    • I do not recommend William Valent.
    • I hired William 6-12 months ago.
    • William handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    Mr. Valent represented me in a lengthy and complicated divorce. At the end of journey, I was billed $50,000 in representation fees for a settlement in which I received no spousal support, I was awarded a car with a balance that I refinanced with the help of my parents and a house with a mortgage.

    My biggest complaint with Mr. Valent is that he was combative with me, he would call without reviewing my case notes first. His billing practices made it impossible to keep track of his efforts (I didn't receive a bill from him until 4 months after hiring him, by that time he had ran through $15,000).

    He has been paid about $15,000, I don't have a job, and now he has threatened a lien on my home.

    If you are getting a divorce in the State of Oregon, find someone else.

    • I recommend William Valent.
    • I hired William more than 3 years ago.
    • William handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Bill was great with me while I went through my divorce. He certainly knows the in's and out's of the legal system, and was able to 'tell it to me straight' which I appreciated. I never really felt like a dollar sign to him, but always as a valuable client, which can be rare in the lawyer world!
    I recommend Bill highly.
