Insurance companies have lawyers handle your claim. Why don’t you? In the 1990s, the Insurance Research Council conducted a study over 85,000 auto injury cases. The Counsel issued findings that the average insurance settlement to an injured person with a personal injury attorney is 3,5 times higher than average settlement to the injured person without a personal injury attorney.

DO YOU WANT TO WIN?
Sometimes it takes more than a well-rounded education, years of experience, and an understanding of the psychology that separates prosecution from defense . . . sometimes it takes Guts to stay the course! We initially chose Mr. Herron based on AVVO reviews, his years of experience, his area of expertise, and even his physical appearance bearing in mind how our son might receive and interact with Mr. Herron and how Mr. Herron's appearance might be perceived in the courtroom by juror's. Just like you, we faced debilitating fear, gut wrenching anxiety, sleepless nights, the potential that justice would criminalize someone who was not a criminal but who had made a poor choice, and the possibility that our lives would be changed forever with no way to recover what was lost. Mr. Herron and Olga exercised patience, tolerance, understanding, reassurance and excellent communication skills when dealing with us. They never sugar coated the facts or the probabilities. They never held us in their laps. The bottom line . . . if you are looking for someone to coddle you and hand you tissues you might not be happy BUT if you want a team that will partner with you to help release the agonizing uncertainty of accusation and preserve all that you love and have worked for your whole life to achieve . . . If you want to plant the flag on top of Everest . . . Call Bartley Herron and Olga.

Herron Law LLC
I was very satisfied with how well Bart and Olga were able to resolve my personal injury case for me. I was in a car accident and the insurance companies were so difficult to deal with, when I was trying to resolve the case myself. I hired Bart Herron, who took over all the stress of dealing with the insurance adjusters. Olga was very attentive and professional with my questions and collecting all the information needed to resolve the case. Bart was able to get the insurance company to pay the medical bills and I also received a fair settlement check. I highly recommend Bart Herron because he works hard for his clients to give them the representation they need when dealing with legal matters.

Personable, Assuring, and Painless
I had my first (and only DUI) and I hired because he was the first attorney to reach back out to me after attempting to speak with several others. He called me while he was on vacation with his family to follow up and set up an appointment right away. Bart and his team were personable and thoroughly explained the what to do and what to expect over the phone, were very reassuring and comforting. I walked into their office and there was absolutely no judgement and uncertainty and I knew right then I wanted to hire him. His one-time fee for this particular case made it incredibly easy and decreased the level of anxiety and stress, as I had no idea what I needed to do. They take their time with you, are patient, and quite a joy to work with, despite the circumstances. Bart and Olga are a dynamic duo and are truly passionate about their line of work, and sincerely care about their clients' and their well-beings. I would strongly recommend the to anyone who needed an attorney.

Very thorough!
Though I don't know the out come of my accident as of yet, I do know Bart and his assistant Olga have been very thorough going through all the medical,surgery & insurance papers since my accident Nov 12, 2014 and have been very compassionate and understanding with the physical pain and all the bills I've had to endure till this case comes to an end! I really feel Bart Herron is one of the best lawyers in Oregon and he truly loves what he does!

Olga was amazing.
I contacted the Law firm. My encounter was with Olga. She was extremely Professional and very thorough with the questions that she asked me to gain the information to assist me with my issues. Olga went above and beyond to help me and she was very knowledgable about the law and giving me information for me to make my decision in the next steps I needed to take. It was great speaking with Olga because I had no past issues with DMV, I did not know where to begin with the DMV problem that had presented itself. Olga is a asset to your firm. My drivers license was threatened to be suspended by DMV, but because of Olga's input and guidance, My drivers license was saved, because of information that was gained from Olga. I would highly recommend this Law Firm. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely Sabrina H

