Joseph A Di Bartolomeo

About me

I have been working with clients and their families in the Columbia Pacific Region since 1991.  My focus has always been limited to representing injured and disabled people, whether it be Social Security Disabiltiy, Personal Injury, or Oregon Workers' Compensation Claims.  I have tried several cases in Tillamook, Clatsop, Columbia, and Multnomah Counties.  I have also represented clients in the US District Court for Oregon, the US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the US District Court for Western Washington, the Oregon Supreme Court and Oregon Court of Appeals.
