About Me


Josh Lamborn began his career as a Multnomah County Prosecutor. He prosecuted crimes ranging from Rape to Robbery to Aggravated Murder. In his 12 years as a Deputy D.A. Mr. Lamborn amassed well over 100 jury trials. Only in trial can a lawyer truly learn the ins and outs of trial practice. Mr. Lamborn’s extensive trial experience and daily courtroom presence not only helped hone his trial skills, but also helped develop relationships with judges and court staff, and learn what motivates judges and juries. As an insider at the courthouse Mr. Lamborn has a unique advantage when it comes to representing his client’s interests.

While settling a case is sometimes in your best interest, Mr. Lamborn is a trial lawyer; he will not take your case in the hopes of settling it to avoid a trial. Insurance company lawyers attempt to settle lawsuits as cheaply as possible. Only the realistic threat of a trial keeps them honest. Other personal injury lawyers settle cases they know are worth more money just so they can avoid trial. Mr. Lamborn will not settle a case unless you are getting the maximum compensation for your injury.

All of Mr. Lamborn cases are on a contingency fee basis, which means if you do not recover any money neither does he. If you were injured in an accident call or email The Law Office of Josh Lamborn to arrange for a free consultation
