You Have A Right To Justice

Whether you or a loved one suffered physical injury or a violation of your workplace rights, you have a right to justice. We are proud of our decades of success representing Oregonians and others throughout the United States who were harmed by wrongdoing.

We take on the biggest insurance companies and most powerful corporations to get the compensation our clients deserve. Our expertise and results are well known, as is our reputation for vigorous, professional representation. Because of that, we are frequently asked by other attorneys to associate on their cases, or handle them altogether

Contact us today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Employment Discrimination & Whistleblowing
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Motor Vehicle Collisions
  • Defective Drugs and Devices
  • Civil Rights
  • Products Liability

Our injury work is typically performed on a contingency fee basis. You will not owe us any money unless we recover compensation for you. If you have suffered a physical injury or lost a loved one as a result of wrongdoing, call 541-837-1977 today to arrange your initial consultation.

Attorney Keith D. Semple

Since 2003, Keith Semple has represented injured workers in Oregon workers’ compensation claims.  In that time, he has represented well over a thousand injured workers in every corner of the state, and in all lines of work.  Keith pursued a career in law so he could fight for the rights of people who could otherwise be easily outgunned by employers or insurers.  

In 2010, Keith added his expertise in workers’ compensation to our team of established attorneys with generations of experience in complex litigation involving catastrophic injury, products liability, and medical negligence. Our combined experience and resources will ensure that every potential claim is considered and every route to recovery is explored.

Keith was raised in rural Illinois. His upbringing in the company of hard working people has given him a sincere and plain spoken approach to helping his clients understand the often complex legal issues involved in their case.    

In addition to representing his clients in their individual cases, Keith has become a leading voice at the legislature for the rights of injured workers and reform of the workers’ compensation system. For years, Keith has monitored all the policy developments in the workers’ compensation arena, and has helped harness and coordinate the efforts of those who support injured workers.  For this work, Keith was honored with the 2020 Doug Swanson Outstanding Workers’ Compensation Attorney Award by the prior recipients of that award.  Keith’s engagement on these issues helps him stay abreast of any changes or developments in the law, sometimes even before they take effect.
