Personal Injury Attorney with PROVEN RESULTS
A judge showed me the list of top Multnomah County auto accident verdicts. According to this list, two of the top ten verdicts are car accident cases that I tried to a jury. I have two of the top 4 Multnomah County auto accident jury verdicts since 2014.
Some of these trials and verdicts were reported on by the Portland media:
Bicyclist hit by test driver
Cyclist vs. New Seasons
Cyclist sues after Uber, private insurance fail to cover crash

Hire an attorney who is also a cyclist. I am a former road and cyclocross racer and current bicycle commuter. I raced for the Presto Velo team, which is now the BicycleAttorney.com cycling team and I am their main cash sponsor.
Hire an Oregon motorcycle accident attorney who rides. I have ridden street, track, motocross, and off road. I have ridden thousands of miles on my street bike and know the dangers that motorcyclists face every time they get on a bike. In my experience, most motorcycle riders are very safe and cautious, as our life is on the line if we are not.
I hold a United States Coast Guard Captain's 100 Ton License and have fished both commercially and for sport. I am very familiar with the rules of the road for boating and boating laws that apply to boating accidents. Boating accidents can be harder to figure out, but my 40 years on the water and my professional training as a captain give me a leg up over most lawyers.
Expert personal injury attorney when it comes to pedestrians hit by cars while walking or crossing streets in or not in a crosswalk. Even if you were not in a crosswalk when you were hit by a car as a pedestrian, in Oregon, there is an implied crosswalk at every corner with a stop sign.
