About me

My practice is in a medium sized Oregon town but my firm handles cases all over the state of Oregon regarding various types of litigation, in both Federal and State courts.  We also frequently associate with out-of-state law firms.  We know all of the ins and outs of litigating in this state and our firm has been a fixture in Southern Oregon for over 50 years and is well known throughout the state.  We also handle appeals in all courts.


I also do various types of transactional work, including estates and estate planning.  We have a large and professional staff available to support us and help the clients with their needs.


I am lucky to live in a beautiful part of the Country and be able to translate my hard work ethic into results for clients.

  • L Christopher Arvin

    I endorse this lawyer. I met Christopher Cauble, Esq. on Avvo, reading his advise to Avvo subscribers with Oregon and Washington questions. I found his reasoning thoughtful, concise and well reasoned. I also like that Mr. Cauble approach is down to earth and approachable. He has added a good deal to Avvo by assembling legal guides. Being in California, I have a number of clients that either own property in Oregon, are considering moving there, or have family members there (Washington State too). I am thrilled that I have a source to ask questions, and someone to refer my clients to!

WASuspended - Discipline200208/16/2016

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.

  1. Suspension
    issued in WA, 2013


    This means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

  2. Suspension - Disciplinary
    issued in OR, 2013


    This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

    Christopher’s comment: “This disciplinary matter was hotly contested by me. It related to a conflict of interest issue that was a "new" issue for the Oregon State Bar relating to limiting the scope of representation and potential conflicts of interest. The Bar did not see things my way and, unfortunately, I received a short term suspension. I and this firm intend to continue excellence in the practice of law and running an office that complies with the best standards of professionalism.”
