Firm Details

Greene & Markley, P.C. is a Portland, Oregon law firm founded in 1983. Recognized throughout the Pacific Northwest as a leader in bankruptcy and insolvency matters, the firm represents businesses in the areas of creditors’ rights, bankruptcy, business litigation, appellate law, commercial law, taxation, real estate and corporate law.

Greene & Markley is one of the few firms in the region that can address both complex financial problems and the tax issues that often result from them.  The firm represents businesses of all sizes, including collection and foreclosure work for major banks and Fortune 500 companies.

The firm has intentionally limited its practice to business litigation, including real estate and debtor-creditor law, and such unique areas as fraudulent transfers, preferences, construction defects and lien litigation.  This necessarily involves interpretation of contracts and a thorough knowledge of practice and procedure in all state and federal courts.  The firm's attorneys are equally at home in bankruptcy court, where they have represented a wide range of creditors, trustees and debtors through complex proceedings.

"We treat every client as if they're our most important client.  We try to get the work out the same day whenever we can.  And, we pride ourselves on returning phone calls promptly." -- Founding Partner, Charles R. Markley
