Tab is a member of our litigation department and represents individuals and businesses across diverse industries in a variety of civil litigation cases. Tab enjoys navigating complex legal disputes and working with his clients to identify creative and effective strategies to reach the best resolution for each particular case. Sometimes a client's case can be won short of trial through motion practice. Other times, a case is best resolved through mediation or informal dispute resolution and negotiation. Tab has significant experience resolving problems through both of these strategies.

Additionally, Tab is a seasoned litigator with substantial trial and courtroom experience, and experience crafting effective, practical trial strategies. If the best resolution for a client's case is a trial, Tab has the experience and insight that allow him to put the client's best foot forward in a courtroom.

Tab has been selected by his peers as an Oregon Super Lawyers "Rising Star," an honor that is reserved for only 2.5% of Oregon lawyers. He has also been selected for inclusion in the inaugural 2021 Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch list.

Outside of the office, Tab enjoys spending time with friends and family. Tab and his wife Abby are proud (and busy!) parents to William, Freddy, and twin girls Nell and Jane, and their family dog Jack.

Client Quotes:

"I think [the Judge] had a great day in the office today, Tab, you were fun to watch today practicing your trade. Your arguments were well prepared, and your change of strategy on the fly was brilliant. Very well done. Have Martindale-Hubble give me a call and I'll attest to your skills any time."

"You were so helpful throughout this whole experience and we greatly appreciated all that you did for us. We couldn't have asked for a better team to help us through this challenging situation."

"Thank you again for your work on my case. I'm especially grateful for the way you communicated with me throughout the process, always took the time to answer my questions and explain strategy, and showed me kindness and professionalism."

"The care with which you handled my case and kept me informed along the way meant so much to me and my family. I am thankful to know there are good attorneys like yourself that truly care for their clients."
