FULL SERVICE ELDER LAW, HERE TO HELP PEOPLE YOUNG AND OLD.

My website has the heading "Helping Clark County People Young and Old."     As cliche as it sounds, I truly like helping people in times of real need.  My time as a teacher showed me the effect family issues can have on people's day to day lives of all ages.  I know that seeing a lawyer is not always at an easy time, but I like being there for people.

Best Attorney in Vancouver, Washington
I live in Portland and needed to find a good attorney in Vancouver, Washington to help with a matter regarding my elderly father. Not only did we find a good attorney, I would say the word outstanding comes to mind. Mr. Pops is a great listener and worked successfully to fully understand and deal with the situation that we were facing. He was always responsive with our family, especially with my father who was under a lot of stress. I appreciate the fact that Mr. Pops is very professional - yet he could always find a way to take some of our stress away with his tasteful humor, (it helped us keep things in perspective). He always made us feel secure that all would end up well in the end, and he has lived up to that in every way. I would highly recommend Joshua Pops, you will be thankful to be working with such an ethical, experienced attorney.

The Best Call I Ever Made
I met Joshua in December of 2016. My sister had suddenly passed away. She was the sole caretaker for my father who was suffering from dementia and was in a memory care facility. I found myself facing the most severe crisis of my life. I had no authority to make any decisions on my father's behalf or to pay his expenses. I knew I needed to petition the court for guardianship fast! My father passed away in December of 2018. It is now July, 2019. My father's estate just closed. I could write a book on the two and a half years that has passed. Joshua was there for me like a friend from day one. He told me the truth when I needed to hear it the most. He kept me focused on what was important and patiently tolerated my panic attacks and irrational fears. Every step of the way I knew Joshua was there with the best interests of my father in mind. I can sincerely say, if you ever find yourself in a situation like mine, Joshua Pops is the guy you want looking out for you!

Estate Planning
I was recommended Mr Pops by my neighbor to consult him about my wife’s dementia and how to best get help for her. In the process, he drafted my estate plan which consisted of a will, durable power of attorney, healthcare directive and disposition of remains. My children have stopped worrying about decisions they did not want to make about my health. I have stopped worrying about my wife’s future, and that my kids will inherit my estate. I have nothing but praise for Mr. Pops and have already recommended him to several people.

WILL
Josh prepared a will for me, along with all of the related documents. He was thorough and timely. He listened to what I wanted and made suggestions. His office staff was friendly and efficient.

Best decision I have ever made regarding my child support case
To say that I had a difficult and unheard of child support case is a vast understatement. After struggling through DCHS and attempting to find someone willing to take on my unique and complex case I happened to find Joshua, and thank God I did. From the moment I first spoke with Joshua he was confident he could help me, he assured me he would do everything in his power to make things right and I truly felt I finally had someone on my side, listening to me and genuinely caring about the outcome of my case. Joshua followed the entire case through from beginning to end with compassion, ingenuity, optimism and great tenacity. I cannot thank him enough, he has renewed my belief in justice. If you are undecided and weighing your options, I urge you to contact Joshua, you will be so pleased you did.

Excellent Attorney!!!
I went to the law office of Joshua pops for legal help on a wrongful child support order. From the moment I met Mr. Pops I was impressed by his optimism, motivation, and genuine concern for my case. Mr. Pops worked tirelessly on my case and kept in constant contact with me, and his fees were very reasonable. Mr. Pops won the case and brought peace of mind back to my life. If you’re looking for a great family law attorney I highly recommend Joshua Pops.

I highly recommend Joshua
I chose to meet with Joshua Pops based on his previous experience with children in the educational field. What a breath of fresh air! There is nothing ostentatious about Joshua. Unlike the previous attorney that I had met with, Joshua was very straight forward, not pretentious or arrogant and he put me at ease with his sense of humor. After having lawyers work against me and bill me for it, I was thrilled to have an attorney that did not hand me off to an assistant and Joshua actually included me in the process and kept me fully informed at all times. My case was a change to an existing parenting plan and the only regret I have is that I didn't have Joshua for the original case! I will not hesitate to hire him for any future help if I need it and I highly recommend his services. I could not be happier!

Quite pleased
Mr. Pops handled my business as well as I could have asked. I always felt up to date and informed. The case was handled in a timely fashion and I was pleased with the outcome. With his assistance, a murky situation was made clear and I can finally move on with my life. I recommend his services highly.
