process. I strongly recommend her to anyone.
