Professional Leadership Our lawyers' achievements in their profession demonstrate our dedication to the practice of law according to the highest standards. Cosgrave is proud to count among our ranks a pro tem judge on the Multnomah County Circuit Court. We're also leaders in the Bar. Among our lawyers are several former presidents of the Multnomah Bar Association and the Oregon Association of Defense Counsel. Another is past president of the Owen M. Panner American Inns of Court. Still others have served on or chaired various Oregon State Bar committees, sections, and commissions, and as delegates to the Oregon State Bar House of Delegates and the American Bar Association House of Delegates. Even with all this volunteer activity, we still find time to speak at continuing legal education seminars and write for various law-related publications. Peer Recognition The legal community recognizes our accomplishments. Four Cosgrave partners were selected by their peers for inclusion in the current edition of Best Lawyers in America, and two of our lawyers have been honored with the Multnomah Bar Association's Professionalism Award. Community Service We're not just lawyers - we're also Oregonians. We love the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the lifestyle it offers, and we do our part to protect both through community service. The firm's programs include charitable donations, pro bono legal work, a scholarship fund, and volunteer activities. Individual service is also encouraged. Cosgrave lawyers and staff serve as officers, directors, and active members in diverse organizations that support our community's economic and social well-being. Our firm culture reflects the Oregon lifestyle. Although we have the latest in communications technology, we still prefer a face-to-face, first-name relationship with our clients and colleagues.
