Our Attorneys


Our attorneys bring a wealth and breadth of experience to the firm that ensures the highest quality representation for all clients. The firm’s principals, Betsy Gillaspy and Liz Rhode, have litigated, arbitrated and resolved literally thousands of cases involving construction, personal injury, property damage and general civil disputes.

We are licensed to practice in both state and federal courts in Washington and Oregon. Our offices in Oregon and Washington allow us to fully serve clients across both states. With diverse backgrounds, experiences and interests, our attorneys have represented clients in construction, personal injury, property damage, toxic tort, first party property and fire, consumer protection, and land use and insurance matters. In addition, we frequently draft and review contracts, leases and other agreements for various small businesses.

Betsy and Liz manage all cases. However, we pride ourselves on appropriate use of staff and junior attorneys so as to provide the most cost-effective service possible.
