Anna is a litigator with experience representing individuals and businesses in a diverse range of disputes, including matters with contract, tort, antitrust, intellectual property, and constitutional law components.

 
Anna has first-chaired several jury trials in federal and state court, and has represented clients in bench trials, private arbitrations, mediations, and before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Representative experiences include:

 

  • Successfully defending a small business in a jury trial involving breach of contract and fraud claims, resulting in an award of attorney fees to her client.
  • Winning summary judgment, in both state and federal court, on behalf of a large regional health care provider.
  • Prevailing in an appeal before the Ninth Circuit involving Fair Credit Billing Act and Unlawful Debt Collection Practices Act claims.
  • In March 2012, Anna served as a special prosecutor in the Multnomah District Attorney's office. During the course of the month, she completed several jury trials and bench trials, as well as numerous court hearings. 

Anna taught first-year torts as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Oregon in 2007.  Prior to joining the firm, Anna was a law clerk for The Honorable Alfred T. Goodwin, on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. 

 

She is part of a team of lawyers that was awarded the Multnomah Bar Association Pro Bono Award of Merit in 2007 for federal litigation on behalf of the Oregon Law Center and Legal Aid Services of Oregon.    

 

In 2012, Anna was recognized as an "Up & Coming Lawyer" by the Daily Journal of Commerce (Portland, Oregon).
