My focus is providing quality services at reasonable rates. I am very passionate about the work I do and about my clients.
I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you efficient and cost effective legal assistance. I offer rates based upon hourly rates, flat fee for certain services, or, unbundled services and discounting for those falling under the federal poverty income guidelines.
I am a solo practitioner at my firm, Tresa G. Cavanaugh, Attorney at Law. My office is located in downtown Vancouver, Washington. My practice areas are: Criminal Law, Family Law, Estate Planning, Guardianships, Contract disputes, Debt Resolution, Adoption and Landlord Tenant Law. My practice is primarily focused on assisting those of moderate means. I was a paralegal for a number of years prior to going to law school and I believe those skills as a paralegal greatly contribute to my success today. I spent 7 years working as a legal assistant for the Lewis & Clark Legal Clinic, before and during the time I attended the evening law program. The Clinic was the teaching clinic for the law school and law students assisted low income clients. This is something that I have carried into my own practice as I now mentor paralegal student interns as well as student interns from Lewis& Clark Law School. In my spare time I enjoy the sport of agility with my CavaPoo, Suzie-Q and Border Collie, Jackie, and attending my husband’s shows at various blues events. I am a native of the Pacific Northwest being born in Portland and having spent most of my life in the Portland area.
