Over the past 20 years Joe has been working at the intersection of law and business. Joe's experience ranges from basic contract negotation and drafting to complex business litigation. Joe serves small businesses throughout Oregon from sole proprietors generating less than $100,000/annually to businesses with scores of employees and generating well above eight figures. Whether your business needs a velvet touch negotiating the next partnering agreement or an intelligent and firm litigation advocate; Joe will deliver.
While in law school Joe took full advantage of the opportunity to learn as much as he could about legal concepts affecting businesses by taking courses including Federal Taxation, Intellectual Property, Labor Law, Business Organization Law, Management Law, and Negotation. Joe also took as many mock trial courses as his schedule allowed. Those courses came in handy early in Joe's career while working as litigation counsel for two insurance companies. Joe has actual jury trial experience which is a rare skill set that few attorneys have today.
Joe is an Oregonian through and through. Joe grew up in Bend, Oregon. He joined the US Air Force shortly after High School. While in the Air Force he worked as a Minuteman II (Inter Continental Ballistic Missile) professional. Joe continued to serve in the Air Force Reserves while obtaining his undergraduate degree.
When Joe is not serving clients from his Lake Oswego office he can be found spending time with his family. Joe's non professional passions include aviation, road and mountain biking, roller skiing, running, climbing, skiing, yoga and any other athletic pursuit you can think of.
