Oregon State Bar Award of Appreciation

Jane Paulson was recognized last night with four other members of the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association by the President of the Oregon State Bar, Rick Yugler, with the President’s Special Award of Appreciation. The award is a discretionary award of the president of the bar, with the concurrence of the board, presented to a person who has made recent outstanding contributions to the bar, the bench and/or the community. The group was recognized for their efforts to defeat a ballot measure, funded in large part by Bill Sizemore’s friend Loren Parks, to cap attorney fees at 10% (on cases over $25,000 with under $25,000 capped at 25%).
