On July 6, 2004, in response to the many sexual abuse claims facing the Catholic Church, the Archdiocese of Portland became the first diocese in America to file for Chapter 11 protection in bankruptcy court. That was the only way they could avoid facing our firm in court. Jury selection in C.B. v The Archdiocese of Portland, et al. was scheduled to begin that morning. We were ready...
Remember the movie Erin Brockovich, starring Julia Roberts? The prominent Los Angeles firm of Girardi & Keese handled the complex litigation documented in the film. When Girardi & Keese needed an Oregon attorney to represent their injured client, they turned to The Barton Law Firm Our office was the first to successfully file, serve, and state a legal cause of action against the Vatican for sexual abuse of a minor. See John V. Doe v. Holy See, et al., 434 F.Supp.2d 925 (D.Or 2006)
And it was our office that successfully sued Ma Anand Sheela when the Rashneeshees took over the Eastern Oregon town of Antelope in 1985.
This isn't the surprising part. Given our track record and reputation, what some people find surprising is that while we have a national practice, we're also small enough to guarantee our clients an unprecedented level of contact with our attorneys. All cases at The Barton Law Firm are handled and tried by both attorneys, and every client gets our joint and undivided attention. No cases are handed off to junior associates-we all take shared responsibility for every step of every case. We come to you and work to accommodate your needs as conveniently as possible. This may be an unusual way to practice law today, but it's our way and it works.
