Jovanna L. Patrick
As an attorney for the past 9 years, I pride myself on empowering my clients by helping them understand the legal system and by looking for creative solutions to legal issues. I became an attorney to give a legal voice to people who may not otherwise have an avenue to vindicate a legal wrong. By helping make positive changes in the lives of my clients, we increase access to justice for all Oregonians.
I began working for the firm in 2007, and became a partner in 2019. My practice focuses primarily on workplace injuries. I also represent clients in automobile accidents, personal injuries, and legal malpractice. I am proficient in Spanish and represent many non-English speaking clients.
I graduated from Northwestern School of Law at Lewis and Clark, cum laude, in 2010. I attended Lewis and Clark College as an undergraduate, graduating in 2005 with a BA in History and Communication, summa cum laude, and a minor in Latin American Studies. I received the Super Lawyers Rising Star Award, 2014-2020, and the 2015 Martindale-Hubbell Client Distinction Award. I am admitted to all courts in Oregon and routinely represent clients in state court, federal court, and before the Workers’ Compensation Board.
I have deep roots in Oregon, my great-grandparents having settled in Eagle Creek, Oregon as pioneers who traveled the Oregon Trail. I live in the Portland area with my husband and our cats.
I believe in being engaged in the legal community. I am an active member of the:
- Oregon State Bar
- Multnomah Bar Association
- Oregon Trial Lawyers Association, Rising Star Guardian of Social Justice
- Oregon Women Lawyers
- Oregon Hispanic Bar Association
- Lewis & Clark Law School’s Mentor Program
I am a committee member or former member of:
Oregon State Bar Workers’ Compensation Executive Committee (2021 Chair, member since 2017)
Oregon State Bar Workers’ Compensation Access to Justice Subcommittee (2018-2020 Chair, member since 2012)
Oregon State Bar House of Delegates, Region 5 Delegate (2017-2020)
Oregon State Bar Public Service Advisory Committee (2017-2019)
Multnomah Bar Association Continued Legal Education Committee (2016-2019)
I really appreciated Ms. Patrick’s patience, care, and compassion when I came to her with my mess of a case. Her time and attention made all the difference for me.
Ms. Patrick took such great care of my daughter this past year with her motor vehicle accident. I knew she was in capable hands and knowing that helped me and the whole family deal with the events.
Ms. Patrick helped me through the whole ordeal of a claim, and helped me to move on and finally have closure. She took care of my issue so quickly, and had full integrity to listen to me in what I needed from the situation and to help me achieve that goal. I think a very small margin of attorneys would have actually done that.
She was amazing in explaining and following through on a plan of action. would recommend her to anyone in need.
