You hear it in most legal circles - Portland is a small legal community. And within this community there is a dearth of cost-effective business attorneys for small to mid-tier businesses. The business attorneys at the mid-size and larger firms in Portland are skilled in dealing with large companies and organizations. Unfortunately, this does not translate well for the small business owner. Billable hour requirements and considerable overhead expenses prevent many corporate attorneys from providing legal advice to small businesses at costs that they can afford. Levinson Law is able to meet this niche by providing cost-effective, highly competent corporate attorney services for small business owners and their families.
A law school friend of mine told a story where a professor at our law school was lamenting that most attorneys entering into the practice were "K thru JD" meaning that they went from kindergarten to getting their juris doctorate without ever working in a real job. These attorneys know plenty about the law, yet do not have real world experience to guide them as they provide small business owners with legal advice. Unlike these attorneys, I have had quite the adventure prior to my law degree.

Greg is not just an excellent lawyer, he is also a great person to work with. He offers his clients superb legal skills along with a character and personality to match. I strongly endorse Greg as the "go to" business attorney in the greater Portland area.
