My goal is to break the stereotype of the attorney clients never want to call. I do this by putting my clients best interests before my own fee. My number 1 goal is to have every client feel like they found the best attorney in town for the lowest cost.

I am in my 13th year of practice in Oregon, and I specialize in real estate, business, and tax law.  


I have helped hundreds of clients with the following legal issues:

  • business transactions such as entity start-ups, real estate deals, lending transactions, franchising, and tax problems.
  • foreclosure assistance
  • individual or business audits and appeals to the tax court.
  • leasing, trademark registration, and financing issues

My clients have included homeowners, small business owners, real estate investors, real estate brokers, homeowners associations, franchisors, developers, "hard money" lenders, angel investors, private foreign banks and trust companies. I also have extensive experience with asset protection planning utilizing domestic arrangements and foreign jurisdictions and investment product.

| Hired Attorney
Great experience with an honest and affordable attorney
Ben helped my wife and I with a very limited time frame where our backs were against the wall and went way beyond the norm to help us keep our home. Would highly recommend him to anyone. Plus he is more affordable than most.
