About me

Bill Buchanan was born in Bend and grew up on a wheat

college years at Oregon State University he served as an
intern for United States Senator Mark O. Hatfield and as a

Ness, Feldman and Curtis, P.C.

These experiences galvanized Bill's interest in the law. Bill
returned to Oregon in 1993 and practiced for several years in
Portland with Miller Nash LLP before returning to his hometown
of Bend to practice with Karnopp Petersen. A litigator by
trade, he assists clients in resolving their civil disputes
both in the courtroom and at the bargaining table. Bill
focuses his practice on business and property related
litigation, public infrastructure law, and takings and
condemnation law. He represents individuals and businesses in
