About Damon Petticord

I am a civil litigator.   My objective is to help clients successfully assert claims in negotiations, mediation, arbitration, and in court.  As I see it, bringing morally good claims and defending against bad claims is part of my obligation as a good attorney.  For me law is about helping the people I represent.  It is about carefully listening to what my clients have to say, realistically evaluating the facts, and helping them achieve good and just outcomes.

I earned my Masters in Business Administration from the University of Oregon School of Business  concurrently with my law degree from the University of Oregon School of Law in 1996.  I bring a business oriented perspective to my practice. 

I have been a member of the Oregon State Bar since 1996 and a member of the Washington State Bar since 2002.  I am a member of the Business Litigation, Consumer Law, and Motor Vehicle sections of The Oregon Trial Lawyers Association.  I also serve as a court appointed arbitrator for the Oregon Circuit Court for Washington County, Oregon. I have been a delegate for the Oregon State Bar and a member of its pro bono committee.  I have regularly donated my time for consumer rights causes and to help victims of domestic violence in contested restraining order hearings.
