Experience A Better Future After Divorce

Ryan Hamilton - Divorce Attorney
Ryan Hamilton Superlawyer

I chose to be a divorce lawyer and custody attorney because the first time I saw how much happier someone could be at the end of a divorce, I knew I was doing the right thing. It changed my entire perspective on what divorce actually means for someone. It means a new direction, a new path, a new life. It means being able to find happiness again.

Megan Paull Superlawyer

Being a family law attorney always felt like the right path for me. I have always had an ability to connect with people and understand their perspective. This has been a great strength in helping people through divorce and custody disputes. As an Oregon divorce lawyer, I do everything I can to make sure people make the best decisions for their family and future.

Daniel Strausbaugh Superlawyer

I have a passion for helping people through difficult situations. Divorces and custody disagreements can feel overwhelming and confusing for people going through them, which is why I do everything possible to help people find the solutions they need and give them peace of mind. It’s very rewarding to give people a better future.

Katie Sullivan

I started my career clerking for the family law court in Clackamas County.  I joined the Sherwood Family Law team and have found that helping people through divorces, results in very positive things for our clients by the end of the divorce process.  It’s always uplifting to help someone through a difficult time, and to see them experience happiness at the end of it.

Hannah Lee - Oregon Family Law Attorney

After graduating from law school in New Jersey, I started my legal career clerking for a Judge assigned to child protection cases and working as a staff attorney with the Community Health Law Project in New Jersey. I made the decision to move to Oregon and to pursue an opportunity to practice family law.  I am passionate about helping people in vulnerable and complex situations related to family law, and am excited to have an opportunity to help people with divorce and custody issues find a better path forward.

I love being part of real solutions for all of the people we help. With the right guidance, I have seen people lift themselves up and find happiness at the end of difficult divorces and custody disputes. I think we are more than just divorce lawyers and custody attorneys. I know that the guidance we offer works, because I have seen it work time and time again.  

Shelby Arthur - Legal Assistant

I graduated from Linfield University with a Bachelor’s in Law, Rights and Justice.  My first experience with family law was as an intern Yamhill County Circuit Court Judge Collins.  Pursuing a career in family law has been a passion of mine.  I very much enjoy meeting and speaking with clients and helping our attorneys.

I am drawn to family law because I can see how it truly helps people navigate an uncertain path and find their way to the happiness they have been in search of. Through compassion and empathy, it is my goal to help guide and support our clients through this challenging time. It is very rewarding to be a part of someone’s journey towards a better future.

I meet with professionals in Sherwood and neighboring communities to make sure that when our clients need help from an outside professional, we have referrals in place that we trust.  Clients face many external problems while going through a divorce or custody case, and need access to mortgage brokers, real estate agents, counselors, tax professionals and more.

Rebekah Osowick

As one of the firm’s legal receptionists and intake specialists, I know how important it is to make sure all of our client’s have a peaceful and compassionate experience when calling our office. I feel very fortunate to be there to help our client’s find a path to a better future!

Sierra Shick

When reaching out to our office for the first time, I will greet and guide you through our client onboarding process and help you make a decision on whether scheduling a consultation with our office is the best fit for you.  I find it to be very rewarding to listen and help people make a decision on how to move forward and improve their lives, especially through a divorce or custody dispute.
