Jackie Kamins is a triple threat – experienced litigator, accomplished writer, and formidable negotiator. She is a key team member on many of the firm’s most complex cases, particularly in our government and appellate practice groups.

Before joining Markowitz Herbold, Jackie spent nearly fifteen years representing state and local governments. At Multnomah County, she served as Senior Assistant County Attorney handling both appeals and complex civil litigation in state and federal court. At the Oregon Department of Justice (DOJ), she served in the Special Litigation Unit, which handles the most complex and significant cases facing the State of Oregon.

Jackie brings her persuasive writing abilities to the firm. In addition to briefing several hundred cases in state and federal court, she has published articles in New York Times Sunday Magazine, Washington Post op/ed, and The Oregonian op/ed section.

Jackie excels not only at persuading the courts to rule in favor of her clients, but also reaching an effective compromise when it’s the right result. While at the DOJ, she negotiated an agreement that made Oregon one of the first states in the country to cover transgender health care services for its employees.

Following graduation from law school, Jackie clerked for the Honorable Kim McLane Wardlaw for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and was an associate at an international law firm in Washington, D.C. Before law school, Jackie spent several years working on the Senate Judiciary Committee vetting judicial nominations, drafting legislation, and writing persuasive speeches.
