Justice in the Workplace
Oregon and federal laws regulate discrimination, harassment, accommodation, wrongful discharge and wage and hour claims. Whether you're an employee or a small business owner, partners C.J. Graves and Jackie Swanson can help ensure compliance with equal opportunity and workplace fairness laws.
Seek Remedies and Redress
Individuals who have been harmed by the intentional, reckless or negligent conduct of another may be able to seek redress and compensation through tort (or "personal injury") law. For example, battery/assault, inadequate supervision, slip & fall, and car accident claims commonly involve tort law. If the plaintiff establishes liability, a court may order the defendant to refrain from certain activities, or award the plaintiff monetary damages for harm (physical, emotional, financial, etc.) caused by the defendant.
Support for Sexual & Domestic Violence Survivors
Survivors of rape, sexual assault, domestic violence, child abuse and victims of crime have unique civil legal needs spanning across a range of practice areas, including education, employment, housing, family and tort law. At Graves & Swanson LLC, partners Jacqueline Swanson and C.J. Graves emphasize the provision of trauma -informed, holistic legal services to SA/DV victims, beyond the criminal justice system.
