Just over a year ago I was faced with the unimaginable; a lifelong partner that had just come to the decision that she wanted to change the future trajectory of her life and in doing so impacted my life trajectory as well.
While reticent at first to formally start the legal ball rolling, my dad told me a number of times, “never bring a knife to a gun fight.” With that in mind I reached out to several Partners at legal practices in the Portland Area of which I had a corporate relationship. The question was simple, “who is the best law firm in Oregon to represent me in a divorce preceding?” The name Gevurtz Menashe came up again and again.
I contacted Gevurtz Menashe and after a few quick questions the staff at their office was able to match me up with the appropriate representative of their law firm. I went to the meeting to listen, learn and interview Dylan Cernitz . . . I left a client. Whether you are playing offensive or defense it’s all about putting a strong game plan together and executing that plan effectively.
Dylan’s leadership and legal counsel made a difficult situation manageable. While we initially started on defense, Dylan quickly switched us to playing offense and we never looked back.
In a high stakes, high tension environment, don’t misinterpret Dylan’s low key approach to addressing the matter at hand. When it gets down to making the hard decisions and emotions are running high, you’ll be glad to see Dylan unshaken by events and still focused on the task at hand . . . getting his client the best deal possible.
Dylan is particularly well suited to address “situations” which involve a complex and/or lengthy list of financial assets and even difficult business valuations. At some point in the process it all comes down to getting your list of assets laid out in a spreadsheet and totaled up for subsequent division.
Based upon my experience, I would recommend you take the time to meet with Dylan Cernitz and the Gevurtz Menashe team. It will be time well spent.

Dylan helped me with my recent divorce with ease. He walked me through the process and kept me informed of all my options. It is never easy, but knowing I was in great hands, put my mind to rest.

I had the pleasure of working with Dylan Cernitz on my recent divorce. When I first came to Dylan, I was totally distraught and terrified of what was to come. From day one, Dylan guided me through the entire divorce process. He is extremely ethical, honest and helped set realistic expectations. He ALWAYS got right back to me with answers to my questions and presented well thought out options. During mediation, Dylan had my back 150%, advocating for me every step of the way. I walked away feeling that I got a very fair settlement. I would highly recommend working with Dylan for his expertise, great bedside manner, honesty, and for getting the best possible outcome.
