Christopher J Eggert

About me

I have been an attorney providing strong and compassionate representation to my clients for over 19 years. I am licensed in Oregon, Washington, Utah and Hawaii, so chances are that if you need an attorney out west, I can help.


My primary practice areas are Divorce/Family Law, Criminal Defense, DUII and Chapter 7 Bankruptcy.


Although I am a former Deputy DA, most of my experience has been in private practice. I served on the Oregon Child Support Guidelines Review Committee in 2011-2012, chaired the Oregon State Bar Family Law Section 2013 Annual Conference, continue to serve on the Oregon State Bar Family Law Section Executive Committee, and have served on the Oregon State Bar Client Security Fund.


I am married with three children, am an active member in my parish, and am a licensed private pilot.
