Sean was greatly helpful in guiding me through the process of my divorce. He helped me understand the legal landscape in family law and advocated for me with with the opposing attorney and the judge. The judgement I received was fair, and I believe that Sean's experience helped diffuse some of the conflict that that threatened to draw out the case and make it more difficult and expensive for both parties. On top of that, he is highly personable and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking guidance through the challenges of dissolving a marriage.

We hired Mr. Stephens for an unusual third party custody case concerning a teenager. Sean and his professional team were great about communicating with us in a timely manner, and were highly competent in both preparing for multiple scenarios and handling an extremely volatile and unpredictable defendant.
I would also add that Sean did a great job of talking directly to our teenager about the legal issues and making him feel like his issues and opinions were heard.
In the end, Sean got us exactly what we needed to protect the child at the center of the case. I recommend Sean Stephens enthusiastically.

When I filed for divorce I met with Sean and he went over the divorce process with me and explained the cost estimates along with the timelines. He was thorough with my information and made sure the process went as planned. His charges can the time it took to get divorced was much less than projected. He is a very competent attorney and truly cares about the best interest of his clients. He has a very good office assistant staff and was very accessible when I had questions. I highly recommend Sean for anyone considering a divorce.

I have known Mr. Stephens as a friend and fellow colleague for many years. Through hard work and excellent lawyering, Mr. Stephens has developed one of the most highly respected family law firms in Portland. His vast knowledge of family law and significant litigation experience serve his clients very well. If I have family law questions, Sean is first on my list for advice. I strongly endorse this lawyer.
