Mr. Sumner has been practicing law since 2000. He started his career with Rosenthal & Greene, PC, a highly respected plaintiffs firm.

He appeared in a variety of Oregon trial courts, the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

He moved to Abbott & Prange/Paris, PC, an insurance defense firm after about 4 years. He defended insured from a wide variety of claims including accounting malpractice, mental health professional malpractice, premises liability, automobile claims, herbicide application issues, and defending accountants against ethics allegations. The case exposure ranged from minor automobile claims to death cases. He also obtained his license in Washington in 2005. He appeared in a variety of Oregon and Washington trial courts, the Oregon Court of Appeals, the Oregon Supreme Court, the U.S. District Court for the Districts of Oregon and the Western District of Washington, and before administrative law judges for the Board of Accountancy.

Mr. Sumner then joined Scheer & Zehnder and opened their Oregon office. His practice there focused on construction defect claims, primarily on behalf of the general contractor in large construction projects. He appeared in a variety of trial courts in Oregon and Washington and the Oregon Court of Appeals.

After opening the Scheer & Zehnder Oregon office, he joined The Rickles Law Firm. While there, he defended automobile dealers from a variety of claims including employment cases and premises liability claims. He also worked on construction defect claims and did some debt collection.

Sumner Law, PC, opened April 15, where Mr. Sumner utilizes his wide experience to represent clients in a variety of claims from bringing and defending personal injury claims to business litigation.
