About the Lawyers
F.G. (Jamie) Troy II
Starting in 1998, Jamie has spent his days representing parents, children, grandparents, and other parties in just about every aspect of juvenile law imaginable, including juvenile delinquency, juvenile dependency, and termination of parental rights cases in state and tribal court. He also enjoys representing foster parents and relatives in administrative disputes with the Department of Human Services (DHS). He brings empathy and patience to his practice and to his interactions with his clients. Inside the courtroom, Jamie is a tenacious advocate, fighting to ensure his clients’ rights are recognized and their goals achieved.
In addition to juvenile law, Jamie’s practice focuses on family law and related actions. Divorce and domestic partnership dissolutions, custody disputes including those involving third-parties, child support, stalking orders, Family Abuse Prevention Act (FAPA) restraining orders, and adoptions comprise the bulk of Jamie’s family law practice. He has litigated dozens of family law trials and contested hearings throughout Multnomah, Clackamas, and Washington Counties and offers services throughout the state.
Due to his experience, success, and wit, Jamie is frequently called upon to train other attorneys and caseworkers in various aspects of juvenile law, from basic trainings on the practice to highly specialized presentations on litigating shaken-baby cases. He also authored a chapter in the Oregon State Bar’s 2007 compendium, Juvenile Law.
Jamie grew up in Virginia where he received his undergraduate degree from The College of William & Mary before relocating to Oregon to pursue his law degree from Lewis & Clark Law School.
In addition to his law practice, Jamie has numerous outside interests and activities. He is a member of the Citizen Review Committee, a body appointed by the Portland City Council to oversee the Portland Police Bureau. He sings Tenor with the Oregon Repertory Singers. He serves on the boards of the Bill & Ann Shepherd Legal Scholarship Fund for LGBTQ young attorneys and their allies as well as the Gus J. Solomon Inn of Court promoting professionalism in the legal community. He is an avid marathoner and a pace leader for the Portland Marathon Training Clinic.
