Reliable guidance...
Judson did a wonderful job guiding me through the bankruptcy process. He promptly returned my calls and emails when I had questions or concerns. He took a potentially painful process and made it as quick and painless as possible. I appreciate his follow through and grace. I breathed many sighs of relief at each turn knowing I was in good hands.

The Best!
No one wants to be in bankruptcy, but Judson Carusone showed us such compassion, patience, and listened closely to our needs and questions. His knowledge of the law and experience in the industry are first rate, and we always felt we were in good hands. I couldn’t recommend him more highly. Thank you Judson!

Professional and helpful
An auto accident disabled me and we were forced into bankruptcy. It became complicated because there was also a law suit with an insurance company that dragged on for over 4 years. Judson Carusone was extremely helpful and patient as this quagmire was navigated, and even helped us find an excellent motor vehicle accident attorney. Highly recommended.

The Best!
I can not say enough good things about Judson and his office. If you are self-employed, have a business, definitely go to him. We met with five different lawyers before him who did not know how to go in regards to business debts and what to file. We felt Judson was able to answer all of our questions, guide us on what would be most effective and if you're not used to the process he also addressed all of our fears through the process. He is very knowledgeable and professional.

Brilliant
Judson is one of the brightest people I have ever met. He has sharp intellect and knows the law inside and out. After an initial meeting I decided that I couldn't find a better person to represent me. You cannot go I'm trusting your affairs with Judson.

Patience and Excellence Personified
Jud represented us in a foreclosure prevention case that he took over after our first lawyer retired. It was a long 8 years and a very hard-fought battle, but Jud was with us every step of the way and got us to an acceptable settlement. If I had to do it again, Jud is the only lawyer I would ever consider hiring.

Always Does the Right Thing
Mr. Carusone won for us against an out-of-state, high-priced attorney by being a better lawyer, researching case histories and doing the right thing. An amazing human being, father and husband, we were lucky to find him!

Ethical and Committed
I was losing everything because of 9/11, and my then retiring attorney brought Jud in to save the situation I was in, which was complicated by an adverse proceeding in BK Court. Not only did Jud prevail in the proceeding, but he went on to win all of the litigationists' appeals all the way to the 9th circuit court. He did this by being ethical and taking the high road, out-smarting and out-working the litigator at every turn. To this day, he is complemented by other attorneys for this land-mark case that even caused Oregon law to be changed. I am a business owner and have had many attorneys over the years, but Jud is by far the most understanding, capable, balanced, intelligent and problem-solving attorney I have ever known. I would recommend no-one above him.

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2006.

Reprimand issued in OR, 2006
updated on 12/05/2009

This means the lawyer did something wrong but the bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
