About me

Brenna is no stranger to adjusting to a new environment.  Upon graduation from law school in 1999, Brenna moved from Arizona to Oregon without having any connections or family in Oregon.  She now calls Portland her home and lives in Portland Heights.


Brenna took her time upon graduating from law school to find the perfect area of practice for her.  She
started her career in a general practice firm, where she gained trial
skills dealing with family law, criminal law, personal injury and
complex civil litigation.  After a year of being in the trenches, Brenna decided to dedicate her practice toward families.  She practiced juvenile law, including dependency, delinquency and termination of parental rights for over three years.  Through this experience, Brenna learned compassion for people in crisis and zealous advocacy in the court room.



Through Brenna’s journey of self discovery, she has dedicated her practice to family law exclusively since 2004.  She is effective with clients grieving the loss of a marriage.  She understands the need for emotional advocacy, as well as legal advocacy.  She
believes this holistic approach to family law is more beneficial to
clients and strives for clients to use this time of adjustment as a
time to grow and learn.
