About Me

Bjorn Hess is a founding member and partner of Hazen, Hess & Ott, PLLC. Bjorn is a Washington native. Bjorn's grandfather was a State Senator who taught him that people from all walks of life need strong advocates to stand up for them. While attending the UW Bjorn worked as a legislative intern for a United States Senator in Washington,  D.C. 

Bjorn completed his Doctor of Jurisprudence and Master of Science in Personal Financial Planning at Texas Tech University. He passed the Washington bar and opened his own practice in Vancouver focusing on criminal defense and landlord tenant law. Bjorn moved his practice to Camas, WA in Spring 2013.

Bjorn enjoys a variety of outdoor activities including skiing in the winter, hunting in the fall with his chocolate lab Kona (who can often be found at the office), and boating in the summer.
