Efficient, crystal clear communication and diligent.
I’m incredibly impressed with Stacey and wholeheartedly recommend her. We retained Stacey to perform a QDRO for a 401k split as part of a divorce settlement. Very clear expectations set up front, timely and efficient communications and utterly diligent in following up progress and coordinating with other attorneys. It’s an emotionally difficult time going through this sort of process, even with an amicable split. Having someone like Stacey involved reduced our stress levels significantly. Highly highly recommend.

Very Professional
After my divorce my ex petitioned the Oregon Court of Appeals to review the lower courts decision regarding the settlement. Ms. Smith fought hard for my case and presented such a great argument that the court sided with us and affirmed the lower courts decision. My ex then tried to take the battle to the Oregon Supreme Court where Ms. Smith again argued as to why the case should not be heard. They denied the petition. Through it all, Stacey kept me informed and up to date with all the happenings in a timely manner. I was extremely pleased and would recommend Ms. Smith to anyone needing legal help.

I hired Stacey on a recommendation, she did an amazing job on getting the QDRO/retirement finalized on the last step on my divorce. She was very thorough on every step, plus the administrator made her jump thru extra hoops and she navigated it beautifully!! I can't say enough about her and the whole experience. Hire Stacey!! Awsome attorney!!!

Highly Satisfied
I have had the opportunity to work with many attorneys in my lifetime and Stacey was exceptional. She had a thorough knowledge of trust and estate law and was able to communicate how it applied, to myself as well as the plaintiff's attorney. During negotiations she was a calming influence to all parties and kept things moving forward. She clearly explained to me the strengths and weaknesses of my position thus potential options, but did not dictate my choices. She made an emotionally difficult situation easier. She also connected me with outside resources for expert advice beyond her own scope. Her billing policies were reasonable. I highly recommend.

Extraordinary family lawyer
Stacey is an amazing lawyer to work with; she helped me through every step of the process for divorce and child custody. She explained everything from start to finish and took the stress off of me during the hard times. I was able focus on my daily life having the trust in her to provide me with the absolute best service for my specific case. Given the unique circumstances of my custody case and the short time period, Stacey pushed to have everything finished in time and took extra effort to do so. She is extremely smart, very friendly, and passionate in helping others. She fought for my family and provided the best possible outcome. Due to her services, she provided confidence during the hard times, helped my life get back to normal, and has brought peace to my family. Stacey someone who has my up-most respect and will always be thankful for what she has done for me.
