About me

In 1982, Albert and his partner created Oregon’s first firm with a practice limited to family law.  Today, he leads a team of attorneys with over 300 years combined experience.


Albert is a leader in his field.  For the past 20 years, he has been chosen by his peers to be involved in nearly every organization of importance that oversees and defines how family law is practiced.


There are few attorneys in the country who have risen to Albert’s level in this specialty.  That is why he is often called first when tough family law issues arise.
