Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Yes! Actually it is appreciated that you attempted to write your own document. It speaks to the firm that you are willing to try to figure out your situation which makes it easier to discuss changes with you.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Google is the enemy. Our viewpoint is that it is great that you want to know more, but at the same time don't confuse your google search with a law degree. Anything can be a truth online.

How frequently does your firm use mediation, arbitration, or collaborative law to resolve cases?

As often as possible. Usually it saves both you and the other side money, while making both sides become highly involved in the process. Attorneys are good but by nature, we are adversarial.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

I know how it is to be a client (I have been before), a paralegal, and an attorney. Besides having experience and tenacity, I highly prioritize communication with my clients and want nothing more than you to walk away happy with the representation no matter how it turns out.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

Of course. There would be a charge for the preparation of course, but if you believe you can handle it on your own, by all means take a wack at it!

Nik Yanchar

Yanchar Law Office, LLC

He graduated from the University of Toledo in 2004 in Paralegal Studies. From there he worked in various firms until he made the decision to go to law school in 2008 to pursue a career as an attorney.
In 2011 he graduated from the Western Michigan Thomas Cooley Law School with honors, and then continued his education and received an LL.M. in Gay Rights Law. During his time at law school, he was a two-time winner of a school-wide litigation competition, while also participating in Moot Court and ADR competitions and groups.
He became licensed in the State of Oregon in 2012, and always focused in the areas of employment discrimination, personal injury, and have done other areas such as family law, document/contract review, small business advice, landlord-tenant evictions/lease reviewing, and very light criminal work.
But more importantly, his focus has always been to help with the LGBTQ+ community. As being part of the community himself, he finds it more important than ever that everyone fights for the equality of all Oregonians, and Americans, in pursuing the equal treatment in all areas of the law, privileges and protections that the law should afford us, and to hold those that seek to destroy equality accountable for their actions.

In his free time he enjoys going to the gym, playing sports, cooking and baking, and a huge Marvel/DC fan.
