Rating: 10 Lawyer Rating - 10 out of 10
Laura Fine is one of the most talented attorneys I have met during my 20+ year career. She is highly analytical, detail oriented, diligent and emotionally intelligent. She works every possible angle to get cases dismissed and keep private matters under the radar and out of the press. She is a ferocious advocate and accomplished trial lawyer. She is quite literally a model attorney. View More

Q. Please rate this lawyer on the following:

Laura knows everything there is to know about Oregon criminal law. She is my go to person for all thorny legal and ethical issues.

Legal Analysis: Excellent

She is a highly effective legal writer and has a reputation as one of the best lawyers in the state amongst appellate attorneys who have read transcripts of her trials

Communication Skills: Excellent

Laura is a highly effective communicator who knows how to adjust her style depending on who she is talking to and is more persuasive than virtually anyone I know. She is clear, direct, honest, and kind. A difficult combination!

Ethics and Professionalism: Excellent

Laura is highly ethical and works extremely hard, all the time, in a field where it is all too common for people to burn out, lose interest and cut corners. I've spoken with many past clients and have always heard that she was scrupulously honest and fair in all her dealings with them. The one time she represented me, she was endlessly kind and did not accept payment.

In addition to being a superb attorney, Laura is an amazing mentor. I have lost count of the lawyers I've met that she has advised, helped, and trained.

She really believes in the work and she is an inspiration and source of energy in a field where burn out is all to common.
