An experienced, versatile attorney, Michael D. Hess is dedicated to achieving results for his clients. Effective and efficient, he’s a strong advocate and valuable member of the Goldberg Jones family in Portland.
Meticulous and proactive, Michael delivers innovative legal solutions in his quest to help those he represents. Practicing since 2008, he has worked in multiple areas, though always maintaining an active interest in family law, his primary focus since 2013.
An excellent communicator, Michael distills complicated legal jargon into simple, straightforward language. He works with his clients, opposing counsel, and other involved parties to achieve optimal results, though when the situation calls for it, he’s also a fierce litigator, equally adept in the courtroom as in negotiations.
Talking about Michael, managing attorney Colin Amos says, “Michael is incisive and thorough, with a deep compassion for his clients. He truly understands how difficult this time can be for many people, but he puts them at ease and they immediately know they’re in good hands.”
When he’s not fighting for the rights of the husbands and fathers of the Portland area, Michael officiates high school football games and explores the ample outdoor opportunities the Northwest offers with his wife and three children.
