Ms. Green focuses her practice on family law matters which include cases from divorce, custody, and nonparental custody cases to child support and adoption cases. She began practicing law while attending Lewis and Clark Law School working as a legal assistant at St. Andrew’s Legal Clinic, a non-profit family law organization in the Portland metro area serving low-income clients with family law matters.
Ms. Green has always been dedicated to helping others in their time of need. She brings both empathy and real-world advice to clients while successfully delivering results. Tanya has extensive experience litigating family law matters in various counties including Clark, Cowlitz, Skamania, Wahkiakum, and Pacific counties. She has taken dozens of cases to trial, negotiated many divorces, and obtained great results for countless clients in her years of practice in Washington. Tanya’s prior volunteer services with the Domestic Violence Coordinator’s Office and the National Crime Victims’ Law Institute during law school helped her to navigate the intricacies of the criminal justice system as it intersects with real-world family law problems.
In her spare time, Tanya enjoys exploring the beautiful waterfall trails of the Pacific Northwest and spending time with her family.

Ms. Green is beyond patient and understanding. She truly believes in the client, not just the case. I have been with her for going on 3 years and highly recommend her to anyone needing family law representation or help in the Vancouver area. She is prompt, reliable, treats her clients and others with respect, and is very organized.
Ms. Green is outstanding in her service and genuine and kind to boot! If I could rate her 10 stars I would. My experience with Ms. Green has been exceptional. From the very first introduction, she is extremely knowledgeable and intuitive. She answered all my questions with care and goes above and beyond to assist achieving the goals you have and really listens, which is extremely rare in my experience before Ms. Green. Ms. Green has helped our family with a difficult divorce matter that has been ongoing for over a year and only now has had some progress because Ms. Green has gotten involved. Truly! She has made it clear that she wants to help the best for our family and really makes us feel like a priority, that she is invested and cares about the result. Every response and action Ms. Green given has helped move my case upward and forward. Ms. Green helped my children’s voices be heard, which is invaluable. After a year long battle with my ex- I felt lost and confused and helpless in my divorce and parenting matter and Ms. Green has been so helpful with each step of the process that I finally feel like I have legs to stand on again, when before her assistance I did not. If you are in need of a family attorney, I highly recommend Ms. Green and truly believe you will not find better knowledgeable care and assistance.
