Jane Paulson has won several multi-million dollar settlements and results for clients.
She represents individuals and families whose lives have been changed
forever by the wrongs of others. While some lawyers are afraid of trial,
Jane Paulson relishes trial.
Jane had the honor of serving on the Oregon Trial Lawyer's Association
("OTLA") Board 1995-2006, was one of Oregon's two American
Trial Lawyer Association Delegates 2000-2004, and was President of OTLA
2004-2005. She is an Associate in the
American Board of Trial Advocates (Executive Board from 2011-present) and is listed in
Best Lawyers in America for personal injury and medical malpractice cases.
Jane was honored in 2012 by being invited to join the
American College of Trial Lawyers and is one of five women in Oregon in the College. In 2012, Jane and her
father, Chuck, became one of the few father-daughter teams in the College.
The College is a professional society of Fellows who become members only
by invitation. The College looks for lawyers who are considered by other
lawyers and judges to be the best in their states or provinces, lawyers
whose ethical and moral standards are the highest, and lawyers who share
the intangible quality of collegiality.
Jane is listed as one of the Best Lawyers in America; an
Oregon Super Lawyer (Oregon Top 50), one of Oregon's Top 25 Women Super Lawyers and one
of Portland's Best Lawyers in Portland Monthly magazine.
Jane attended the University of Virginia School of Law. After clerking
for a federal judge, the Honorable James M. Burns, in Portland she worked
for several years at a well-regarded defense firm where she gained firsthand
knowledge of practices and legal strategies of insurance companies and
their defense teams.
She has also served several local and state bar committees including the
Oregon State Bar Affirmative Action Committee, the Oregon State Bar Procedure
and Practice Committee and the Multnomah Bar Association Judicial Screening
Jane, like all the lawyers in our firm, enjoys spending time with her family
and believes in giving back. She works with and is a Board member of the
Center for Women's Leadership.
