Vogele & Christiansen, NW Portland

Thank you for visiting our employment law firm.

Employment law spans an evolving set of legal subjects. As society changes rapidly, so do the laws governing employee rights.

Our job is to stay well-informed and well-rounded in this body of law to vigorously 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, including employment contract reviews and other non-litigated matters. For litigation and contingency fee work (i.e., we don't get paid unless and until you do), we are very selective, a reflection of our firm’s size and the quality of our work.
