About Autumn

Learn Autumn’s areas of practice.

I describe myself as a law and public policy nerd. While I am passionate about environmental, food/agriculture, and animal law and policy, much of my work falls within energy policy. I am currently focused on reducing carbon emissions in the electric sector by moving to clean energy and closing fossil fuels, as well as reducing carbon emissions in the transportation sector by moving towards electric vehicles. I am experienced in policy advocacy at all levels of government and have been working in the environmental sector since 2007 and the energy sector since 2016.

I am a licensed attorney in Oregon and Washington. I am also registered as In House Counsel with the State Bar of Arizona.

Great experience with Autumn
Autumn provided a great experience in my first time consulting with an attorney. She was customer focused and flexible in her availability and meeting locations, which was a huge plus on top of her knowledge and willingness to work for her client. She is straightforward, which is what I liked about her as well. There is no sales pitch and no sugar coating involved. She reviewed my legal documents, advised me on my options, and was always very responsive and professional. If I require future legal advise, I will be turning to Autumn.

Autumn is everything a lawyer should be!
Autumn is professional, quick, and extremely amazing! She goes beyond to see that all details are covered and everything is done correctly. Autumn is so nice to take the time to explain the process of everything going on to me as they happen. I highly recommend her and the Law Office of Puget Sound.
