About Me

At Brothers, Hawn &Coughlin we find solutions.  As personal injury trial lawyers, we are known for our creative and imaginative approach to complex insurance and product liability problems.  Since 1980, we've obtained positive results for our clients.  From our beautiful building on theDeschutesRiverinBend, we offer legal counsel in personal injury cases to clients throughout central and easternOregon.

Our aggressive litigation against insurance companies that deny coverage or refuse to make reasonable settlement offers has resulted in multiple successful settlements on behalf of our clients, and has brought about significant changes in the way insurance policies are written and interpreted.

Our personal injury work includes automobile accidents, medical malpractice, complex insurance coverage issues, trucking accidents, motorcycle cases, sexual abuse and invasion of privacy cases, and dram shop cases. We are not afraid to sue large corporations or the government. We have successfully sued the state over road design flaws.

If you’re not sure whether or not you have a case, call us to talk it over. We invite you to contact us to discuss your personal injury or family law case. For personal injury cases, we offer a free initial consultation.

    I had the pleasure of working with Wayne for several years when he practiced in Alaska. Wayne is an excellent, intelligent, thoughtful and compassionate attorney. Wayne worked hard to get good results for his clients. He is honest, kind, and dedicated to his cases. Wayne represented clients in complex litigation including highly successful representation of two seafood processors in the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. Whether a car accident, aviation accident or products liability matter, Wayne has the intelligence, knowledge, and dedication to obtain the kind of results that truly make a positive difference for the injured people he has helped. I highly recommend Wayne.
