Knowledgeable, Understanding and Realistic
Knowledgeable, understanding and realistic; These are the qualities I experienced during a recent consultation. Sarah is more than knowledgeable with the law and willing to discuss all options regarding your circumstance. She does this while being extremely understanding and providing a realistic forecast for resolution, including time and financial investment. If you need representation or a consult regarding your legal rights, contact Sarah.
A Great Help
Before consulting an attorney, we spent 3 months trying to resolve a dispute by ourselves. By the time we sought help we were extremely frustrated and losing sleep.
Based on Yelp reviews we called[, t]hey took some information over the phone and Sarah [Litowich] agreed to talk to us. When we arrived she had already done some research and had a good idea of what laws might have been broken. She listened to us, carefully looked over our documentation, and double checked the figures. Based on that, she showed us what code she believed had been violated and we discussed our options.
She was able to resolve the dispute in a matter of weeks with a couple of well worded letters. She reminded the other party what code had been violated, cited a supporting case for recovering damages, and suggested the other party might also want to pay our attorney fees. She did this with aplomb and a touch of humor, quickly resolving the dispute.
We found Sarah professional and competent. She kept us informed and we wholeheartedly recommend her as an attorney.
Would Recommend and Use Their Office ANYTIME
Sarah and Amy were exceptionally helpful and straightforward through the whole process. The transparency and quick responses were helpful in finding a resolution.
We got amazing advice that wasn't driven by money, but what was best for our case. Sarah answered EVERY question we had with honesty and care. She also provided us with advice that was timely and helpful.
Sarah helps get what is best for everyone involved. She helped us see all sides and presented all the information so we could make informed decisions.
They made a possibly difficult situation bareable. Would recommend and use their office ANYTIME in the future.

