Joel Newey’s practice focuses on construction defect, insurance defense, business development, and real estate matters. Before joining Gillaspy & Rhode, Joel represented area homeowner and condominium associations in all matters, including collecting assessments, reviewing and drafting governing documents, and enforcement of the associations’ rules and regulations. Due to a short term Covid detour, Joel worked in family law for a time, gaining valuable experience in client relations and complex legal issues that permeate the volatile area of domestic relations. Prior to attending law school at Lewis & Clark and becoming an attorney, Joel was a restaurant manager with experience from fine dining to local indie hotspots. Beside attending law school, Joel received his Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of New Mexico, graduating summa cum laude. A native New Mexican, Joel relocated to Portland in 2010, and is the proud father of two. He enjoys rooting on the Blazers and is hopeful he will one day attend an MLB game in Portland.
