Mindy Stannard handles divorce, custody, parenting time, paternity, child support and Family Abuse Prevention Act Restraining Order Cases. In addition, Mindy handles some juvenile court cases and some types of uncontested adoption proceedings. She is admitted to practice law in both Oregon and Washington.
Many of Mindy's current cases are in Multnomah, Clackamas, or Washington County. Mindy also handles cases in many other counties throughout the State of Oregon, including Clatsop County, Lane County, Linn County, Marion County and Columbia County. Each county has different local rules that apply to family law cases.
Mindy is committed to making sure that she keeps up to date on changes to each county's local rules, and takes the time to explain to each client how the local rules and local practices will impact the client's case.
Prior to focusing her practice on family law, Mindy worked in a general practice firm where she gained experience with family law, estate planning, criminal law, real estate law, personal injury and civil litigation. Because issues from so many other areas of the law arise in family law cases, Mindy frequently utilizes the knowledge she gained from her past work with these other areas of the law.
Mindy takes the time to answer her clients' questions in a detailed manner, and is committed to effectively help navigate her clients through each step of the case. Mindy strives to advocate zealously for her clients' best interests and to help keep her clients on track to obtain the best possible outcome. Each case presents different challenges, and Mindy works with her clients to find creative solutions to each family's unique situation.
