Keith Dozier has practiced law in a variety of settings, having worked as an associate at the Portland law firm Griffin McCandlish and later as a partner in the Portland law firm Piucci & Dozier. He opened his current office in 2006 because he wanted to provide specialized legal services to his clients in a streamlined manner.

Each case that we agree to take is afforded all of the resources needed to be fully prepared for trial if a reasonable settlement cannot be reached. Only reputable medical and technical experts are used to support each client's needs. The most important component of this mix, however, is the individual client. Each case is carefully evaluated to ensure that the injured party is trustworthy and that their legal claims have merit.

Professional
Keith is admitted to practice law in all Oregon state and federal civil courts, having tried cases to verdict in both systems. He has litigated against defendants of all sizes including the federal government and international corporations. His efforts have resulted in numerous multi-million dollar recoveries. However, Keith and those who work with him are committed to helping the injured whether their case is complex or not. What matters is the honesty of the client and their sincere need for help.

You will not see us advertising on television, through the mail, or having a large ad in the Yellow Pages. Instead, our clients typically come to us by referral from other lawyers and people we have helped in the past. We never solicits clients, though we do offer free consultation to anyone concerned about whether they need legal counsel.
