It’s official! The Dumas Law Group will open its doors for business on March 31, 2014. (April 1 would have been more logical, but I didn’t want anyone thinking it was an April Fools prank!) My new contact information is below. The website isn’t up yet, but soon, we hope. We are based in Portland, but handle cases across the country.
After seven years of working with Kelly Clark on sex abuse cases – starting with his very first case against the Boy Scouts that we took to trial and won a $20 million verdict – it is time for me to move on to my next challenge. When Kelly passed away rather unexpectedly before Christmas, the loss of him as my partner made me really think about the work I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it.
The answer was a smaller firm, focusing only on litigation. My associate attorney, Ashley Vaughn, and I will continue to represent survivors of child abuse – those who are now adults as well as those who are still under 18 – in cases against the perpetrators and the trusted institutions that allowed the abuse to happen. We will continue to work on cases across the country, working closely with our network of skilled attorneys in other states.
Drawing on my 22 years of experience with commercial litigation, we also will continue to represent small businesses and individuals with civil lawsuits, employment claims, real estate matters, and other business disputes. We also have the flexibility to handle certain personal injury and professional malpractice claims.
Both Ashley and I will be marketing like crazy to get this enterprise off the ground. We appreciate your referrals and are open to associating with other attorneys on cases.
