    Attorney Profile

    Attorney Angela Chrysler Russo is a partner with the Cafferky | Russo law firm in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Widely regarded as one of the leading family law attorneys in the region, Ms. Russo has an extensive amount of training and experience with collaborative law and mediation, and she strives to always help her clients resolve their conflicts and reach agreements in a manner that is less adversarial and far more efficient than traditional divorce litigation.

    A former educator, Ms. Russo believes in helping her clients understand their options, and she provides invaluable advice and counsel to assist them with making the best-informed decisions about the matters that will affect their cases and their family's future. In all areas, she endeavors to be a strong pillar of support to those she serves by allaying their concerns and fears as she helps them transition into a new life.

    Through her calm and personable demeanor, Ms. Russo has defused highly contentious and volatile situations while helping her clients achieve the positive results they seek. She has been a welcome presence during very tumultuous times in her clients' lives, and she finds great reward in being able to provide a voice for her clients while protecting their rights and interests as well as those of their children.

    A 2004 magna cum laude graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, Ms. Russo earned her Master of Science in education from Bank Street College of Education in 2006. She then obtained her Juris Doctor from the University of California's Hastings College of Law in 2010. She holds her license to practice in California as well as Oregon, and she once served as a Felony Domestic Violence Deputy District Attorney in Contra Costa County.

    Active in her legal community, Ms. Russo is the current vice president of the Oregon Association of Collaborative Professionals, and she is a member of the International Association of Collaborative Professionals, the Oregon Mediation Association and the Clackamas Women Lawyers organization, among her other professional affiliations.

    In addition, Ms. Russo also gives back to her local community through her involvement as a family law mediator panelist for Clear Transitions and through her pro bono services. She also served as a Mock Trial coach for Dougherty Valley High School and supports several other local high school law academies as a mentor to students.
