What clients are saying:
R B. (San Fransisco, CA) January 3, 2018: I also contacted Joanne through a free service. I had missed a phone hearing and wasn't sure if I needed the services of an attorney. Joanne took the time to go over my situation thoroughly and promptly. I was extremely impressed in her knowledge and honesty. She was detailed in her emails and obviously put a considerable amount of thought into my situation to recommend the best course of action. She will be the first attorney that I will recommend for any family law matters.
Gwen V. (Torrance California) April 18, 2017: I contacted Joanne through a free service and she went out of her way to be very thorough and explained everything to me. I was so amazed that she would take the time to read my story and respond to every question and even offer a referral since she was out of my area. Very friendly and put my mind to ease regarding my legal problem. Would highly recommend!
Glenn Y.: Portland, OR May 14, 2015: I have just received an e-mail from Miss Reisman having to do with an aggressive telephone contact with a collection agency on a credit card debt I am unable to pay. At 80 years of age and in remission with two cancers, I am not exactly what you would call a prime candidate for re-entry into any job market. So it's clear, what with only SS, that I'm unable, but would gladly be able absent health and age problems, to fulfill my obligation to pay off the debt. Miss Reisman seemed optimistic that a small trailer that I live in -- which is rightfully an efficiency apartment and hardly "recreational" -- might be exempt from being taken. Just from the content of Miss Reisman's e-mail alone I now rest easier since I really don't know how long I will remain in remission. Unfortunately, my remission is with two cancers, one, I suspect, from too much radiation. Don't have me gush over the fact that someone of Miss Reisman's stature has taken the time to comfort someone less fortunate!
Nikki D. Portland, OR 7/3/2012: I was very fortunate to stumble across Joanne Reisman with Portland Legal Services. I needed assistance with an Oregon matter, but was out of state at the time. Luckily for me I found someone who was very trustworthy and dependable and who went out of her way to talk to me, understand the situation, and then assist me with ensuring the documentation I needed was completed. Thanks for your assistance. Nikki
E B. Portland, OR 5/2/2012: Guardian Angel! I cant recommend Joanne Reisman enough, she saved my life! I went through some really tough legal situations this year and she was there for me every step of the way - from preparing, to making informed decisions, to standing next to me (with the help of a cane because she had hurt her back and could barely walk!) at court. She always called to check on me, returned my calls and emails promptly - really cared about ME and the process I was going through. If you need help this is your attorney! Shes tough, smart, loving, and straight up!
D J. Portland, OR 4/6/2012: We were really upset about having to file Bankruptcy and had worked hard to avoid it. After going in to meet with Joanne Reisman at Portland Legal Services, we felt so much more at peace with the idea and actually saw a way to get through it. Joanne sat with us and discussed the reality of our situation, gave us educated and solid advice, and NEVER made us feel bad about it. Joanne has an extremely detailed understanding of the most current Bankruptcy and Real Estate laws, and a ton of experience in both areas. For us, filing Bankruptcy was a personal disaster and very scary. Joanne calmly guided us through the many different parts of what was to become an extremely successful Bankruptcy. She worked evening hours when needed and made sure we didn't miss a single deadline or detail. Oddly, Bankruptcy was one of the best decisions we've made in recent years and without Joanne, I can only imagine the nightmare it could have been. Thank you Joanne!
Stevyn T.: Portland, OR 5/29/2012: Made a potentially unpleasant situation easy and stress-free. I was well taken-care of by this attorney. Real, down-to-earth service.
moyer1111 Excellent Service – What I liked the most about Joanne is her level of knowlege and service. She is one of the smartest people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Her prices are very reasonable and she saved me alot of money and headaches during a most difficult divorce.
john_recht Superb customer service, extremely dependable, most caring and considerate, very affordable – I highly recommend Joanne Reisman as an attorney to anyone needing legal services. Her help was very timely and thorough, and she helped me through a very difficult time in my life with a perfect combination of professional advice and all the action that I needed at exactly the right times. I would not hesitate to ask Joanne to represent me again if I needed legal assistance on any matter.
Gina Figueroa Amazing lady and Attorney – Over eight years ago I needed an attorney and fate directed me to Joanne Reisman. During the time she was handling my case I not only got to see Joanne work for me as an attorney but also as a truly dicated advocate who went over and beyond to make sure I was taken care of. She is outstanding at what she does and will make sure that she gives you 100% of herself, and this is why if you need an attorney you will be pleased with the services rendered by Joanne. Today, I would not be or have what I have if it were not for the way Joanne fought my case. Thank you to a great lady, attorney and now friend.
A Google User reviewed 7 months ago Overall 3 / 3: Needed a will prepared quickly as well as advice on estate planning. Joanne Reisman gave 5-star service at very reasonable legal rates.
