Jane Paulson is passionate about trial law. While many attorneys shy away
from litigation, Jane relishes the chance to stand up for her clients
in court. She represents people throughout Oregon and Washington who have
been harmed by the negligence or legal fault of others, and she has won
millions of dollars for her clients doing so.
Fromm 1995 to 2006, Jane was honored with the opportunity of serving on
the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association or “OTLA” as a board
member. From 2000 to 2004, she served as one of just two American Trial
Lawyer Association delegates from the state of Oregon. She has also acted
as the President of the OTLA (from 2004-2005), is an Associate with the
American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) and listed in The Best Lawyers
in America for her work in the field of personal injury and medical malpractice.
In 2012, the American College of Trial Lawyers invited Jane to join the
organization as one of just five women attorneys in Oregon. This also
meant that her and her father, Chuck, were one of the few father-daughter
teams with the College.
Among Jane’s honors and recognitions are:
- Best Lawyers in America
- Oregon Super Lawyers (Oregon Top 50)
- Oregon's Top 25 Women Super Lawyers
- Portland's Best Lawyers in Portland Monthly magazine
Jane is a graduate of University of Virginia School of Law. She clerked
for federal judge James M. Burns and worked for several years at a well-regarded
defense firm. Her past work also includes serving on various local and
state bar committees.
She is a passionate advocate of giving back to her community and believes
in spending as much time with her family as possible. Currently, she works
with and is a board member with the Center for Women’s Leadership.
