Every lawyer can identify a legal problem. But after nearly four decades of practicing law, Paul Saucy knows how to quickly identify a legal solution.
Area of Practice
Family Law (Divorce/Custody/Support)
Paul was drawn to the practice of divorce and family law because it offered him the opportunity to help people navigate through difficult situations. Paul understands a divorce is more than a piece of paper that dissolves a marriage. Paul understands that a parenting plan is more than the times parents pick up and drop off their children. Paul understands that support is more than a monthly payment. Paul understands people.
Paul has been an active member of the local and state bar associations throughout his career. He was the past Chair of the Oregon State Bar Family and Juvenile Law Section. He is a frequent lecturer at Oregon State Bar continuing legal education programs, the Willamette University College of Law, and various other legal groups on subjects related to divorce. Paul is one of only 1,600 lawyers throughout the United States to be named a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, which is an organization of practitioners in the field of family law generally recognized by judges and attorneys as preeminent family law practitioners with a high level of knowledge, skill and integrity.
Paul has been honored with numerous awards from a variety of groups, including receipt of the Oregon State Bar President’s Membership Service Award for his contributions to the legal profession. Paul has been selected annually to the Oregon Super Lawyers list since 2007.
