Bryan Richard Boender

About me

Attorney Bryan Boender has defended those accused of major felonies, misdemeanors, and DUII in our state and municipal courts. Boender has also pursued lawsuits on behalf of individuals into federal court to seek remedies for personal injury and civil rights violations. 


As a leader, Boender has distinguished himself through his dedication to public service and public interest law. Prior to law school, he served in the active-duty military as a paratrooper with the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division. As an enlisted infantryman, his service included fifteen months in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom. 


As an attorney, Boender continues to serve our community by devoting a substantial amount of his practice to veterans issues and causes. Working pro bono with the non-profit firm Access the Law, Boender helped establish the first Veterans Free Legal Clinic in Oregon in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. He also sits on the board of the Oregon Law Students Public Interest Fund, which raises money for law students to work in public interest positions that would otherwise go unpaid.


Boender is admitted to practice law in the State of Oregon; the United States District Court, District of Oregon; the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims; and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He is also accredited to represent claimants before the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.


Boender holds a Doctor of Jurisprudence (JD) from the University of Oregon (2012); a Master of Science (MS) in Public Policy with a concentration in Economics from Rutgers University (2000); and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Political Science from Seattle University (1998).