Made an awful life experience survivable
My DUI has been the most miserable experience of my life. I needed someone to not only navigate me through my legal rights, but someone who understood that I am, at heart, a very honest and ethical person, and that I learn from my mistakes. I heard about Bart from a friend who had hired him for her DUI. I spoke with several attorney offices and lawyers, but 2 of 4 of them refused to even talk to me about my case without a $3000 check in hand. After talking to Olga the first time over the phone, I was fairly confident that Herron's office would be the right choice. Olga talked openly and candidly about her thoughts on my DUI and gave me specific instructions on what I should do next. Upon my first meeting with Bart, he seemed fair, understanding, intelligent, and the office was supportive and encouraging. When you are at your lowest, it's important to remember that we are human and we make terrible mistakes sometimes, but that doesn't automatically make us bad people. Every step of the way, every appointment and hearing Bart and Olga confirmed with utmost professionalism and care, that I'd made the right choice. I'm thankful to have these amazing people on my side. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Herron Law Office to anyone facing similar circumstances. You may regret what led you to hiring an attorney, but you won't regret hiring Herron.

Dui
I contacted and meet with mr Herron shortly after I got my dui . He was very straight forward with what was most likely going to happen and had no problem spending his time to convince me to hire him . He made it so I barely had any paper work to do my self and he kept in contact with the court for me . . I only had to appear at court once and he made it as stress free as possible .he also won the dmv court hearing which let me keep my license . I would suggest him to anybody going threw a dui who wants it resolved easily !

SIMPLY THE BEST
Bart and Olga...and the rest of his staff are truly professional and caring. After a very serious MVA, they immediately made sure I took care of myself first...all the right medical care...and they were patient and walked me through every step, making sure my interests were protected. They explained everything that was going on, and what I could expect. Great people to work with.....I'm so glad I found them

Best Law Office Around
This period of my life has been one of the most difficult and stressful times I've ever faced. I've never had any issues in my life like this and it has been so intense, scary and difficult I can't put in words. BUT Mr. Herron and Olga were amazing helping me through this. They walked with me in my path of darkness and held my hand through the entire thing. I'm so happy that God blessed me by putting them in my path. Like you I read a lot of blogs trying to find the correct people to represent me. Time after time people said how amazing they were for this reason I decided to meet with them. As with the other posts and mine NO ONE is lying these people are amazing. Stop looking around and make your first appointment you will not be unhappy about your choice. Olga you are a god send and thank you so much for who you are and your personal support I know I freaked out multiple times and you made it better. Thanks, Dave

Can't go Wrong!
If you need an attorney I'm sorry you have to go find one but I feel your concerns. Been there done that myself. After 7 different attorneys I check out I finally settled on Mr. Herron practice. Several reasons. First of all they have an excellent track record of success. Which of course is important for any of us. You can tell the whole organization really cares about you. If they felt they could not be of help to us, they would not waste your time or theirs and they will let you know. They don't just take everybody that walks through the door. Another important factor at least to me is Bartley is a family man and values family life. That says a lot about someone's character. In a day and age where values, principles, and morals are an exception, you can rest assured you will get all of that and more from their entire group. Like the title says. " You Can't Go Wrong"

Bartley E Herron is the most Honest, professional and experienced Lawyer
I got hit by a car and injured very bad with a lots of bills. Because of my insurance after 14 days Hospital pushing me out with broken body. So my husband consulted with an Honest and Trustworthy Lawyer Bartley E Herron free of charge. First of all, he made sure I got the right medical treatment and helped me to understand my right. After speaking with him most of our stress and worry went away. We hired him. I notice he is very caring ,friendly, honest and skilful lawyer. If you want a law firm built on honesty and integrity, I highly recommend you use the services of the Herron Law LLC .

We all make mistakes, however when those mistakes involve a law being broken....thats tuff! I got a DUI. And if u get one of those... Call Herron. Trust me. First time I called Herron's office; i was surprised how helpful and respectful the office was, and that was before i talked to Bart...after talking to his staff i knew Bart was going to help me get past my mistakes... Eventually he did. Call his office if u need help for mistakes everyday people sometimes make!

Bart Goes the Extra Mile
Bartley Herron and his staff are extremely skilled and helpful. I found him here on AVVO and read the reviews and honestly thought they may have been to good to be true. I was wrong. He did an amazing job defending me in my DUII case. Because of his knowledge and willingness to do any and all extra work needed in my case I received the best outcome possible, and i really feel he is solely responsible for this. His legal staff is also very knowledgeable and helpful. For me it was a huge comfort in a time where I had very little.
