Downtown Portland, OR has a rich history. Long before Downtown Portland existed, it was home to indigenous villages of many different tribes. Unfortunately, the government forcibly removed the tribes through the Indian Removal Act and the Oregon Donation Land Act. It replaced them with white settlers who began to build Downtown Portland as we know it today.
In the early 19th century, Portland became home to the fur trade of the Pacific Northwest. Since Downtown Portland sits on the Willamette River, it developed into a port city. Portland housed sailors, saloons, boarding houses, and gambling dens. The Old Portland Underground moved goods from the ports to businesses Downtown. You can still tour these tunnels today.
In the late 20th century, Downtown Portland grew with the development of the Tom McCall Waterfront Park, Pioneer Courthouse Square, and the MAX Light Rail. Today, many Oregonians flock to Downtown Portland to live, shop, and dine.
We are located Downtown on SW Main Street, just one block from the waterfront. In order to get to our law office located in Portland, OR from Downtown Portland, follow these directions:

When we first talk to clients, many of them are worried that they can’t afford a lawyer. Luckily, most personal injury lawyers in Multnomah County charge a reasonable contingency fee.
A contingency fee is when a lawyer takes a percentage of the final settlement or verdict at the end of a personal injury case. Instead of paying the lawyer by the hour or as the case progresses, they are paid from your financial recovery.
This is a beneficial fee arrangement because if the lawyer loses the case, you don’t need to pay anything. Plus, your lawyer will always work hard because if they don’t, they don’t get paid.
A statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit after an accident. If you don’t file your lawsuit in time, it will be dismissed. That means you lose your right to seek damages.
Most Oregon personal injury cases have a two-year statute of limitations from the date of the accident. In a wrongful death case, you have three years to file your lawsuit. However, you shouldn’t wait until the deadline to file. The sooner you file the lawsuit, the sooner you will get paid.
