PORTLAND, Ore. (March 1, 2023) Tonkon Torp partner Michael Willes has been elected Secretary of Virginia Garcia Memorial Foundation Board of Directors. The Foundation provides fundraising and community relations support to Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center, ensuring the continuation of vital primary care, dental, and pharmacy services to more than 45,000 people in Washington and Yamhill counties.
“I am proud to continue supporting the Health Center and the important role that it plays in the community,” said Willes. “The organization is undertaking impressive projects for every community it serves – from the capital campaign to build the Newberg Wellness Center and increase access to health and wellness services throughout the area, to an innovative workforce development initiative designed to create opportunities for employee growth while addressing the hiring crisis afflicting health care providers.”
Willes is a member of Tonkon Torp’s Litigation Department. He represents clients in a broad range of business matters, including contract, trade-secret, and securities litigation. He is one of a handful of Oregon attorneys who have tried a nine-figure federal jury trial.
