Our Practice

Defense of Professional License Complaints

When a licensed professional finds themselves defending a claim against their license, we have the expertise and experience to successfully defend those claims.

Medical Negligence

When avoidable accidents by medical professionals harm a patient, it is important to seek the help of a skilled Oregon lawyer as soon as possible. We are here to navigate the legal process for you.

Person Injury and Wrongful Death

Injuries are often due to another person’s negligence. We can help you recover the compensation for your injuries that you are due. We have recovered millions of dollars for injured clients.

Wrongful Termination and Unemployment Benefit Claims

We have the skill and experience to help private and public employees at all levels of employment, from large employer to start-up, including appeals from denials of unemployment benefit claims.

Student Civil Rights in School Discipline Charges

Schools can have entire offices dedicated to investigating, adjudicating, and determining punishment for campus sexual misconduct allegations, which amount to a complete judicial system solely for the prosecution of students, with consequences. This kind of black mark on a student record can be the kiss of death when later looking for a job.

Nursing Home Negligence & Elder Abuse

When an elderly or vulnerable person suffers physical or financial injury, the warning signs are not always obvious.  We have the expertise to help you determine what went wrong, and who may legally be responsible.
