We seek an associate attorney with 0-4 years of family law experience to join our Portland,
Oregon office. While you feel the full speed of our client needs/demands, you’ll appreciate the self-directed opportunities to fully practice law and personally work with clients from day one.
On your own, but not alone. We’ll be available with our layered experience and ideas to assist and guide you to become your best.

This isn’t your typical family law attorney position. At SKH, associates can have their own cases that require conducting a hearing in the morning and in the afternoon collaborate with a partner on a case of first impression in Oregon. SKH associates handle complex and intriguing legal issues, often involving substantial assets and business interests, and assist on some of the region’s biggest family law cases.

For us, clients come first.

Stahancyk, Kent & Hook is a family law firm that has been providing clients with creative solutions for difficult times since 1986. With thirty years serving the Northwest market, SKH represents family law clients across five Oregon and SW Washington locations.

Our dedicated team focuses on providing clients exceptional legal services and outstanding customer service. We look for the most positive pathway to resolution for clients. With such unwavering standards, solid protocols and ever-expanding schedules, our professional team thrives with these challenges.

It feels good to do it right, and we celebrate working together. We win awards because we work hard to keep our staff strong, especially during COVID, leaving nothing to chance. Named a 2021 Top Workplace by the Oregonian. This award means we will ask for your best, expect you to work hard for your own success, and provide you a great expanse of opportunity and the resources to succeed.
