Contact

We welcome contact from potential new clients. Please read all the information on this page before contacting us:

1. Matters we accept

We are two attorneys and we do our own work. We do not run a high volume law practice. Our criteria for accepting or rejecting a new matter varies depending on our workload and the nature of each inquiry on a case-by-case basis.

Please do not assume that we only accept 'high value' matters - that is not the case. We screen new inquiries for clients we enjoy working with, causes we believe in, and matters to which we can devote the required time and resources.

2. Potential client inquiries only

Due to the constraints of running a business, we cannot provide free legal advice or information. The one exception is that we provide free consultations in some potential contingency fee matters (i.e., cases in which we charge a percentage of recovery in lieu of hourly or flat fees).

If you are looking for free employment law information or have just a few questions about employment law, we provide a variety of information on this website. If you are looking for a low cost option to talk with a lawyer, the Oregon State Bar's referral service (503-684-3763) offers initial 30-minute consultations with their panel attorneys for a minimal fee.

3. Please fill out an inquiry form

We require basic information in writing prior to setting telephone or in-person consultations with an attorney. We do not accept unscheduled calls from potential clients. To submit a written inquiry about a new matter, please fill out an inquiry form by clicking on the appropriate button under the 'Intake Forms' portion of this page.

We personally review all inquiries and will let you know whether we might be able to help. We schedule initial consultations by telephone only when it appears we may be able to help in a manner that is economically feasible.

4. Emergencies

We do not typically assist with new matters requiring turnaround times of less than a few days. If you believe you need an attorney immediately or on very short notice, we recommend calling the Oregon State Bar Lawyer Referral Service at 503-684-3763.