Seeking legal counsel is an option most people don't want to turn to. For myself, it was a scary and costly option that I was genuinely hesitant about. My fears and doubt were quickly eased when I hired Sarah [Litowich], however. Not only did Sarah prove knowledgeable and professional throughout our entire dealings, she also showed confidence, civility, credibility and a competitive spirit. I found these characteristics extremely complimentary to her legal craft.
Thank you, Sarah, for making my legal experience "easy." You exceeded my expectations and took care of my situation in a timely manner. I will forever recommend your services!
Grateful for Legal Advice
I am starting a business and I needed support in drafting documents & disclaimers. Sarah confidently helped create these papers in a timely manner. I appreciate having sought out her legal advice. Thank you Sarah.
Sarah helped us enforce an out-of-state custody order. She was very knowledgeable and very helpful! She was prepared to go the extra mile for us and that helped to put us at ease with the situation. We highly recommend Sarah!
Sarah [Litowich] is outstanding in her performance on child custody issues. She was able to assist in getting our child from her state to the child's residing state before it was too late to act. Process went smoothly and quicker than anticipated.
I would recommend her to anyone who needs a family law attorney.
I Entirely Relied on Her
I am a non-resident alien living in New York City, and I got pulled over by a police officer in Oregon while on vacation. I was given a citation for reckless driving and a speeding ticket.
Mrs. Sarah [Litowich] accepted to represent me in this double case. Although I should have returned to Oregon at some point, she worked it out so I could stay in NYC for the whole procedure. She expressly negotiated a diversion with the State of Oregon regarding the reckless driving misdemeanor and, eventually, she argued successfully that paying a speeding ticket would have been punishing me twice. I ended up serving only 8 hours of community service and taking an online driving course.
Due to my foreigner status, she gathered, as a courtesy, information on the immigration consequences I could have faced if I had been convicted. Mrs. [Litowich] was always reachable for any questions, and she proved herself to be very knowledgeable, professional, and efficient.
I am from Michigan and I was visiting friends in Oregon, on vacation. Ms. [Litowich] represented me when I received a speeding ticket and the case was eventually dismissed. I never had to come back to Oregon for anything. Would recommend highly without any reservation!
Excellent Advice and Professionalism
I consulted with Sarah [Litowich] to potentially defend me for a traffic violation. She and I spoke… about the options that I had available. Her explanation and advice was exceptionally clear and helpful. I decided to defend myself which was an excellent decision. I have a lot of respect for a lawyer such as Sarah who shares professional knowledge for the benefit of the client without the pressure of expecting that hiring the lawyer must be the outcome. She acted professionally and in my best interests.
Sarah helped us during a very difficult and complicated situation involving our adopted children. She is intelligent, ethical and full of integrity.
Sarah represented me in a case against DHS. She is competent, knowledgeable, and compassionate. The case was dismissed against me because of the excellent work/defense. She is highly recommended.
Excellent, Ethical & Determined
I recently retained Sarah Litowich for a difficult custody issue. I was nervous, as I've never had to retain a lawyer for anything before. Sarah explained everything to me in a way that I could understand, and worked very hard on my behalf. She is thorough, always had my best interests in mind. She went above and beyond for me, and I would absolutely recommend Sarah Litowich to anyone who needs legal assistance.
Mrs. Litowich is a no-nonsense attorney. She was straightforward with me about every aspect of my case, good or bad. Her attitude in the court room is ferocious, and she never let opposing attorneys get away with snide comments on record (little feel-good victories). If Mrs. Litowich were still in the area, I would hire her again if the need arose. I would definitely recommend her to anyone seeking a divorce or child custody/support attorney.
Divorce, Child Custody
Thank you so much for all you did for me! You were always so well-prepared, professional and timely with everything! You explained everything logically while also listening to my emotional outpouring! Thank you so very much!
Divorce is already a stressful ordeal and the last thing anyone wants in this situation is more stress. Luckily, Sarah and Amy made the process as quick and simple as possible. Sarah was very attentive and understanding and made sure I understood the process in its entirety as well as explaining additional potential outcomes and variables.
Amy was always super quick to respond to emails, extremely patient and understanding, and kept me appraised of where I was in the process at all times. For someone like me, this was extremely helpful.
I also greatly appreciated the multiple options available for submitting documents, signatures, and even payments. I don’t always have time to meet face to face or drive around dropping off paperwork and such so the electronic communication and document options were a lifesaver.
I highly recommend Sarah and her team to anyone who finds themselves in this situation!
This was a custody case where the father left the kids in our care and never came back for them and hasn't provided any support for 2 years. This case was unusual because the mother lives in the Philippines and wouldn't give us her address for a long time and the father hid from everyone for about 9 months to keep from having to support his children. We finally were able to get both their address after a long wait and she was able to get them served. We finally got custody by default. Sarah handle this in a professional manner. One nice thing though, she was able to handle our case with email and secure esignatures, which means we could review and sign documents easily and conveniently. We would recommend Sarah to handle a child custody case.
Compassionate Family Lawyer
Sarah worked hard to make clear expectations for us and for the case. She explained what might happen in each situation and how the law would affect the outcome. She helped provide a clear understanding of the best possible outcome in the case and continually re-focused us on the end goal, not the fleeting emotional toll of the case.
Keeping us up to date on the case and helping craft strategies for the desired outcome, Sarah was a hard-working, clear-headed voice of reason. She listened with compassion to the details of the case free of judgement. When asked to respect our financial resources she responded with options that were less costly while still providing the necessary direction for the case.
If you are looking for a compassionate, competent and caring family lawyer I would highly recommend Sarah Litowich.
The Very Best
Ms Litowich represented me in a very high conflict divorce and custody case. I just cannot say enough great things about her. She is professional, intelligent, full of integrity and morals, which is soooo rare and hard to find in an attorney. She takes family law very seriously, and really goes above and beyond to make sure that you and your family are taken care of in every aspect. She listens, and you do get results. Judges and other court staff respect her, which can be tricky for a female attorney, since the court of law is still very much a "man's world". I was fighting for the most important thing in my entire life, my child, and Sarah understood the high stakes. She REALLY cares about the best interest of the child. She is easy to contact and communicate with, and her paralegal, Amy, is on the ball and extremely kind and pleasant to deal with. Don't mess around hiring anyone else, when the stakes are as high as custody/adoption/family issues, you really don't want to waste time and money with anyone who isn't the very best. Thank you so much, Sarah. You are my attorney for life, and me & my daughter can never thank you enough.
Professional, Honest, Go Getter!
In my professional dealings with Mrs. Litowich, I found her to be a very straight forward and honest individual; that was willing not only to fight for what was right, but could be an open ear to listen to my frustration about my case and bring a calming understanding of "Why" things were going the way they were. She and her staff, always demonstrated the utmost professionalism, courtesy, and willingness to go the extra mile; even to be available on vacation, should an emergency take place.
I can't begin to say enough about Mrs. Litowich, as a father, she fought hard for the desire of my child. As a veteran, she stood her ground against the opposition to protect my privacy.
My lawyer was very supportive and extremely helpful. I have absolutely no complaints. If I need an attorney again, I would definitely use Sarah again.
I am again posting this may be different verbiage but trying again since the first one didn’t take . All I can say about Sarah is she is absolutely amazing and wonderful and I get to see my babies soon after eight long months of being the hidden step mom and my husband gets his girls longer ! It’s so incredible how she fought and how she knew the case without being in our shoes ! She was and is the answer to our prayers ! Sarah felt worried of our case but come court date she was on fire ! This women deserve praise on praise ! She made our family whole again after 8 months definitely not her fault, but she helped us succeed! I wrote one review a lot differently but don’t know if it posted but here is another 5 stars ! She is our knight in shining armor our light at the end of the tunnel ! We love Sarah !

