About Me

Brandy Pirtle-Guiney joined Davis Law Offices in October 2012 and focuses her practice on plaintiff and small business employment law, civil rights, estate planning, and legal issues affecting the LGBT community.


Brandy previously worked as a Senior Civil Rights Investigator with the Bureau of Labor and Industries where she spent several years handling employment, housing and public accommodation discrimination claims and staffed the Oregon Council on Civil Rights.  Prior to her work at BOLI, Brandy was with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, the Commonwealth’s civil rights enforcement agency, handling cases through all stages of litigation.


A 2006 graduate of Western New England University School of Law, Brandy is admitted to practice in Oregon and Massachusetts (inactive). She is a proud member of the Multnomah Bar Association, Oregon Women Lawyers, Oregon Gay and Lesbian Law Association, and the Estate Planning and Labor and Employment Sections of the Oregon State Bar. She has served as a Mock Trial judge through the Classroom Law Project and has volunteered with the Multnomah Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Section Imprint program.


In her free time, Brandy serves on the Board of the Pride Foundation, a community foundation grounded in social justice philanthropy, and volunteers as the Produce for People coordinator at her community garden, ensuring that hundreds of pounds of fresh produce make it to members of the community through a local food pantry.  Brandy also enjoys live music, Portland’s incomparable food scene, cheering the Boston Red Sox, and exploring the Pacific Northwest with her wife and their dog.
