Elisabeth Cha

Divorce & Family Law Attorney

BA Writing-Intensive English, Marquette University
JD University of Wisconsin Law School

A passionate, enthusiastic defender of those she represents, Elisabeth Cha is a dedicated, effective family law attorney. She’s an important member of the Goldberg Jones team in Portland, and a valuable resource for her clients.

Entering the legal field, Elisabeth didn’t always target this practice area.

I came into family law by accident,” she says. “But I’ve found that it really resonates with my passion to help people navigate the legal system, which was why I went to law school in the first place.

She continues, “Most people have either personally gone through or known someone who has gone through a divorce or custody matter. Regardless of where a person is in life, dealing with family law issues is difficult for everyone. So my goal is to help my clients understand the law and how it applies to their specific situations.

If I can get them a result he or she is comfortable with and they understand how we got there, then I’ve been successful in my role.”

Elisabeth earned her bachelor’s degree in writing-intensive English from Marquette University, graduating cum laude. From there she went on to study at the University of Wisconsin Law School, where she earned her Juris Doctor.

When not fighting for the rights of her clients, Elisabeth spends most of her time with her husband and their four dogs. They enjoy the natural amenities Oregon and the Pacific Northwest have to offer, including hikes, local vineyards and orchards, and out-of-the-way gems.

Client Reviews

I can't recommend Elisabeth Cha and Goldberg Jones enough. The old saying you get what you pay for is true. After reaching out to a more affordable attorney first, who suggested I accept my ex's offer I contacted GJ for a second opinion.

During a consultation they recommended I try mediation. That based on my situation and since I wasn't requesting anything unreasonable I should save myself some money and try to negotiate a settlement on my own. I think that speaks volumes right there.

But after trying to negotiate with an unreasonable ex I contacted GJ again and was assigned Elisabeth Cha, who was amazing and managed to get me more parenting time than I thought was possible. The only thing I regret was not calling them sooner.

I had the luck of Elisabeth handling my case. She was wonderful and was easy to work with. I’m grateful and would recommend her for anyone dealing with these issues. Thank you again.

Elisabeth Cha did an AMAZING job with my divorce case. I thought I had a “Simple Divorce” and it turned out to be a two year nightmare. She was good explaining the process and terminology of a divorce.

She was very responsive to my e-mails and was always willing to investigate things if she didn’t have an answer for my questions. Her listening skills are great. I never had issues getting a hold of her if I needed immediate assistance, this is something that not all attorneys do.

When it came to my hearings she was always prepared and was great at presenting my case to the Judge. A divorce is a very stressful situation to go through specially if there are children involved, I am grateful that I had a great attorney guiding me through this process.
