Most Oregon lawyers do their best for their clients.  Sometimes their best is not very good.  Sometimes, they or their staff make costly mistakes.  Occasionally, attorneys hurt clients intentionally because they put themselves first or are going through personal problems.

Below, I list the most common claims against Oregon Attorneys and key issues affecting those claims.  They are linked to more detailed descriptions.  Please do not rely on these general guidelines because every “rule” has exceptions, and everyone’s situation differs.
