Peter handled my very contentious divorce - contentious because opposing counsel was dead-set on creating as much havoc as possible. Peter gave me great advice that was beyond just legal advice, it was life advice. He lifted me out of the alligator swamp and got me through it quickly. Afterward, everything that he said would happen regarding my ex- was spot on and I ended up spending less and getting a better settlement over time, including full custody of my kids - I and I'm the FATHER, who typically gets the bad end of the custody deal!

I engaged Mr. Bunch after a protracted and failed attempt by my former spouse and I to complete a divorce as co-petitioners without involving attorneys. The opposition continued to become increasingly confrontational and difficult, at which time, I engaged Peter to represent and assist me in navigating through the process. He was extremely mindful of the cost benefit trade-offs of various settlement scenarios and the associated risk and probability of achieving a particular outcome, whether that be through arbitration, mediation or before the judge. He focused on arriving at a fair and equitable settlement without contributing to further escalation, time and costs. I found him to be very open, communicative and responsive. The time and expense billed was very conservative and rational. I found his knowledge of recent case law very helpful, and his familiarity with many of the judges, mediators and arbitrators was valuable in the selection process and when working with them in mediation to arrive at a settlement. I highly recommend Peter Bunch and will certainly engage him again in the future.

Peter Bunch is an outstanding attorney and a decent man. I had a difficult divorce. I had no idea what to expect or what can go wrong in a legal system that seems to operate on law and procedure more than common sense. My divorce was a train wreck and there didn't seem to be any end or solution in sight. I had worked with and interviewed several attorneys, and had lost faith in the system, before I met Peter. The best day of my divorce was the day I walked into Peter's office, then bewildered and in a divorce that was a legal mess. Peter was a quick study. He was able to assess my situation and find a fair solution. He was there as a supportive and guiding presence step-by-step to the end. Peter is very smart. He thoroughly knows the law, how to apply the law, and he knows the judges and court system. He listens attentively, and actually hears and understands what his clients are saying. He takes the time to answer your questions, and at the same time addresses your underlying fears and concerns, while helping you to navigate an unfamiliar and often adversarial process. I have not seen another attorney who works as hard for his clients, treats them with such compassion, or pays such attention to their well-being as Peter. He is a strong advocate. He doesn't inflame difficult situations, but keeps his cool. He is firm, resolute, and fights hard for his clients, making sure they receive a fair treatment and outcome. In my work with Peter, he consistently showed the highest personal and professional integrity. He's a rare attorney and as his client you'd be fortunate to have Peter on your side as your legal counsel. He helped me end a terrible divorce and move on with my life. I highly recommend Peter, his paralegal Amanda, and his great team.

Peter Bunch is an outstanding attorney and I highly recommend him if you are in need of a divorce attorney. Peter took on my case when it was a train wreck with seemingly no end in sight and my costs and fees rising. He quickly go up to speed, zeroed in on the key issues and finalized my divorce in short order. Always conscious of fees, when appropriate, Peter delegated work to his very skilled and experienced paralegal Amanda. I will always be thankful for the day I walked into Peter’s office.
Peter’s legal knowledge is extraordinary. He is experienced, bright, articulate, aggressive, and a very practical problem solver. In short, he has all the necessary tools to get the job done quickly and efficiently. At each stage of the proceeding Peter explained the issues, kept me fully informed and discussed the choices I confrontied. I never had any doubts that Peter had my best interests at heart and always had my back. Peter Bunch is an exceptionally good lawyer. Equally important, he is a good person. Without hesitation, I wholeheartedly recommend Peter to anyone in need of his skills.

Mr. Peter Bunch provided advice on entering into a pre-nuptial agreement and then drafted an agreement suitable to our needs. My now-husband and I were in a uniquely challenging situation and Mr. Bunch assisted us in deciding how to move forward. As a fellow attorney I appreciate how valuable and rare Mr. Bunch’s knowledge and skills are in this complicated area of law.

I was referred to Peter by a good legal friend after leaving my initial divorce attorney. To say that things were complicated at that point would be an understatement. And I was not being represented well at all.
Nevertheless, he took on my case and worked diligently on behalf. He was extremely fair, gave me the good and bad scenarios and represented me against a less-than-honest ex-spouse and less-than-responsive opposing attorney.
Peter is exceptionally intelligent and well-versed on all aspects of divorce. He knows case law inside-out.
In the end he got me an incredibly fair outcome from one of the most conservative county courts in the State of Oregon (Clackamas) at least when it comes to men.
I have already given his name to two close friends who are enduring less than acceptable legal counsel from their current representation. I would not hesitate for a moment to refer Peter to my young adult sons if they needed outstanding legal counsel for domestic relations.
