Modern Law Founder
When I was 19 my parents went through a divorce. I hadn’t seen it coming, especially as the drama of the divorce and the resulting custody battle unfolded. My brothers and I were heartbroken. Our worlds were completely rocked.
At the time, I was all too aware of the role my parents’ attorneys played during this life changing transition for all of us. Their divorce changed the course of my life. That’s when I knew that I wanted to be a family law attorney.
What we do as family law attorneys affects people’s lives, and the lives of their children for decades and I absolutely love it.
Journey to Family Law
After I graduated from Law School from the University of Oregon in 2005, I started seeing what many lawyers see. Most of the people who needed our help couldn’t afford attorneys and lawyers needed more work. In 2008, I went out on my own in search of a better way of doing things for attorneys and clients alike. My primary goal was to lower the cost of legal services for clients, and reduce accounts receivables for the firm.
Favorite Types of Cases
Billie’s favorite types of cases involve complex custody and property division issues. Where some attorneys would prefer to fight easier battles, Billie enjoys the challenge of investigating, fully understanding and conquering the more intricate cases; showing clients who may have thought they’ve lost everything that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
