Christopher J. Kane

Attorney at Law

We want to personally thank you for stopping in and looking into our firm for your personal bankruptcy attorney in Portland.

I am an Oregon native. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Economics from Portland State University in 1991. I then took my Juris Doctor degree from the Northwestern School of Law at Lewis & Clark College in 1994. I entered the Oregon State Bar in 1995 and have been licensed to practice law since that time.

From 2001 to 2005, I was an associate attorney with Snyder & Associates, a well-established and prominent firm specializing in consumer and personal bankruptcy in Portland. It was in 2005 that I struck out on my own. I opened my own practice in Northeast Portland. Ever since, I have focused my time and energy in the legal profession on helping consumers, small businesses and individuals with the bankruptcy process. It has been my pleasure to see each of my clients move forward, take care of their debts, and begin a fresh, new financial life.

My work in the bankruptcy field in Portland has been featured on major media network affiliates, including CBS, ABC, CNBC, and Fox. I have been in the top three Portland bankruptcy attorneys many different times, and I regularly donate my time and expertise to non-profits in and around Portland.

"I am proud to represent the people of my community. Tell me how I can help you achieve your goals."

I have long been on the side of the ‘little guy’ when it comes to facing off against mounting debt and personal financial crisis. It is the knowledge of helping someone restart their lives that drives my professional career and satisfaction. I am well known for my representation of individuals and small businesses in both state and federal courts. I have worked with clients in Social Security disability, landlord/tenant relations, employment, consumer protection, estate, planning, business formation, consulting, and, of course, small business and personal bankruptcy in Portland.

Since my time with Snyder & Associates in 2001, my primary focus is on personal bankruptcy law, helping individuals and small businesses find debt relief and practical solutions. Additionally, I work in the areas of business law, estate planning and real estate investment transactions.

Each of my clients receives the individualized approach and professionalism they deserve when filing for business or personal bankruptcy in Oregon. I promise to give each client the necessary time and attention to their case they need and deserve. I listen, explain and work to help you reach financial independence from crushing debt that necessitates Portland bankruptcy action.

If you are considering or wondering if bankruptcy is right for your situation, I am available for individuals and businesses that live in Oregon. Our bankruptcy firm can now interview you via Zoom and electronically file your bankruptcy documentation. That means no driving time and no waiting in an office. I offer a free initial consultation with anyone who feels bankruptcy may be the solution. In the rare instance I am not the attorney you need, I will take the time to help you find the appropriate attorney you need and deserve.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain with a simple phone call. I am here to help.
