A tenacious litigator, Steve O’Hagan is dedicated to serving the best interests of his clients through a combination of thorough preparation and quick thinking. His passion for the law comes from his desire to help people through difficult times.
Steve tackles every case with professionalism and the drive to produce the most favorable possible outcome. Meticulous and dedicated, he knows the best tool for a particular job is the one that best helps clients achieve their goals, and he’s equally at home working out settlements as he is participating in trials.
Before making the leap to family law, Steve served as a prosecutor for the Multnomah County District Attorney’s office for ten years. Part of the reason for making the change was his desire represents actual people instead of the county. Steve’s extensive experience in handling complex and difficult matters are critical in evaluating the proper strategy for his clients.
Talking about Steve, managing attorney Colin Amos says, “Steve’s experience as a prosecutor helps make him a sharp negotiator who is exceptionally comfortable in the courtroom. His background provides him with a decisive advantage over opposing attorneys since many family law attorneys do not have much actual trial experience. Clients love his understated confidence, significant experience, and appreciate that they have a true advocate on their side.”
Steve received his bachelor’s degree from Bucknell University in Pennsylvania. He later earned his Juris Doctor from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco.
When he’s not fighting for the rights of his clients, Steve spends as much time as he can with his own family. He loves to surf, play slide guitar, and train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Steve O’Hagan did a fine job for me. Mine was not a simple get it done affair. Lawyer O’Hagan was on point. The quickest e-mail response the best advice and always ready to take on the opposing counsel. I will continue to take advantage of his knowledge in whatever may arise. Thumbs up to the lawyer O’HAGAN.

Steve O’Hagan was the attorney representing me in my divorce case. I have to say that my divorce was unforeseen in my opinion, and I was absolutely crushed spiritually, financially, and physically when my separation/divorce began. I was significantly afraid of the divorce process initially, as most people probably are, regarding many aspects of my case considering the relatively uncommon nature of some of the roadblocks that we encountered along the way.
Mr. O’Hagan gave me/my family such a wonderful feeling of comfort and satisfaction throughout the entire process. In fact, I would say that I barely ever had to be involved other than a few phone conversations and detailed disclosure, etc, otherwise, Mr. O’Hagan did EVERYTHING! As painful as a divorce can be…this was as painless as it gets.
I work a lot and have very little time to deal with things like a divorce, but Mr. O’Hagan’s expertise, diligence, and compassion really made my divorce a somewhat pleasurable experience, though I know how weird that sounds. His professionalism is without reproach and I would recommend him to anyone for representation. Thank you again, Steve, for everything!
