Jonathan Trause believes that most Family Law cases can be resolved outside the courtroom, but he is an experienced trial attorney when matters cannot settle. He has appeared on behalf of clients in dozens (if not hundreds) of hearings and trials throughout Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington, Columbia, and Marion counties.
Jon is a member of the Oregon State Bar, the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association, the Oregon Association of Collaborative Professionals, the American Bar Association, and sits on the Executive Committee of the Gus J. Solomon Inn of Court. He received his J.D. from Lewis and Clark Law School with a certificate in Public Interest Law and is a graduate of San Francisco State University, where he majored in Creative Writing.
Jon has lived in several places but has called Portland, Oregon home since 2004. In his free time, Jon enjoys spending time with his family and friends. He plays several different instruments, has co-written and co-produced theatrical plays, and once co-wrote a short film that was screened at the Cannes Film Festival.
