"Everyone is subject to the same laws, but there are many things that can be done to maximize client results. I identify client objectives early in a case, and lay out a roadmap with the client towards the desired goal. Our clients expect and deserve excellence, and I am tuned in to my clients' expectations regarding both professional representation and personal attention from day one. From the moment I first meet with a client, the whole firm is there to accomplish their goals. Period."
Mr. Stephens enjoys time in the outdoors, Krav Maga, yoga, and time with his family. He also enjoys writing for the Oregon Divorce Blog and the Oregon Collaborative Law blog, which are free information service on divorce, family law, and collaborative law.
