BETH CRAWFORD, Attorney
Beth has been practicing family law in Corvallis since 2008 with a focus on high-conflict cases. In 2021, she began offering family law mediation services.
Beth is both a skilled advocate and a compassionate professional whose litigation practice focuses on issues related to people and their families. She understands that matters involving the family (such as divorce, custody of children, parenting time, and property division) can be emotionally challenging. Beth is committed to helping her clients understand both their rights and their responsibilities. She listens to each client’s goals and then works with the client to establish a plan to achieve the best outcome for her clients. She works toward amicable settlement whenever possible, but has a solid litigation track record if settlement is not possible.
Beth graduated magna cum laude from Wake Forest University and went on to earn a Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary. She came to Corvallis in 2001 as co-director of the OSU United Campus Ministry at Westminster House. While there, she gained experience in the areas of counseling and group facilitation. She also taught at OSU as an adjunct faculty member in the Women Studies and Academic Learning Services departments. Those experiences inform Beth’s compassionate approach to her clients and her tough representation for her clients. These experiences directly translate to her mediation practice and allow her to more effectively help clients come to an agreement.
Beth obtained her law degree from the University of Oregon in 2008. During law school, she participated in the school’s Domestic Violence Clinic where she represented domestic violence victims in restraining order hearings. She also obtained legal research and writing experience as a law clerk providing civil litigation support at a Eugene law firm. In addition, Beth served throughout law school on the Women’s Law Forum Board of Directors where she actively promoted the fair treatment and equality of women in society. Since beginning her legal career, Beth has helped hundreds of clients navigate the legal system.
