Community Stewardship

We are proud of the number of our attorneys who have given significantly of their talents in the public sector during their careers, and that history has become a key part of our firm culture. HLGR attorneys include two former Oregon Deputy Attorneys General, two former Oregon Solicitors General and four former Oregon Assistant Attorneys General.

Additionally, our attorneys regularly contribute to charitable and non-profit organizations with their time, money, and expertise. From promoting professional ethics to supporting families and children in need, we understand that we are not only stewards of our clients’ interests, we are stewards of our communities. Everyone at HLGR plays a part in making our communities better by donating their time and/or talents, but here are a few examples of our contributions.
