About William

Learn William’s areas of practice.

The product of a father in the U.S. Navy, William spent his formative years moving from one East Coast town to the next. College took William out west and a film degree pushed him to the bright lights of Hollywood. After spending the better part of a decade working behind the camera capturing fake families dealing with made up problems, William decided to set his sights on a profession that would allow him to help real families struggling with real life problems.

Effective and professional
I hired a different attorney in 2019 and my divorce case dragged on for 17 months with no progress. I then hired William Boaz. William worked harder than I would have ever imagined. He is an effective communicator and a terrific negotiator. He understands PERS and has a great skill-set for explaining the division of investments and assets. He saved me thousands of dollars in my settlement and was able to resolve my case in less than 30 days! William really understands the emotional component in divorce and he speaks to clients with respect and compassion. He always provided legal advise and then clarified that the final decision was mine.

Very pleasant experience
William was quick to answer any and all questions I had during the process, if there were any delays for any reason he always called me to explain the situation, he turned a stressful situation into a smooth process, well worth the money!

Would highly recommend
Will worked with me for more than a year on a parenting time case that took on a life of it's own. He was communicative the whole time and laid things out in a way I could understand. When we ended up in court despite all attempts not to he was prepared and made revisions that could be signed that moment. I'd recommend him to anyone, well worth the money.

Stellar Service
I contacted Boaz legal with a non contested divorce request. William helped me and after all the paperwork was done and filed it only took 15 calendar days to get the judgement completed and signed by the judge. Fantastic service and excellent advice. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

The BEST!
I had the pleasure of being represented by William Boaz, and let me tell you.. he was the best lawyer I could have ever asked for. He always had my best interest in mind, explained things so well to me, and was always there whenever something went sideways. I could not have made it out of my divorce without him! If I ever needed a lawyer again, he would be the first and only one I'd call!

Happy father
I have hired William twice now to help me in matters related to my parenting time and both times he was successful in defending my rights as a father. William will listen to your concerns and be honest and upfront with you he will not bs you. I will definitely be using William for all my family law needs.

Family Attorney | Jan 16
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I am a California attorney that worked with Mr. Boaz on a divorce case involving filings in both California and Oregon. Mr. Boaz is very intelligent, prompt and efficient. His representation of my California client in the Oregon matter was superb. His reputation is so strong that other attorneys I consulted with in his area recommended him. From now on, he is the attorney I refer anyone to when they have a family law matter in his part of Oregon."
