    Attorney Profile

    Focusing his practice exclusively on family law matters, Daniel S. Margolin is a founding partner at Stephens & Margolin LLP. From the firm’s offices in his native city of Portland, Oregon, he represents clients throughout the greater metropolitan area. Mr. Margolin has been admitted to practice before all Oregon state courts since 2002, and he was admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon in the following year.

    The primary portion of Mr. Margolin’s practice involves his representation of people who are facing the end of their marriages. At the outset, he explains the provisions of Oregon law that cover child custody and visitation, spousal and child support, and the division of marital assets and debts. Because of his training and experience in mediation and collaborative law, Mr. Margolin is often able to help his clients come to an accord on these matters through those less-adversarial methods of alternative dispute resolution. However, where that is not possible, he advocates forcefully on their behalf before family court judges.

    In addition to his divorce practice, Mr. Margolin has prepared and reviewed prenuptial and postmarital agreements, and he has assisted clients whose marriages have previously been legally dissolved and who want to have existing support or parenting court orders modified or enforced. His successful track record has earned him a 10.0 “Superb” peer review rating through Avvo and other positive recognition from his fellow attorneys.

    Mr. Margolin is frequently asked to deliver presentations on family law topics to continuing legal education attendees and other groups, and he has had several articles published. He is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and the New York University School of Law.
