Next, through every step of the litigation process, we work closely with you to make sure that the legal action is an integral of your personal recovery. Let us help.
We can also help determine your eligibility for help from the Oregon Crime Victims’ Assistance or Crime Victims’ Compensation programs. Regardless of the specific facts of your case, you’ll be able to count on us to handle your situation with sensitivity and skill. Our attorneys are flexible with their appointments and will make the necessary arrangements to meet with you in Portland or elsewhere to discuss your case.
