As the oldest law firm in Tualatin, we have witnessed remarkable changes in this city and the suburban practice of law. The new guys in town have become the older guys. But one thing has not changed – our commitment to the people in this community. Just like you, we live here and are ready when you need a lawyer.

Families in Tualatin experience difficulties just like everywhere else. Sometimes separation or divorce is unavoidable. Issues such as child custody, parenting plans, child support, alimony, and property distribution are complicated. We help folks navigate through these problems with an emphasis on equity and fairness, and we always keep in mind the best interests of the children.

An unfortunate truth of everyday life is that people get injured by the actions of others. When it happens, justice dictates that the injured person be compensated. We have helped our clients with claims ranging from wrongful death, to catastrophic injuries, to even dog bites. If you have been injured, we can help.

In these changing economic times, we have seen the workplace become a hostile environment. We have helped clients who have been wrongfully fired from their jobs, clients who have been denied their wages or unemployment benefits, and clients who have been discriminated against and even sexually harassed at work. Now, more than ever, the employee needs an advocate in the workplace. We can help.

Being charged with a crime is frightening for the accused and the family. In our experience, a discrete and honest case assessment, coupled with an independent investigation, is the key to an appropriate resolution. We represent ordinary people charged with felony and misdemeanor crimes in all courts in this state. We offer hope in difficult times.

In our 30 years here in Tualatin, the hairs on our heads have grayed along with everyone else, but with age comes experience. It is no surprise that our estate planning practice has grown along with our probate and will contest cases. We prepare wills and trusts, we plan estates, and we probate cases in all counties in this state. The process of dealing with an aging parent or adult is often a difficult matter. We offer services for guardianship and conservatorship with an emphasis on compassionate planning.

In the end, it comes down to people. Our success is linked to being a resource to the people of this community rather than just another local business. You don’t have to go it alone. If you have a legal problem, we are just a phone call away. We’ve been your neighbor a good many years, and we will continue to be here when you need us.
