Client Comments

"Andrew Altschul is an exceptional attorney and human being. Any client would be lucky to have Andrew as his or her lawyer."

"Andrew Altschul agreed to represent me in a case against the State of Oregon even though upon our first meeting there appeared to be very little chance of successfully negotiating a settlement. However, after probing further, Mr. Altschul believed I was poorly treated during a separation and in a manner that could have damaged my professional reputation after 24 years of stellar performance with this agency. He made the consequences of every decision I needed to make very clear. He successfully negotiated an agreement that protected my reputation, provided six months of pay and provided the service at a very reasonable cost. I am grateful to Mr. Altschul and his firm."
