Josh Lamborn began his career as a Multnomah County Prosecutor. He prosecuted crimes ranging from Rape to Robbery to Aggravated Murder. In his 12 years as a Deputy D.A. Mr. Lamborn amassed well over 100 jury trials. Only in trial can a lawyer truly learn the ins and outs of trial practice. Mr. Lamborn’s extensive trial experience and daily courtroom presence not only helped hone his trial skills, but also helped develop relationships with judges and court staff, and learn what motivates judges and juries. As an insider at the courthouse Mr. Lamborn has an advantage when it comes to representing his client’s interests.

While settling a case is sometimes in your best interest, Mr. Lamborn is a trial lawyer; he will not take your case in the hopes of settling it to avoid a trial. Insurance company lawyers attempt to settle lawsuits as cheaply as possible. Only the realistic threat of a trial keeps them honest. Other personal injury lawyers settle cases they know are worth more money just so they can avoid trial. Mr. Lamborn will not settle a case unless you are getting the maximum compensation for your injury.

All of Mr. Lamborn cases are on a contingency fee basis, which means if you do not recover any money neither does he. If you were injured in an accident call or email The Law Office of Josh Lamborn to arrange for a free consultation

Highly Recommended
Our daughter was hit by a car and killed while in a crosswalk. We were fortunate to find Josh to take our case. I could not imagine a more effective attorney. Josh took on all of the details of our case. He recommended a highly competent probate attorney to handle the details of our daughter's estate. His assistant Jessica very effectively managed many of the interface details between his office and the probate attorney's office. Josh worked diligently with the insurance companies, dealing with their stalling tactics and negotiating a generous and fair settlement. He worked extremely effectively with the District Attorney's office and the ADA assigned to our case. His guidance was always pragmatic and thoughtful. He and Jessica were always readily accessible whenever we had a question. He worked very effectively with the Defendant's attorney. His knowledge, confidence, personable nature and competence were a great comfort to my wife and I through a very difficult time. I could not imagine a more competent, effective and personable attorney to guide someone through such difficult circumstances.

Great Experience
Josh is an amazing attorney. He and his staff were both honest, responsive, and fair. They were quick to respond to emails and phone calls and were very professional. Josh saved us a lot of time and energy and made the process easy. He obviously takes pride in his work and enjoys what he does. Anyone would be lucky to have him on their side. We are very pleased.

Totally Trusted Josh in Handling My Case
My case didn't have to best of chances to begin with, but Josh listened to my concerns and took it on. He helped me seek the medical care I needed, was diligent in representing my cause, kept me informed all the way through, and we ended up winning a favorable settlement. I would definitely recommend Josh to anyone and would seek him again should I need representation in the future. Thank you Josh!

Forever Grateful!!!
Mr. Lamborn is nothing less than an amazing, caring, compassionate, and comforting attorney. Though I have never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Lamborn or shaking his hand (or giving him a huge hug is really what I want to do), I can say that I honestly feel like I know him and he know's me. I was referred to Josh by an attorney who actually couldn't take my case, but I am so grateful that she did not because I never would have had the pleasure of working w/Mr. Lamborn via mail, phone, and e-mail. He helped me through an incredibly difficult and deeply emotional time in my life, and I'm not even sure that he could even grasp how much it meant to me that he took the time to deal w/all of crazy questions and emotional phone calls. My case was a very different one and not many attorney's would have been willing to take it, let alone deal w/all that came w/taking it, and then playing counselor as a bonus. Not only did he take it but he won it and I would recommend him to anyone that needs a personal injury attorney. Incredible person = incredible attorney!!! Thank you so much for everything Josh, and I know, that you know, I mean that from the bottom of my heart!!!!!! Keep on doing what you do best, CHANGING lives for the better. I have peace thanks to you. If you need a lawyer, no need to look any further!! If your reading this then you have found the right one, congratulations!!

fantastic Attorney.
I have know Josh Lamborn for many years, I have personally see him in court when he was still working as a Mult. County DA. Because of his outstanding work in the district attorney office, I sought him out when I needed his services after being struck by a vehicle while riding my motorcycle. Not only did he get me a large payout, he also was able to work it so medically, the insurance would cover me and not state per- existing conditions in the future. I was, and still am so confident in his ability's, I have sent several friends to him that were in need of a top notch lawyer. Josh has been a pleasure to work with, and if ever needed in the future, I will not hesitate to have him represent me or anyone I know.

The Best Attorney I have had the pleasure of working with and resolving my case in my favor with NO drama at all.
Josh Lamborn excepted my case and took all of the worries and stress of my case off of my shoulders and handled it in a professional manner. Even though my case would be what most lawyers would consider a minor or low level case, Mr. Lamborn took my case and made feel as though it was just as important to him as it was to me and I really appreaciated that. He worked very hard for me in culminating my case, and was always available to answer all of my questions and walked me through the process, and made sure I understood each step of my case. He kept me informed of my case all the way to the end, and let me make decisions after advising me. He is very knowledeable of the law and knows what he is doing, which seem to give me comfort. He is very trustworthy to the point that I would recommend anyone of my closest friends and any of my family member to hire him if and when they needed a lawyer. He was always there for me when I needed answers and very easy to get a hold of. On a scale of 0-10 with 10 being the highest grade, I would give him a 10+. He is in deed is an awsome, fair, trustworthy, knowledgeable, responsive, caring, hard working attorney that worked hard for me and won my case for me without any problems for me.

Josh Lamborn
Josh Lamborn did a great job in seeking out the finest details for me. He went up and beyond the case to seek out further information to help us in our case.
