Portland litigation firm Markowitz, Herbold, Glade & Mehlhaf is pleased to announce that Jeff Edelson, an attorney and shareholder with the firm, has been named to the Board of Directors of The Campaign for Equal Justice, a non-profit organization.
The Campaign for Equal Justice was established in 1991 by Oregon lawyers to ensure that equal access to justice becomes a reality for all Oregonians. The organization supports 100 legal aid attorneys in 19 communities.
MHGM and its employees have supported the Campaign since its inception in 1991 through contributions to its annual fund drive, and to the Barrie Herbold Memorial Fund which provides an endowment for the organization.
Edelson, a former legal aid lawyer, now represents individuals and corporate clients in business, employment, real estate, construction, and contract disputes with an emphasis on competitive injury, trade secrets, and other business torts and contracts.
