Ron is a trial lawyer serving as Of Counsel at Kaplan Law, LLC. Before beginning his legal career, Ron was involved in public service; helping marginalized communities gain respect and dignity. As a result of his work with women rights, minority groups, and college students, Ron was presented with a leadership award by the local NAACP chapter.
Considered one of the nation’s top client counselors by the Law Student Division of the American Bar Association, Ron now focuses his talent and passion on helping people who have been severely injured. Ron represents victims of drunk driving and those with devastating injuries from dental malpractice, pharmaceutical errors, and other life-changing events.
Ron strongly believes that those who are catastrophically harmed deserve to have their dignity restored or compensated for – especially when their injuries are a result of corporate greed or reckless indifference to the poor, disabled, and other vulnerable populations.
Ron continues to volunteer with students, minority groups, and tackles several pro bonoprojects a year to give back to the community. A frequent public speaker to various legal and non-legal organizations, Ron believes in raising strong leaders and lawyers to protect the vulnerable and make our society stronger.
Ron was presented with Lewis & Clark Law School’s Mentor of the Year Award; presented with the Community Spirit Award at the Lewis & Clark Distinguished Alumni Dinner; and was further recognized by the Oregon State Bar ONLD with the Public Service Award.
