About This Firm

Our law firm is renowned, successful, and sought after. We try landmark cases. We get results. Our case loads reflect our rigorous selection process and courtroom success. We focus primarily on the following Law Specialty Areas:

- Catastrophic Injuries

- Medical Negligence

-Sexual Abuse & Exploitation

-Bad Faith Insurance Litigation

On July 6, 2004, in response to the many sexual abuse claims facing the Catholic Church, the Archdiocese of Portland became the first diocese in America to file for Chapter 11 protection in bankruptcy court. That was the only way they could avoid facing our firm in court. Jury selection in C.B. v The Archdiocese of Portland, et al. was scheduled to begin that morning. We were ready...

Remember the movie Erin Brockovich, starring Julia Roberts? The prominent Los Angeles firm of Girardi & Keese handled the complex litigation documented in the film. When Girardi & Keese needed an Oregon attorney to represent their injured client, they turned to The Barton Law Firm Our office was the first to successfully file, serve, and state a legal cause of action against the Vatican for sexual abuse of a minor. See John V. Doe v. Holy See, et al., 434 F.Supp.2d 925 (D.Or 2006)

And it was our office that successfully sued Ma Anand Sheela when the Rashneeshees took over the Eastern Oregon town of Antelope in 1985.

This isn't the surprising part. Given our track record and reputation, what some people find surprising is that while we have a national practice, we're also small enough to guarantee our clients an unprecedented level of contact with our attorneys. All cases at The Barton Law Firm are handled and tried by both attorneys, and every client gets our joint and undivided attention. No cases are handed off to junior associates-we all take shared responsibility for every step of every case. We come to you and work to accommodate your needs as conveniently as possible. This may be an unusual way to practice law today, but it's our way and it works.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.


Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
