Joel Overlund, Bend Family Law Mediator and Divorce Attorney

Non Hostile Family Law recognizes that the family continues long after the end of the marriage.

Joel Overlund, Attorney Mediator, is an experienced divorce lawyer with 30+ years of family law practice, offering non-hostile legal services, including family law mediation, direct representation, flat fee limited services, and collaborative law. He advocates for fair and efficient results to avoid the high financial and emotional costs of family law litigation.

This practice of law strictly deviates from the traditional litigation process providing parties the option to avoid the strenuous emotional and monetary cost of going to court. Joel provides a compassionate, quick and efficient way to separate without destroying the children or the parties in the process.

Lillian Quinn, founder of Non-Hostile Family Law, has retired and is no longer practicing law. She is thankful to all her former clients and the Bend legal community for supporting her over the years.


Joel is a divorce lawyer working with families who understand that divorce is not the end to the family; it is the reorganization of the family. He is experienced with different types of parenting plans and the establishment of appropriate child support orders. The focus of a successful parenting plan puts the children’s needs first and provides parents with the opportunity to parent.


As an experienced Bend lawyer, Joel provides a non hostile approach for people who decide to separate after 20, 30, even 50 years together. Avoiding family law litigation (fighting it out at trial) is their primary focus so parties can part with a fair division of assets and in a positive, loving manner, especially after having so many years together.
