Background & Professional Experience
Divorce Lawyer in Portland | Lisa E. Martin

Mission

Though I was born in Spokane, Washington and presently reside in Clark County, Washington, I have spent a good portion of my life residing in the Portland-metropolitan area. As a result, one of my objectives as a family law lawyer has always been to represent people in both Oregon & Washington, and to help and compassionately guide those going through a divorce, child custody or child support battle, spousal support (alimony) matter, or a domestic violence circumstance.

Education & Law School Legal Experience

I enrolled at Gonzaga University School of Law in 1996. That summer following my first year at Gonzaga, I was elected as an associate editor for the Gonzaga Law Review. and was also hired as a legal intern for Columbia Legal Services. This is where my exposure and love for family law began. As a Rule 9 intern for Columbia Legal Services, I counseled and represented clients in the areas of divorce, child custody, child visitation, child support, spousal support - alimony, and domestic violence. My article entitled, "Providing Equal Justice for the Domestic Violence Victim: Due Process and the Victim's Right to Counsel" would later be published in the Gonzaga Law Review. In 1999, I graduated from law school and passed the Washington State Bar Exam. I subsequently passed the Oregon State Bar exam in 2004.

Post-Law School Legal Experience & The Martin Law Firm, P.C.

Following law school, I was an associate attorney for three years in a prominent, AV-rated law firm in Longview, Washington. There too my practice focused on divorce, child custody, and other family law matters. While practicing law in Longview, I was active in the legal community serving as a board member for the Cowlitz County CASA, Cowlitz-Wahkiakum County Legal Aid Program, and served as the vice president/president-elect for the Cowlitz-Wahkiakum County Bar Association.

I am an active family law, child custody, and divorce lawyer in Clark County, Washington as well as Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Columbia County, Oregon. I have represented clients and appeared in court on behalf of clients in other counties in both states. Prior to establishing the Martin Law Firm, P.C. in 2008, I practiced law in Portland for four years and represented both Oregon and Washington clients in high-asset divorce cases and other family law matters while employed by a Portland family law firm.
