About The Firm

Originally founded in Hillsboro, Oregon by Marv Garland, the firm has been helping Oregonians with personal guidance and workable solutions for nearly 40 years. 

We pride ourselves on our ability to provide competitive rates while providing highly experienced, skilled, professional services. We make fixed fee arrangements whenever possible. Our clients know ahead of time what they will be charged and we don't bill clients in excess of our agreed upon fees without first communicating with our clients. You will never get a shocking legal bill in the mail from us.


Whether you need help with a single issue or a range of complex issues, our attorneys are prepared to meet your legal needs. 


Areas of Expertise

Our attorneys are trial lawyers who are experienced in real estate law, business law, estate planning and probate law. We can represent clients in state or federal courts in Oregon and can take your case as far as it needs to go. We also handle routine real estate transactions such as representing sellers who are selling a home without the assistance of a realtor. We have strategic partnerships with dozens of Oregon realtors and title companies who refer their clients to the firm for residential real estate needs. Our experience in foreclosure defense litigation in state and federal courts is extensive and gives us the edge in this complex and changing field of law. The firm's lead attorney, Ben Knaupp, has represented Oregonians in over 50 foreclosure cases, 120 short sales and has met with over 500 homeowners for individual counseling on their foreclosure problems.
