Representing Children with Care & Competence
When it comes to legal matters, the stakes and standards for minors are different. They require talented, experienced, and compassionate legal counsel working on their behalf.
The attorneys at Gevurtz Menashe act as lawyers and advocates for children in family law
cases in Oregon and Washington. In family law cases, the judge will want to avoid having your child appear in court, as that can be a very stressful and traumatic event. Instead, the court will sometimes appoint an attorney to speak on behalf of the child and advocate for the child’s best interests. Parents may request an attorney for their child, the child may request an attorney, or sometimes a judge will appoint an attorney for a child without one being requested. Whatever the situation, our team can help.