Can't Thank Them Enough
Katherine and Zachary helped me through the most difficult time in my life. They were willing to listen to me which I hadnt really experienced with 4 previous attorneys. Ive heard great things about Sarah alsoI cant thank them enough for the work they put in and the comfort and hope they provided. I was referred by a friend and now I highly recommend this firm to anyone going through the nasty and disgusting family law/custody procedures!!!
Responsive to All of My Concerns and Questions
Zach represented me during a difficult divorce. Zach was very responsive to all of my concerns and questions. He was supportive and gave me straight forward answers and advice... The divorce was complicated at times and involved children.. By the end of this long emotional process I felt very comfortable and confident with the outcome! I would highly recommend Litowich Law.

Strong and Dependable Lawyer
They are very detailed and really know what they are doing. Katherine was a very strong and dependable lawyer. She knew exactly how to help me with my situation. She was very good at explaining to me how things worked legally but how we can make things work to my best interests. She knew exactly what to say when it came to talking to the other parties in the situation. Michael was also helpful when it came to explaining things. He got back to me very quickly and kept things very organized and straight forward. I never felt lost or out of the loop with anything that happened during my case.

Forth-right, Honest and Direct
My life is essentially all hard times, recently I was put through a family dispute that was not going to end in my favor on any level and I knew it. Zach at Litowich Law mitigated and helped me control the situation until a justifiably suitable solution was presented and adhered to. More-so my interactions with him felt human and compassionate where-as other attorneys approached with the same dilemma were callous and only talked to me for the initial $300ish consultation fee without any intention of taking the case. Zachary is respectful of both of our time and I have not seen any strange or outrageous fees on the bills like from other attorneys. Furthermore he was willing to work within my budget where-as other attorneys essentially had me pay them to tell me that I can't afford them... Forth-right, honest and direct, Zachary seems like a good guy in a field where they are hard to find. If I'm ever in need of a lane county family attorney again, I'll start my search with Litowich Law.

Thank You to This Team for Making Our Family Complete
Katherine is the most passionate, understanding, and best lawyer I’ve worked with. When I called her to see if she’d take my case, she made me feel so calm and truly explained everything to me and my family and reassured us she could get the job done. I loved working with her, I only wish it wasn’t during Covid so we could have met up more times than in court. Even over the phone, it was a very professional experience. Ines and Amy were wonderful as well. Thank you to this team for making our family complete. I could not have asked for a better lawyer. We are grateful for their hard work and dedication to our case.
