About Stahancyk, Kent & Hook

Founded in 1986 with a dedicated focus on providing clients exceptional legal services and outstanding customer service, SKH will focus on your needs – whether you seek help with a divorce, custody, modification, will, trust or any other matter related to family law. We look for the most positive way for you to find resolution to any matters you have. For us, clients come first.


Our company motto is “Creative Solutions in Difficult Times.” Bend Managing Shareholder Joel Kent elaborates, “We give our clients a different perspective on a problem, and perhaps a solution, that they hadn’t thought of before.” Our focus on thinking differently does not stop at the doors to our attorneys’ offices; in order to keep improving, we consistently look at what we do and ask how it could be done better, just like we do for our clients. Our shareholders are: Jody L. Stahancyk, Senior Shareholder and President; Joel J. Kent and Laurel P. Hook, both Managing Shareholders; and Bradford F. Miller, Arthur K. Saito, Michelle L. Prosser, Anna C. Friedhoff, Kyle J. Piro, and Anne H. Ajayi.


We have six offices spread across Oregon and Southwest Washington to serve the family law and estate planning needs of those communities.

Our largest office, located in Portland, is housed just south of PSU in Duniway Plaza, a mid-century office structure with a classic theme.

Founded in 1998, our Bend office has grown to be the largest Family Law practice in Central Oregon. Under the guidance of managing shareholder Joel Kent, our Bend office has flourished by prioritizing client services and community involvement.
