Portland attorney and Gevurtz Menashe shareholder Albert A. Menashe

Albert A. Menashe

Co-Founder, Shareholder
There is one word that continually arises when you ask his peers to describe Albert: professional. And since 1982, he has helped shape how the profession of family law is practiced in Oregon like no other attorney. Albert knows he has a direct impact on the lives of clients during a life-altering event when not having proper counsel can put their well-being in jeopardy. Tough times like these call for the experience and insight Albert has honed over the past four decades, and it's why he's often called first when family law issues arise. 

Known for his diligence and dedication at work, Albert is equally adept at making time for himself and his family. Drawn to the culture, history and cuisine of Italy, he travels often and afar. Or you might find him out for a relaxing stroll on an Oregon beach daydreaming about his dream job: helping contestants navigate tough questions as the host of the game show, "Jeopardy."
