About Jeremy

Learn Jeremy’s areas of practice.

Practice areas

My practice focuses on civil litigation, business start-up and organization, real estate transactions, landlord/tenant issues, estate planning, and probate.  I advise individuals, businesses, and other organizations on a range of legal matters.  I also handle litigation matters, including commercial disputes, personal injury cases, and insurance claims.  My background in land development and professional services marketing helps me to understand that my clients need advice that will help them identify risks and make informed decisions.  I also know that clients expect and deserve the utmost professionalism from an attorney, and I strive always to be a responsive and courteous advocate in all of my dealings on behalf of my clients.  


My wife and I moved to Portland in 2008 from Denver, Colorado.  As much as we enjoyed Colorado, we are so happy to be working and living here in the great state of Oregon.  I love practicing law here, and nothing is more satisfying that achieving the best possible results for my clients.  When we're not working, my wife and I spend most of our free time chasing after our twin toddlers as they explore and learn about the many natural wonders of the Pacific Northwest.

Very Knowledgeable and Easy to Work With
My husband and I recommend attorney Jeremy James to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, comprehensive, confident, smart and friendly attorney. Our experience with Jeremy was nothing but pleasurable, even though we were experiencing a very trying legal matter for almost a year. Jeremy will attend your meetings/hearings fully prepared and will get his points across confidently and clearly. The outcome of our legal matter was completely favorable to us all because of Jeremy. Jeremy James is an asset to the legal community.

Trustworthy, Professional, Sound Advice
My wife and I had started a small business, and Jeremy was the resource we needed to provide it with a solid foundation. From the formation of our LLC, to contract services, operating agreements, strengthening our corporate veil, insurance advice, and more, Jeremy handled everything we threw at him. He went above and beyond with his quick communication and turn around time. Our business is strong, and we feel more prepared than I could have expected. I highly recommend Jeremy for your business attorney needs, and we will continue to work with him for many years to come.

Endorse Jeremy
Personal injury Attorney | Jul 08
Relationship: Co-worker
"Although I am endorsing Jeremy for personal injury, I would feel extremely confident in retaining him on any manner. I often turn to Jeremy when I have a question about the law in any area of my practice. He is always helpful, friendly and professional. More importantly, I know when I have a question for Jeremy, he will provide the correct response. Additionally, he has often gone above and beyond answering my question by pointing out a nuance of the law that I did not even ask him about. In short, Jeremy is one heck of an attorney."
