Our Firm

MillerAsen, now Portland’s premier family law firm, was previously known as two separate firms: Miller Law & Mediation and MittelAsen, LLC. Miller Law & Mediation was founded by Catherine Miller in 2010. Since its inception, it has expanded in size and practice groups by welcoming Clarke Hambley, of the Law Office of Clarke Hambley, Esq. (2014) and Alex Chaiken, of HunterChaiken, LLC (2020). Most recently, Miller Law & Mediation joined forces with MittelAsen’s experienced team, including Michael Asen, Diane Dusini, Susan Bixby, and Whitney Lallas. Together, MillerAsen’s team of experienced lawyers primarily focus on divorce, family law, estate planning, trusts and estates, probate, and mediation.

Our team understands that transitions in a family can cause extreme stress irrespective of the reason. We also know that disputes between individuals are often uniquely contentious and complex. However, when handled strategically, practical settlements that meet the needs of the parties and their loved ones can bring a welcome resolution. Whether in a familial or business setting, we implement a team strategy to seek a fair resolution, often bringing the expertise of others, such as accounting and financial experts, appraisers, counselor, and investigators, to help determine the best possible resolution.

We listen to your concerns about the legal process, understand your objectives, answer your question, strategize as to settlement alternatives, and communicate next steps. We discuss with you your legal rights and how they relate to the specific facts of your case. We guide you toward decisions that serve not only your short-term legal interests, but also your long-term wellbeing.
