Myah Kehoe is a true Oregonian at heart. After graduating from college at the University of California at Santa Cruz, Ms. Kehoe moved up to Oregon and began law school at Willamette University in Salem. Ms. Kehoe now lives in the Portland area with her husband and cannot imagine living anywhere else.
Prior to and during law school, Ms. Kehoe worked for various law practices. Throughout this work, she was afforded many opportunities to draft pleadings, including an appellate brief. During her last year of law school, Ms. Kehoe also worked for Willamette University’s Clinical Law Program, in which she tried real custody cases and argued successfully at the Court of Appeals for the State of Oregon.
Following law school, Ms. Kehoe worked at Multnomah County Courthouse for a year and a half. During the first year, she was a Family Law Facilitator and Clerk. This position allowed Ms. Kehoe to help unrepresented litigants prepare and file their own pleadings and advise them on court procedures. Her last six months working at the courthouse, she was promoted to the title of Judicial Clerk and worked in the courtroom with all ten of the family law judges in Multnomah County.
In January 2009, Ms. Kehoe opened the doors to her law firm and has been running a successful family law practice since. While the firm primarily focuses on full representation, it also offers expanded services such as collaborative law, mediation, document review and pro se assistance (for those who are unable to hire an attorney for full representation).
