Honors & Awards

Alan has been with our firm for over 30 years and has recently transitioned from shareholder to an of counsel position. Although no longer serving the firm as a litigator, Alan continues to provide advice and counsel to our clients.  Alan particularly enjoys working closely with clients to help them develop management tools and strategies to effectively respond to employees whose disabilities affect their work, and/or those cases where an employee’s disability may overlap with workplace injuries and need for other protected status such as family medical leave. When the Americans with Disabilities Act became law in 1991, Alan was one of the first attorneys in the Portland metro area to provide employer seminars and training classes on implementing the ADA. Advising on ADA issues continues to be his primary practice focus, while also providing expert guidance to employers on utilizing best practices in managing difficult employees. 

When not working with clients, Alan volunteers as a mediator for the Multnomah County Circuit Court and other charitable activities. As native Portlanders, Alan and his wife, Laurie, a retired attorney, enjoy exploring all of the recent changes to Portland. Alan actively volunteers and supports Laurie in her national MS society activities and they recently co-captained Laurie’s business and professional team in the Walk MS. Alan also greatly enjoys spending quality time with children, grandchildren and friends.
