Peter C Diamond, Attorney Family Law

Family law is complex and always evolving. Attorneys who handle family law cases need to prepare their cases with attention to detail. They must have excellent trial skills. They must keep up to date on the latest trends and developments in the law. And it doesn’t hurt to be well grounded and to have the life experience necessary to really understand your unique situation.

Peter C Diamond has been a family law attorney in Portland Oregon for twenty years. He is also a General Partner in the law firm of Warren Allen LLP, the premier full service law firm on Portland’s East Side for more than forty years.

I made this website to provide you with more information about my areas of expertise. I handle all types of family law cases, including Divorce & Separation, Domestic Partnerships, Custody & Parenting Time, Child Support, Spousal Support, Enforcement & Contempt, Interstate Matters, Grandparent’s Rights & Third-Party Custody, DHS Cases, Guardianships, Adoption, and Prenuptial & Postnuptial Agreements. Though my specialty is family law, I also have extensive experience in other areas, such as estate planning, real estate, collections, contracts, business, personal injuries and general civil trials and arbitrations.

My office is on Portland’s East Side, near I-205 and an easy drive from just about anywhere in the Multnomah, Clackamas or Washington county area. Please contact me between 8:30 and 5:00, Monday through Friday to discuss your specific needs. I look forward to helping you.
