Experience
Taylor Murdoch focuses his practice on family law litigation. He has helped clients from the beginning to the end of complex family law and civil litigation matters, including divorce, custody disputes, modification of support, move-away cases, and restraining and protective orders.

Prior to joining Buckley Law, Taylor Murdoch practiced family law at Hohbach Law Firm in Lake Oswego. Before coming to Lake Oswego, he practiced at a firm in Springfield, Oregon where he was a city prosecutor for the cities of Eugene and Springfield and where he managed his own family law practice. During law school, he clerked in the Attorney General’s office of the Oregon Department of Justice, and prosecuted criminal cases as a court-certified law student. Before law school, he spent a year volunteering in New Orleans at a law office that represents indigent clients charged with capital crimes.

When not at work, Taylor Murdoch enjoys spending time with his wife and young children, supporting the Portland Timbers and the U.S. national soccer teams, reading, and volunteering with his church and in the Lake Oswego community.
