Kathy Hindman's Northwest roots run deep. Her family tree goes back five generations to her great grandfather who traveled west on the Oregon Trail to settle in Baker City and later became its mayor. Like her great grandfather, Kathy has a desire to make a positive impact. She is passionate about helping companies navigate the complexities of labor and employment law. Kathy uses her zeal to understand the clients' particular business needs and develop practical solutions. Her focus is on employment-related advice, litigation prevention and on-site supervisory training.
Kathy specializes in public and private sector wage and hour compliance, workplace harassment and discrimination, family medical leave, injured workers, the interactive process and reasonable accommodation. She regularly represents employers who are facing audits and investigations from the US Department of Labor and state agencies, as well as advising clients in class suit litigation.
Kathy is a frequent speaker in the business community, and has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America, Oregon Super Lawyers and Chambers USA. Kathy is the former General Counsel to the Portland Human Resource Management Association Board.
When she's not working or volunteering, Kathy likes to spend time in the outdoors and with her daughter.
