Attorney Profile

An attorney and shareholder at Buckley Law, Jaye W. Taylor provides legal services for clients dealing with family law matters in Lake Oswego and Portland, Oregon, as well as Clackamas County. She is licensed to practice in Oregon and Washington state, and is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington and the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon.

Small-business owners, and those with pensions and other complex assets, may face serious consequences if they do not have an advocate with experience handling these issues in a divorce. Ms. Taylor has spent more than 20 years representing clients in these situations, as well as assisting couples with premarital agreements, pre- and post-divorce estate planning, family trusts, will and trust litigation, contested guardianships and conservatorships.

When children are the heart of the issue, parents who are divorcing may need help developing effective parenting plans, or modifying existing orders such as visitation or support due to relocation or changes of circumstances. Reaching agreements with a minimum of conflict reduces the trauma for the child, but at times, domestic violence issues, parental abductions or parental alienation may make immediate and drastic legal actions necessary. Ms. Taylor handles these sensitive cases and others involving emergency custody, grandparents’ rights and adoption.

Before earning her Juris Doctor from the Lewis & Clark Law School, Ms. Taylor graduated from the University of California, Irvine, with a Bachelor of Arts degree. For her superior legal skills and her adherence to ethics, Ms. Taylor has received the highest rating possible of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell.

AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies.
