Attorney Profile

A partner at Morris Stannard & Batalden Family Law PC, Erin K. Morris focuses her practice solely on divorce and other family law matters. She has been admitted to practice before all Oregon state courts since 2012, and as she is also admitted to practice in Washington state, she is able to represent clients in both of those jurisdictions from her firm’s offices in Portland, Oregon.

Ms. Morris handles a variety of family law matters for her clients. Chief among these involve divorce and its related issues of parenting time, the division of what are often complex marital assets and financial obligations, and child and spousal support. Ms. Morris has also provided pro bono representation for children who are the subject of high-conflict custody battles. When litigation proves to be necessary, she advocates on behalf of her divorcing clients in the courtroom, but she also is able to help many of them come to an accord on those matters through taking the lead in negotiating a comprehensive settlement agreement.

Ms. Morris regularly prepares and reviews prenuptial and post-marital agreements, and her family law caseload has additionally included helping clients whose marriages have already been legally dissolved and who are now seeking to have existing support and parenting court orders enforced or modified. She majored in politics as an undergraduate at the University of San Francisco, and in her senior year, she spent a semester as a visiting student at American University studying international relations before returning to California and receiving a Bachelor of Arts in 2007. Ms. Morris subsequently enrolled at Willamette University College of Law, and in 2012, she was awarded her Juris Doctor.
