Joel Christiansen

Advising employees, professionals, and executives on employment contracts, international work visas, and employee rights cases. Member of the Oregon State Bar, working fully remote on matters statewide.

"Employment law" spans contract law, tort law, and a variety of state and federal laws, rules, and regulations. As society changes, so do the laws governing employee rights.

We stay well-informed in all the laws related to employment to promote our clients' interests in the workplace. We help employees level the playing field.

We focus on quality work product and creative, practical solutions. We enjoy representing thoughtful and hard-working clients. We have a good reputation (Super Lawyers recognition, etc.). Zealous ethics and a sense of humor round out our aspirations as attorneys.

We're always open to hourly or flat fee consultations on employment law issues. This includes employment contract reviews and other non-litigated matters. We also do litigation and contingency fee work (i.e., we don't get paid unless and until you do). We are selective, a reflection of our firm’s size and the quality of our work.

We are not a partnership. We are individual attorneys who focus on employment law, and who collaborate or co-counsel on complex matters as needed.
