Attorney Profile

Attorney Lauren E. Walchli is a partner with the Peterson, Peterson, Walchli & Roberson LLP law firm in Hillsboro, Oregon. A highly rated, award-winning attorney with more than 12 years of legal experience, Ms. Walchli focuses her practice primarily on family law, and she serves the rights and interests of her clients throughout the greater Portland metro region and surrounding areas who are going through divorce with their issues involving custody, support and other related matters.

In addition to divorce-related issues, Ms. Walchli also assists with adoptions and guardianships. Many of her clients include business owners and high net worth individuals who have very complex needs and goals when it comes to property division. She has extensive experience handling matters such as compensation packages, stock options and other complex assets, and she offers invaluable advice to her clients about how to best divide these assets during the divorce process.

In all cases, Ms. Walchli strives to help her clients avoid litigation and resolve their disputes and reach agreements as amicably and efficiently as possible. To this end, she routinely uses collaboration to help her clients come to terms they can accept. Along with handling all issues regarding divorce and asset division, Ms. Walchli also assists individuals and business owners with consumer bankruptcy law in order to help them find the relief they seek for their overwhelming debt.

A 2002 graduate of the University of Oregon, Ms. Walchli attended William & Mary School of Law, where she was a member of the William & Mary Environmental Law and Policy Review. She obtained her Juris Doctor in 2006, and the Oregon State Bar admitted her to practice that same year. She is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon.

Highly well-versed in her field, Ms. Walchli has published several articles on collaborative practice and other topics, and she has served as a co-author for the Debtor-Creditor Section Newsletter of the Oregon State Bar. She has also served as chair of the Washington County Bench-Bar Subcommittee.
