You hear it in most legal circles - Portland is a small legal community. And within this community there is a dearth of cost-effective business attorneys for small to mid-tier businesses. The business attorneys at the mid-size and larger firms in Portland are skilled in dealing with large companies and organizations. Unfortunately, this does not translate well for the small business owner. Billable hour requirements and considerable overhead expenses prevent many corporate attorneys from providing legal advice to small businesses at costs that they can afford. Levinson Law is able to meet this niche by providing cost-effective, highly competent corporate attorney services for small business owners and their families.

A law school friend of mine told a story where a professor at our law school was lamenting that most attorneys entering into the practice were "K thru JD" meaning that they went from kindergarten to getting their juris doctorate without ever working in a real job. These attorneys know plenty about the law, yet do not have real world experience to guide them as they provide small business owners with legal advice. Unlike these attorneys, I have had quite the adventure prior to my law degree.

Estate Planning
I used Greg to create my family's will. He did a very thorough job at a very reasonable rate. I would recommend him for wills and estate planning!

Smooth Living Will
Greg recently updated my and my wife's wills with new contact info and disbursements and the process could not have been smoother. He patiently took the time to pursue any questions we might have and explained much of the legalese we needed to know. Very knowledgeable and through.

Excellent Business Attorney
I have used Greg for a number of business transactions including setting up my S corp and drafting services contracts. Greg's client service was excellent. He replied to emails and phone calls promptly and delivered on time and at prices quoted. Greg is affordable and quite knowledgable. I highly recommend his services for the small business owner.

LLC setup
Greg set up my LLC for a restuarant I recently opened. Greg was amazing. He not only set up my LLC quickly, but also reviewed the commercial lease I was entering into and drafted a couple of contracts I needed. His insights into the lease helped me negotiate better terms than I had hoped for and showed that I had more leverage than I thought. His pricing for services were quite reasonable, especially with the client service he provides. I felt very comfortable throughout the process. I highly recommend his services.
