Featured Law Firm

Markowitz, Herbold, Glade & Mehlhaf, a Portland, Oregon law firm founded in 1983, focuses on complex business and commercial litigation. Our lawyers practice before state and federal trial and appellate courts in Oregon and Washington, and in other jurisdictions throughout the country by special admission.

The firm and its 23 lawyers are highly regarded for their expertise in handling all aspects of litigation, including trials, appeals, arbitrations and mediations, on behalf of business and individuals.

When litigation is necessary, clients want a law firm that knows how to assess the options, build a strong case, press it effectively, and produce results.

At Markowitz, Herbold, Glade & Mehlhaf, this is what we do. We handle complex, demanding business litigation. We take care of litigation so our clients can take care of business.

Clients and professional colleagues alike rank us among the best litigation firms in the Pacific Northwest. In talent, experience, and professional standing, our lawyers are on a footing with the litigation departments of the region's largest law firms.

That is why clients turn to us so often. That is why our peers recommend us so frequently. That is why Chambers & Partners, in its respected publication America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, rated us first for business litigation in Oregon.

Our clients benefit from the qualities that distinguish our practice.

We have all the capabilities and resources of litigation departments in large law firms. At the same time, we're nimble and flexible. In particular, we look for creative and often lower-cost ways for clients to resolve legal conflicts.

We represent plaintiffs as well as defendants in business disputes. Experience on both sides helps us better anticipate and counter our opponents' strategies.

Since our founding in 1983, we have grown into a formidable, cohesive litigation team. We cover all the bases in business litigation. Our trial and advocacy skills are second to none. Experienced specialists handle research and writing, and it shows in the strength of our arguments and the quality of our briefs.

In representing clients, we employ advanced technologies, including electronic data management, online legal research, and specialized computer graphics in the courtroom. This results in compelling presentations that judges and juries appreciate.

We are dedicated to client satisfaction. We get to know our clients and their businesses – who they are, what they do, and what they need from us. Every member of our firm is committed to the highest level of service.

As a firm, we believe in professional and civic involvement. Our members frequently share their litigation expertise as continuing legal education speakers, as writers and editors, and as contributors to Oregon State Bar publications. We have taught law school courses, provided expert testimony on lawyer-client issues, served as pro tem judges, and filled bar leadership roles. Many of our lawyers provide pro bono counsel to low-income individuals and nonprofit organizations.

The firm as a whole supports a variety of worthwhile community causes. These include legal aid programs, fundraising for breast cancer research, emergency shelter for women and children, day care services for children of parents who have to be in court, and legal community support for the fight against hunger.

Our attorneys frequently volunteer as leaders on community projects and on nonprofit and civic boards. They are involved with organizations that oppose discrimination, advocate for and mentor children, promote the arts, and offer support services to cancer patients and their families.
