1996 - 1999
I'm a partner attorney with the law firm of Slinde & Nelson LLC in Portland, Oregon (a Vancouver, Washington office is coming soon). I have been practicing law since 1999. and I am licensed to do so in Oregon and Washington and regularly appear before courts in both states, and particularly Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties in Oregon, and Clark and Cowlitz counties in Washington.
My practice concentrates on civil litigation, legal advice, and disputes relating to real estate, construction, banks, homeowners associations, businesses, and individuals. This includes: construction contract drafting, review and advice; representation of contractors and owners regarding construction defects and other disputes relating to the construction industry; construction lien preparation and foreclosure; commercial contract disputes and breach of contract actions; complex commercial litigaiton; bank litigation; debt collections, including lawsuits, garnishments and property seizures; judgment liens; judicial and non-judicial real estate foreclosures (serving as attorney for the lender and/or as the foreclosure trustee); real estate contract litigation; adverse possession, boundary line, fence line and other neighbor disputes; express and implied easements; matters involving restrictive covenants and height restrictions; nuisances; representation of homeowners associations and enforcement of the HOA's Conditions, Covenants & Restrictions (CCRs); representation of commercial landlords involved in disputes with tenants, including evictions; and other disputes and issues between individuals, businesses, shareholders, HOAs, neighbors, property owners, banks, construction contractors, and/or material suppliers.
When not practicing law, I enjoy spending time with my wife and four year old daughter, our boston terrier Ruby Sue, and friends. I also enjoy spending time outdoors in the great pacific northwest outdoors, whitewater rafting, skiing, hiking, and golfing.
