Dylan M. Cernitz

Patience and diligence are Dylan's keys to conflict management and helping his clients bring order to a sometimes chaotic and overwhelming situation. A former partner with a small firm, he focused on family law because he wanted to help clients make the right choices in difficult times. There are many decisions facing a client going through a divorce, custody or support modification. Armed with a background in civil litigation, Dylan is ideally suited to navigate stressful times and find creative and effective resolutions. Because of his experience in this area, Dylan continues to enjoy and excel in resolving complex property division and large asset cases.

When he's not working, you might find Dylan on his family's farm, or cheering from the sidelines of his son's sporting events. He has a fine appreciation for craft beers and preparing gourmet meals to accompany them. If he could live anywhere in the world, he would pick Portland.
