Dedicated attorneys, paralegals and staff work together to achieve the goals of our clients and the firm. We are always looking for enthusiastic, motivated, and talented individuals ready to advance our clients’ objectives and enhance our reputation as one of Oregon’s “Most Admired Professional Firms” (according to the Portland Business Journal’s survey results of CEOs throughout the region).

An Environment of Support

Our supportive and collegial culture sets us apart from other Northwest law firms. We provide a working environment for both professionals and support staff that is hospitable and personally engaging. We maintain high standards of courtesy and respect, promote humor and camaraderie, and encourage a sense of community within the organization. We offer the opportunity to pursue a challenging legal career that is reasonably balanced with outside personal, family, and community interests. To help achieve this balance, we make part-time opportunities available to all professionals, including both partners and non-partners.

Formal and informal social events are regular occurrences at the firm. We regularly celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and employee arrivals and farewells with beverages, hors d’oeuvres, conversation, and laughter. We also host annual events where we bring together people from all areas of the firm such as holiday dinners, bowling tournaments and billiards tournaments. Friday Happy Hour and getting-acquainted lunches for new associates help strengthen communication and cohesiveness among professionals and staff of all levels. We place a high value on each individual’s contributions to the firm’s success.
