Review Lewis Landerholm
  • Bad Law Firm

    1.0 star

    Posted by a client

    This firm has lots of workers who want to charge their time to you with very little legal experience. Landerholm takes your credit card information to insure they can charge you whatever. You pay for secretaries, office managers, etc at $210/per hr. After 2 weeks of charges with no representation, I got out as quick as I could. I found another attorney that started working immediately and only charged for the work he did. There are some good law firms out there but this is not one of them.

    Lewis Irwin Landerholm’s response: “My apologies on the lateness of this response. I am so sorry that you did not have a good experience with us. Our clients are very important to us and your experience was unique. I wanted to make sure that you understand that in no situations do we bill for our secretaries, office managers etc time. I would very much love the opportunity to review your invoice to make sure that we did not bill you in mistake. Please feel free to reach out to me at 503-227-0200 and I will happily work with you to fix any problems with billing.”
  • Excellent service and legal advice. They keep the interests of the clients first.

    Lewis has been my lawyer for the past year, while I have been going through a divorce. He initially served in an advisory capacity while I attempted to negotiate with my ex-husband. When it was shown that my ex would not cooperate or work with me, Lewis stepped up to the plate to ensure that my interests were protected. HIs office kept me informed of my rights, while also working with me to ensure that I had the best outcome possible. They were supportive, kind, and understanding even during the most emotional periods, when I was unreasonable. They answered even the most mundane questions and were always willing to talk to me about what was going on with my case. As anyone who has ever gone through a divorce knows, you can experience a real rollercoaster of emotions. I felt protected and secure, which was important in my situation considering the personal history. I would highly recommend Landerholm Law to anyone seeking legal counsel. I'm a student, with limited income, and they were very much willing to work with me on payments. I didn't expect them to be so understanding, so that really helped alleviate some of the stress I felt. Again, I highly recommend this law firm. They are all highly professional people, but they are also very human.

    Lewis Irwin Landerholm’s response: “Serena I'm so glad were were able to help. Having options really makes a difference. And as you know, communicating with our clients so they really feel protected is very important to us. Thank you for being such a great client. I wish you all the best.”
  • Excellent Firm!

    I was a little nervous when trying to find an attorney and law firm to take my case. I had a prior experience which was horrific. I called and spoke with Camille who was very honest, supportive, and informative. She scheduled me an initial consultation with Lewis and I was pleased with their varied options of packages. I had my documents prepared and whenever I had any questions, Camille would answer them whether it involved service, invoices, or status updates of what was yet to come. She was very patient in explaining everything and I noticed she treated every client this way. I appreciate the staff very much and I highly recommend them.

    Lewis Irwin Landerholm’s response: “Thank you for that recommendation. We have always had a strong commitment to help people whatever their finances. In fact, we are in the process of launching an entire firm that helps people who do not need full representation. It's called Oregon Affordable Family Law Center. I hope that things are still going well for you! All my Best!”

    You meet with the lead attorney and get passed to a junior partner.

    They spent down a $4500 retainer in less than 7 days and still hadn't filed required paperwork although everything needed was provided during the initial meeting.

    It's now the 11th hour and now we're being told the required paperwork won't be filed unless we double the retainer before the day's end but wait, there's more;

    This matter was about protecting the safety and well being of a child.

    I ended the relationship.

    Next morning handed new counsel same materials. Everything was wrapped up in our favor (child safe) less than 48 hours later.

    Short version: After needless drama, abuse, and expense, a competitor handled everything in 80% less time for 30% of the original retainer paid to Landerholm.

    Lewis Irwin Landerholm’s response: “First let me say that I am happy that your child is safe and secure. Because children are so important to us here, I am disturbed by your experience. One of the things that I explain in the initial consultation is that you as the client will be working with one of my attorneys and that should you have any problems, to reach out to me so that I can make sure things are working as they should and that you feel you have the right attorney. I know that in your case we did a considerable amount of work, but I also understand that your goals are of paramount importance. I would love the opportunity to speak with you about the specific points that didn't work for you, so that I can improve moving forward. While it is rare for us to have any kind of problem with our clients, I want to always pay attention when a client is upset and see if I can turn things around. Thank you for your honesty, and I encourage you to reach out and give me a call at 503-227-0200.”
  • This lawyer is unresponsive and uncaring. Only in it for the money.

