R B. (San Fransisco, CA) January 3, 2018:
I also contacted Joanne through a free
service. I had missed a phone hearing and wasn't sure if I needed the
services of an attorney. Joanne took the time to go over my situation thoroughly and promptly. I was extremely impressed in her knowledge and
honesty. She was detailed in her emails and obviously put a
considerable amount of thought into my situation to recommend the best
course of action. She will be the first attorney that I will recommend
for any family law matters.
Gwen V. (Torrance California) April 18, 2017: I contacted Joanne through a free service
and she went out of her way to be very thorough and explained everything
to me. I was so amazed that she would take the time to read my story
and respond to every question and even offer a referral since she was
out of my area. Very friendly and put my mind to ease regarding my
legal problem. Would highly recommend!
: Portland, OR May 14, 2015:
I have just received an e-mail from Miss Reisman having to do with an
aggressive telephone contact with a collection agency on a credit card
debt I am unable to pay. At 80 years of age and in remission with two
cancers, I am not exactly what you would call a prime candidate for
re-entry into any job market. So it's clear, what with only SS, that
I'm unable, but would gladly be able absent health and age problems, to
fulfill my obligation to pay off the debt. Miss Reisman seemed optimistic that a small trailer that I live in --
which is rightfully an efficiency apartment and hardly "recreational" --
might be exempt from being taken. Just from the content of Miss
Reisman's e-mail alone I now rest easier since I really don't know how
long I will remain in remission. Unfortunately, my remission is with
two cancers, one, I suspect, from too much radiation. Don't have me gush over the fact that someone of Miss Reisman's stature has taken the time to comfort someone less fortunate!
I was very fortunate to stumble
across Joanne Reisman with Portland Legal Services. I needed
assistance with an Oregon matter, but was out of state at the time.
Luckily for me I found someone who was very trustworthy and dependable
and who went out of her way to talk to me, understand the situation, and
then assist me with ensuring the documentation I needed was completed.
Thanks for your assistance. Nikki
Guardian Angel! I cant recommend
Joanne Reisman enough, she saved my life! I went through some really
tough legal situations this year and she was there for me every step of
the way - from preparing, to making informed decisions, to standing next
to me (with the help of a cane because she had hurt her back and could
barely walk!) at court. She always called to check on me, returned my
calls and emails promptly - really cared about ME and the process I was
going through. If you need help this is your attorney! Shes tough,
smart, loving, and straight up!
We were really upset about having
to file Bankruptcy and had worked hard to avoid it. After going in to
meet with Joanne Reisman at Portland Legal Services, we felt so much
more at peace with the idea and actually saw a way to get through it.
Joanne sat with us and discussed the reality of our situation, gave us
educated and solid advice, and NEVER made us feel bad about it. Joanne
has an extremely detailed understanding of the most current Bankruptcy
and Real Estate laws, and a ton of experience in both areas. For us,
filing Bankruptcy was a personal disaster and very scary. Joanne calmly
guided us through the many different parts of what was to become an
extremely successful Bankruptcy. She worked evening hours when needed
and made sure we didn't miss a single deadline or detail. Oddly,
Bankruptcy was one of the best decisions we've made in recent years and
without Joanne, I can only imagine the nightmare it could have been.
Thank you Joanne!

If you are in an accident, call
an attorney right away. I can recommend this attorney for the timely
advice she gave me immediately. And she dealt with the insurance
company, saving me a lot of stress, and certainly got me a better
settlement than I could have ever hoped for on my own.
A Google User reviewed 7 months ago Overall 3 / 3: Needed a will prepared quickly as well as advice on estate planning.
Joanne Reisman gave 5-star service at very reasonable legal rates.
