Oregon employment law is all we do.

Jim Vogele and Joel Christiansen are Oregon attorneys focused exclusively on employment law. We practice throughout the state for local and non-local clients. We primarily represent employees and occasionally provide litigation and government agency defense services to forward-thinking small businesses. We accept wrongful termination, retaliation/whistleblowing, discriminationwage and hour, medical leave, and noncompete/trade secret cases.

A graduate of Harvard Law School, Jim W. Vogele is licensed to practice law in Oregon, Montana, and California. Jim has extensive complex litigation experience and also frequently advises employees in non-litigated matters.

Joel Christiansen is an experienced employment law attorney with a broad depth of practical knowledge in representing individual employees and small business employers in employment-related transactional, litigation, and dispute resolution matters.
