Attorney Leuenburger was my attorney in a case where I was falsely sued in a civil case. He wrote an excellent defense.

Excellent, responsive, experienced, friendly
Jim gave me more hope in my case in 30 minutes than anyone else by far. Called him, he answered, told him my story, he knew the law and looked up a case just like mine where the person was acquitted. Boy, did that feel good. For the first time in 2 weeks I slept. Now that's not the end of the story by a long shot, but just that smidgen of hope was so helpful. The laws in Oregon are scary. One strike you are OUT. Jim has saved people, these are facts. Give him a call, you'll be glad you did.

I hired Mr. Leuenberger to represent me for a traffic crime. We were initially set for trial so around the 3rd court date, He shows up, not with the usual briefcase but with a binder that had to have my information in it considering it was my face on the cover. The Entire 8x10 cover. I told him I wasn't comfortable with my picture being displayed in such a manner. He responded by stating " Well, you're a very beautiful woman, don't you want the jury to see that?" Well, we weren't at trial and if we were, I would've been there. I felt kind of violated while he just thought it no big deal. Too expensive for the work he performs aside from that as well..
