Welcome to NW Employer Advice

Welcome to the NW Employer Advice blog – the blog that provides relevant and timely employment law content for Oregon and Washington employers that merely serve as guidelines for employer compliance.

I am an attorney at Wyse Kadish LLP, in Portland, Oregon. I represent businesses and employers throughout Oregon and Washington.  My clients are in the business they are in because they enjoy what they do.  I partner with them and strive to bring value and meaningful assistance to help them meet their employment needs.

I always hold my focus on my clients’ goals.  My commitment to superior customer service separates me from my competition.  My clients vary in size: non-profit, small employers and large employers.  I collaborate with every one of them to provide counsel on how to prevent and manage workplace legal issues to avoid or mitigate any possible escalation into litigation.   Sometimes it is necessary to defend claims and to initiate litigation to protect the business interests of my clients, and when those moment arise, we work together to dig deep into the relevant issues so that my clients can make the best informed decision.

For more information about me and about Wyse Kadish, LLP, please see our firm’s website.

Every workplace and employment situation is unique.  Employment issues must be carefully examined and analyzed before making a decision that impacts the workplace or the terms and conditions of a person’s employment.  Please contact me, or legal counsel of your choosing, for information related to your specific questions or circumstances, or for any other employment matter or litigation.
