About me

Though I was born in Spokane, Washington and presently reside in Clark County, Washington, I have spent a good portion of my life residing in the Portland-metropolitan area. As a result, one of my objectives as a lawyer has always been to represent people in both Oregon & Washington.


I enrolled at Gonzaga University School of Law in 1996. That summer following my first year at Gonzaga, I was elected as an associate editor for the Gonzaga Law Review. and was also hired as a legal intern for Columbia Legal Services. This is where my exposure and love for family law began. As a Rule 9 intern for Columbia Legal Services, I counseled and represented clients in the areas of divorce, custody, vidsitation, child / spousal support, and domestic violence. My article entitled, "Providing Equal Justice for the Domestic Violence Victim: Due Process and the Victim's Right to Counsel" would later be published in the Gonzaga Law Review. In 1999, I graduated from law school in the top 1/3 of my class and passed the Washington State Bar Exam. I subsequently passed the Oregon State Bar exam in 2004.


Following law school, I was an associate attorney for three years in a prominent, AV-rated law firm in Longview, Washington. There too my practice focused on family law. While practicing law in Longview, I was active in the legal community serving as a board member for the Cowlitz County CASA, Cowlitz-Wahkiakum County Legal Aid Program, and served as the vice president/president-elect for the Cowlitz-Wahkiakum County Bar Association.


I am an active family law practitioner in Clark County, Washington as well as Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Columbia County, Oregon. I have represented clients and appeared in court on behalf of clients in other counties in both states. Prior to establishing my own firm, I practiced law in Portland for four years and represented both Oregon and Washington clients in high-asset divorce cases and other family law matters while employed by a Portland family law firm.  In 2008, I co-founded Martin & Veley, P.C., with offices in downtown Portland, Oregon and Camas, Washington.  In addition to providing a full-service family law practice, our firm also practices in the areas of real estate and construction law, collections, contracts, and general and business civil litigation.
