Landlord and Tenant

Scanlon Sharp LLP is familiar with the state laws and city ordinances protecting renters, and available relief from illegal evictions or rent increases. We are knowledgeable about civil remedies for tenants who have suffered injury or economic harm from the actions or negligence of landlords.
Portland Based Small Business Lawyers
Even careful and experienced business owners can find themselves in contractual disputes with their partners, vendors, or competitors. The best tactic for handling a business dispute depends in large part on the relationship between the involved parties. In certain circumstances, disputes can arise between businesses that have extensive and on-going relationships, in which case aggressive litigation may not be the best option.

In other circumstances, the future of a business or company may be at stake, in which case the situation calls for the most aggressive litigation measures available. Scanlon Sharp LLP attorneys understand that decisions in the context of business disputes and litigation must take into consideration broader business concerns.

In each matter, whether it involves the formation of a business entity, preparation of contracts and agreements, or if necessary, litigation between businesses, we customize our approach to address the unique circumstances and issues of each matter and our client's ultimate goals.
Attorneys Experienced in Conflict Resolution and Litigation
While formed in 2017, the attorneys at Scanlon Sharp LLP have each been practicing law for more than a decade. The firm has the ability to effectively assist its clients in all aspects of civil litigation from torts, contract, business and neighbor disputes, to fraud, unfair business practices and consumer issues. Our attorneys are skilled litigators who can advocate for their clients' interests, whether in the context of communications with the opposing parties or before the court and are prepared to take a case all the way to judgment, if necessary. At the same time, we recognize that litigation can be both expensive and stressful, and whenever possible, look for reasonable alternatives that will satisfy our client's interests.
Nursing Home
Elder Abuse Attorneys
Unfortunately, our loved ones can become more vulnerable as they age, making them more susceptible to becoming victims of elder abuse. Because they often require assistance for their basic needs, it is common to utilize third parties capable of providing specific services, such as nursing home caretakers and financial advisers. Sadly, some of those who we trust to care for our aging loved ones take advantage of and mistreat them. Elder abuse can take place in many forms, from financial abuse by someone in a position of trust (such as identity theft or fraudulent co-signing) to outright intentional physical abuse and neglect (bedsores, dehydration, malnutrition). Whether the matter concerns physical or financial abuse, the attorneys at Scanlon Sharp LLP are prepared to hold those responsible for committing abuse accountable under Oregon's elder abuse protection laws.
