Janet Neuman Joins Oregon State Parks Foundation Board of Trustees
Tonkon Torp attorney Janet Neuman has joined the Board of Trustees for the Oregon State Parks Foundation. The Foundation raises funds and builds partnerships to restore and create new facilities and sites in the Oregon state park system. Neuman’s service on the board is an ideal complement to her legal practice, which focuses on water law and environmental and natural resources.
"I am pleased to help our state parks expand their facilities, access, and educational programming,” shared Neuman. “I have spent lots of time in the parks myself and I am excited to help strengthen them for others to enjoy."
Tonkon Torp has a long tradition of supporting the Oregon State Parks Foundation; one of the firm’s founding partners, the late Brian Booth, played a key role in its establishment (then called the Oregon State Parks Trust) in 1995. Neuman is the seventh Tonkon Torp lawyer to serve on the Foundation's Board of Trustees.
Neuman is Senior Counsel with Tonkon Torp’s Water Law and Environmental & Natural Resources practice groups. She is considered one of the foremost water law specialists in Oregon and is a nationally recognized water law scholar. She represents clients in a variety of water and natural-resource-related matters, including obtaining, transferring, and protecting water rights for both groundwater and surface water.