    Do not use this lawyer. Lewis me with me initially about my divorce and told meme would need almost $1000.00 for a retainer and that it would not be more than that since I was already divorced and we just had to amend a few things. Next thing I know my cars was transferred to another lawyer in his firm that was less experienced so "we could keep,the cost down". This other lawyer was,rude and disrespectful to me and contained to ask for more and more money. Now I have paid $3028.00 and Lewis has still not submitted our papers to the judge . He is unresponsive to my emails and just continues to wan more and more money. These lawyers are dishonest and misled me by telling me that the cost would be a lot lower than it actually is. Do not use this lawyer. There are plenty other good lawyers in the portland area that care about people and not just money.

    Lewis Irwin Landerholm’s response: “One of the frustrating parts of family law to many clients is that often what they "think" is happening in their case, is not actually the case upon review. However, we like to partner with our clients and try not to set the financial bar too high with the caveat that upon review, we might need to adjust our quote. I am so sorry that your case and goals did not align with your initial consultation. It is frustrating for us also, when we have to pass along bad news or the opposing party is not as amenable as we had hoped for. My hope is that you found someone who was able to accomplish what you needed with as little headache as possible. Additionally, while I have handled initial consultations in the past, it was always explained that they would be paired with an attorney that would be the best match to meet your needs. My apologies that we did not share that clearly enough. I would happily take your suggestions on ways we could communicate that better.”
  • Lewis Landerholm is an intelligent, compassionate, and a ethical attorney who I highly recommend.

    Mr. Lewis Landerholm is an intelligent, compassionate, and an ethical attorney.

    Lewis quickly took action on my behalf in what has proven itself to be a highly complicated and extremely distressing case. His representation of me and his ability to prevail in court is incredible. He is a man of honorable character, integrity, professionalism, and is full of knowledge. When I hired Lewis, I not only hired one extremely wonderful person; I hired a stellar team.

    Along with Lewis, attorney Joanna Posey, Shelly, and Josh have been working tirelessly to pull all the pieces together, which is something that has far outweighed my expectations. Since 2011 Lewis and his team have represented me in family law; divorce, child custody, domestic violence and adoption. I will be forever grateful for what Lewis and his team have done to protect the safety and best interests of my daughter and I!

    I would highly recommend Lewis and Landerholm Law without hesitation!

    I hired Mr. Landerholm to represent me in a child custody case. My initial meeting with him was very positive, but it quickly became apparent that Mr. Landerholm likes to play mediator more than that of representing his clients as a lawyer. When after a month of not accomplishing anything (other than a bill for each and every minute of his telephone conversations with the other attorney and emails that led nowhere), I came to the conclusion that I needed a lawyer with more experience, more strategy, and less costly conversation. Once I switched attorneys, my situation was resolved in our favor within two weeks, and we actually settled out of court. My costs with the second (very experienced) lawyer were one third the cost of Mr. Landerholm, and my lawyer actually got something done in the process. Hopefully, with more experience, Mr. Landerholm with become more efficient and more affordable.

    Lewis Irwin Landerholm’s response: “Unfortunately, this review was posted a year after I handled the case, and so there was little I could do to eradicate any problems you encountered with us. What i can tell you is that while I do prize mediation as a beneficial path in family law, it looks like you and I may not have been on the same page. My sincerest apologies on my lack of communication skills with you, both to what we were doing and to make sure you were aligned with that. Since then we have not encountered this problem and now use strategic case planning from your first meeting. I wanted you to know we have taken your comments to heart and made changes. I am glad you achieved a favorable result.”

    Mr. Landerholm is both trustworthy and highly knowledgeable in Family Law . He was able to clearly answer all questions concerning my case. He provided explanation of realistic expectations and outcomes in regard to child custody, parenting time, and child/spousal support . Mr. Landerholm was professional while at the same time easy to talk with in regards to the specifics of my case. Phone calls were consistently returned in a very timely manner as well as written communication. I consistently felt thoroughly advised on the pros and cons of taking certain legal action throughout the case. While going through such a personal matter it was nice to know that I could trust my attorney to direct and advise in regards to the long term effects of choices I was having to make at such a turbulent time. I would recommend Mr. Landerholm and would not hesitate to use his services if needed in the future.

    I can't thank Lewis enough. He has been such a fantastic attorney. From the very beginning he was very straightforward and honest and was very upfront in letting me know what to expect. I'm so glad that I was able to hire him to fight for the custody of my children. I would have been completely lost without his help and my kids would not have ended up with me as primary parent without all of his hard work. His firm was so professional in how they handled everything and they were always available when I needed to talk or was stressed about our trial. Thank you so much for all the hard work. I would tell everyone to hire you.
