Firm Overview

The Law Office of Daniel Peters is located in downtown Portland, Oregon, and focuses on family law and domestic relations cases in the greater Portland area.  Our practice has recently represented clients in Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, Columbia, Polk, and Marion Counties and beyond.  We handle all aspects of divorce, separation, asset division, child and spousal support, custody/parenting plans, and post-judgment modifications.  We also provide strong representation in restraining order and stalking order matters.


We believe that success in Family Law requires a multi-dimensional approach: goal assessment and education up front, creative negotiation focused on settlement, and, if necessary, strong advocacy in court.  We know our clients do not want unnecessary conflict, but understand their need for protection.  Our goal is to empower clients with a greater understanding of the legal process to better shape their decisions now and in the future.  We promise you that:

  • We will always be there to listen with care and compassion.
  • We will provide honest and clear advice, and honor the client’s right to make the important decisions that will affect their lives.
  • We will move the case forward as efficiently as possible, and at the least cost.
  • We will support you in reaching your goals.
