By constantly tracking new legislation, I help schools comply with the daily pressures of continuously changing laws.

My clients depend on me to know and understand the intricate details of the constantly evolving laws that regulate everyday life in Oregon schools. I often minimize exposure for my clients through strategic planning, comprehensive training and thorough investigations. If litigation is unavoidable, I carefully guide my clients through the trial process to preserve their interests every step of the way.

Anti-Racism Statement

Garrett Hemann Robertson P.C. was founded on the belief that beyond the basic expectation of providing legal services at the highest level of the profession, we have a responsibility to live up to our core values of inclusion, equality, and respect for people of all backgrounds. As lawyers, we fully support all efforts to address inequities and create positive changes in our society.

While the words we express here are important, we should not lose sight of how our individual actions, each and every day, can contribute to lifting up members of our community when they are most in need. We commit to individually and collectively take action in support of our values and welcome your feedback and ideas so that we can move forward, together, to build a more inclusive community.
