Long story short: After fiddling around with my own attorney and not getting anywhere I fired the guy (that's a long story). My wife had retained Attorney Feibleman for her counsel. Having not gotten the results I wanted from my attorney and finally being at a place where she and I could talk we arranged to work together with Gil, with the caveat that Gil was my wife's lawyer first and foremost. What an experience. It went so smoothly with Gil guiding us both to achieve a reasonable and fair settlement that his client was happy with and I could live with. I had not expected to encounter this. I found Gil to be a superb arbitrator, walking a fine line between making sure his client's interests were protected first but also showing me how an equitable agreement could be reached without crippling me. Frankly, I wish that I had agreed to have him be our arbitrator long ago. Even though we were on opposite sides of the table, so to speak, I respect him and appreciate the effort he made to help us meet in the middle. Well done, sir.
Mr. Feibleman was the only lawyer of four that was successful in my case and did so without having to go to court. Extremely knowledgeable, has an extensive network and infused a sense of realism when I wanted things that weren't realistic. He was fair, frank and communicative.
I have had many interactions with attorneys in my career. When I needed an attorney for a divorce Mr Feibleman was recommended by a business associate as, "the best attorney they had ever worked with". And you know they were right! For starters he listens to what you have to say. Very knowledgeable about the law. Experience and practicality also comes from an active career. He does not waste your time or money. He delivers. I needed his advice and services again years later. All of the above was still true. Mr Feibleman and his staff quickly got to work. The working relationship and support they provided were a godsend in navigating a difficult time for a successful solution and mediation with a difficult person.
I was asked early in my divorce process, "do you have a good lawyer?" My answer at the time was, "well, how do you know?" Then I talked with Mr. Feibleman and within a minute, that question came back into my head and I knew the answer to my own question. You know you have a good attorney when you can say with confidence that he is intimately knowledgeable of the law. He is calm and confident. He is patient enough with you to answer even the smallest of questions. He keeps you informed every step of the way. He makes you feel like you are his only client. He tells you the truth. He will fight for you. Mr. Feibleman has all of those qualities and more. He is an absolute professional who worked hard for me from the moment I hired him all the way through until the divorce was finally done. He refused to put up with the opposing attorney's delaying tactics and forced real settlement conversation between the two sides. He let me know when my expectations were too high and when they were too low, always explaining the legal reasons why. Not only is he unbelievably knowledgeable about divorce law, he also knows the laws as they pertain to military members (which is seemingly rare). He is the sole reason why my divorce ended as positively and as quickly as it did, and I only wish I had hired him sooner (and first).
Gil and his staff provided excellent service for me during my recent divorce proceedings. He is thorough and thus well prepared. When my ex-wife and I seperated and agreed to a division of property, I had thought the divorce was going to be a simple, civil separation until her attorney served me with papers demanding a large sum of money. Gil was able to reduce this to a minimal, fair amount and finalize the divorce for me without taking the case to court. I would certainly recommend him.
Mr. Feibleman was thoughtful and professional in the consultation that he gave me about my impending divorce. His advice was logical and I plan to follow it.
I have to mention that Mr Feibleman by far is the most professional and friendliest lawyer I have ever met. Mr Feibleman has performed his duties in an exemplary and rigirious way.
It is wonderful to be able to get prompt professional help at a critical stage in ones life. Nice and good attitude. I will heartly recommend him. Even though the mission has ended, he has checked with me and made sure that everything was in order. I hope people in Oregon take the opportunity to get help from Mr Fiebleman.
Gil is direct, realistic and watches the bottom line. Gil cares about his clients. He provides a team that works with him in the support of the client. I was comfortable in asking questions and was treated with respected and compassion. I was not just a client I was as person with fears and concerns of the unknown. Those fears and concerns were listened to and responded to appropriately. Gil kept me involved each step of the way. I was never blindsided and my opinion was valued. I was believed. Gil is a gentleman, a professional and a respected and brilliant attorney.
I have known and worked with Mr. Feibleman for over 20 years. I have great familiarity with Mr. Feibleman’s reputation and experience as a trial lawyer as I have referred many cases to Mr. Feibleman and have been co-counsel with Mr. Feibleman on several significant matters. His reputation and skill is excellent and he is a highly regarded domestic relations attorney. Mr. Feibleman has demonstrated to me and my clients a high degree of skill not only in domestic relations but even in areas largely new to him including defamation and slander; condemnation; access permits; DEQ proceedings; criminal indictments and search and seizure and personnel/employee lawsuits.
In my experience with working with attorneys, Mr. Feibleman has a singular, exceptional, almost intuitive and well-honed skill in analyzing testimony and analyzing witnesses’ likely testimony from a logical and factual basis that thoroughly demonstrates that he understands the underlying and critical issues of a case and what evidentiary points need to be addressed in preparing both for prosecuting and defending his cases.
He is extremely adept in this regard in dealing with domestic relations cases. He has a wealth of experience that he brings to all of his cases. He not only develops a theme, but is constantly evaluating and re-analyzing how witnesses will or will not develop or harm that theme or message.
His superior skills are self-evident and his doggedness and willingness to expend the time to achieve the result is grounded on the principal that the client deserves the best efforts of the representation he can bring and he takes seriously his ethical obligations to thoroughly review every aspect of a matter before committing himself to a position or strategy he adopts.
In every case I have been involved with, he has been professional, well prepared and “right” on the law. He has a reputation for being firm in seeking a fair result for his clients yet always willing to find a workable compromise.
Gil Feibleman has been our family lawyer for 32 years. He has saw our family through many trials and has always given us excellant advice and guidance. When Gil takes a case he gives it everything he has to give. Gil, truly is the best there is.
