Mr Demary has represented me regarding my legal matters for several years. A number of years ago he did an outstanding job negotiating the property settlement and divorce from my former spouse. Most recently Bob challenged the continuation of the $2k per month spousal support I have been paying for a number of years. I was seeking a reduction based on the fact that my ex-wife was cohabitating with a man and they had purchased a home together. When the case went to trial Mr Demary was very well prepared and argued the case successfully. Bottom line... The judge agreed with our position and totally eliminated any further payments to my ex-wife. I couldn't have expected a better outcome! Several of my friends recommended Bob as the best attorney in the Portland area for domestic relations issues. I have to agree with there assessment. Where Bob really "shines" is during his courtroom presentation... Highly recommended him to anyone seeking legal counsel in this area...

My experience with Demary is that he and the parent firm could not keep basic documents organized. Documents submitted as part of opposing party disclosure were later not to be found in his office. He was rarely prepared for our meetings. It felt as if he was always playing catch up during our meetings. He did not read materials I sent him to support my case. I felt he brought little insight to the case. Other than a lawyer in court being a requirement I can't come up with anything he brought to my case. And the results in court were very very poor for me.

Bob was awesome. I was in the middle of a very complicated divorce and custody battle, when I switched to Bob because things were not moving forward. . He got more done in two weeks than my other attorney did in six months. The final outcome was nearly $100.000 more in my favor than the recommended settlement my previous attorney was suggesting, and $1500 per month less alimony. I cannot be more pleased with his expertise and aggressiveness needed in my case! I definitely highly recommend Bob, for any divorce case, and especially where there is a lot of wealth at stake.

Bob handled my ugly divorce and child custody case with professionalism and grace. He is a bulldog and knows how to navigate bullies from the other side. He also brings humor and compassion to the table making the situation real and human. He treated me with respect and I never felt like I was just a "client." He was genuinely concerned about the best interest of me and my children. He is incredibly knowledgeable and sharp. I would highly recommend Bob in any situation where divorce is ugly and custody is a sticky situation.

Bob helped me navigate an extremely challenging divorce case with kindness and human compassion helping me keep my daughter's priorities in the forefront. I had hired an initial attorney that had gotten me into a very difficult position simply by the way that we had chosen to respond to my ex's attorney position. I was faced with what seemed as an insurmountable situation with one of the top attorney's in Portland (Stahancyk) on the opposing council and limitless funds on my ex's side. Bob gave clear advice as to what realistically could be achieved given the situation and helped me keep the heightened emotional aura of the situation in check. Divorce is an extremely painful time for everyone involved and I am grateful for having had Bob on my side. He used the art of compromise to achieve the best outcome possible while keeping with a core professional ethic of acting in the best interest of the child.

Bob was a excellent lawyer winning me the sole custody of my two boys. He was very friendly and took time answer questions and explained the process to me in words I could understand

Bob was excellent to work with during my unpleasant divorce proceedings. He was responsive to my questions and never acted put out to provide explanations. He knew my case well and reccomended different strategies based on risk. He has a great sense of humor which helped me keep things light in a highly emotional situation. Bob is clearly well known and has good working relationships with other lawyers and judges. His assistant Julie was quite helpful and had excellent follow-through. Everyone at Gevurtz Menashe was professional and kind.

Bob was referred to me by a friend of mine and highly recommended. Upon my first meeting with Bob I knew I was dealing with an attorney that was understanding, knowledgeable, and professional. At the same time he was compassionate and I realized he was going to help me through a very difficult time in my life. Bob did exactly that and I'm very thankful. He always answered/returned my calls. He has a sense of humor and is down to earth. I am more than satisfied with his representation. Thank you Bob!

I hired Bob on the recommendation of a family member of mine who had been previously represented by Bob. Bob was professional and down to earth in our dealings prior to court in person, by phone, and by email. He let me know what to expect through the process and gave an accurate projection of the likely court proceeding. Then, at our court appearance he changed. That was the day that I really met Bob. He became both intense and ruthless. There were a barrage of tough questions fired at my ex when Bob was questioning, and objections made when he wasn't. My ex's lawyer was both outmatched and outclassed. I am so glad Bob was on my side of the courtroom. The judge returned a judgment for parenting time that was what I had been hoping and praying for, and nowhere close to what my ex was asking. I can't begin to convey the gratitude that I feel for what Bob has done for my family. I would recommend him to anyone.

I had a highly contensious divorce, Bob was very honest about what to expect as things proceeded. He explained legal terms to me as one professional to another. I am so glad I had him by my side, literally and figuratively, during both days of trial. His court room tactics seemed to be a perfect mix of knowledge, skill and sense of humor. I can't thank you enough Bob.
