Retired | Portland

Licensed in

After 33 years with the firm, Paul Xochihua retired from the practice of law at the end of December 2021.  Paul will continue to share his knowledge, experience, and sense of humor with his colleagues and friends.

Paul’s litigation practice included defense of businesses and individuals in cases involving personal injury, property damage, business claims, malpractice, and more.  Paul tried cases to verdict before juries and judges in Oregon and Washington, at state and federal levels, including several very large value cases.  The matters Paul handled arose from all manner of circumstances, under many legal theories.

Paul also provided services as a mediator and arbitrator, and enjoyed that work as well.  Regardless of whether his role was as an advocate or a neutral, he provided a steady hand, excellent client service, and has been a true professional.

Paul’s colleagues continue to provide legal services.  If you need legal assistance, please contact Daniel Hasson.
