Gwen is an experienced mediator and Family Law attorney. She concentrates her practice in the area of divorce, child custody, parenting time, adoption, child support, spousal support, mediation and collaborative law.

Gwen prioritizes being accessible to her clients and providing straight forward, practical advice to meet each client's unique circumstances. She chooses to practice in the area of family law because of her desire to help people in a difficult period of their life. She knows that going through a divorce is a very emotional and trying time. Her goal is to guide her clients through the divorce process as efficiently and painlessly as possible, while protecting the children from the turmoil of divorce. To that end, she has been trained in the use of mediation and collaborative law. She has served as a court appointed child's attorney and has received extensive training in minimizing the impact of divorce on children.

Gwen was a former Deputy District Attorney in charge of the dependency and child support units in Lincoln County, Oregon. In that capacity, Gwen has worked with children and families in crisis and has a solid understanding of how child support is calculated, possible rebuttals to include in the calculation, and child support modifications.

Most family law matters do not need to be resolved through contested litigation, which can drain a family’s emotional and financial resources. Gwen focuses her practice on helping clients resolve conflict creatively, respectively and privately. This non-adversarial focus allows clients to come up with creative and meaningful solutions that are in the best interests of their family.
