Hillsboro, Oregon

Hillsboro , just west of Portland, is Oregon’s fifth-largest city and the seat of Washington County. Occupying the heart of the Tualatin Valley, Hillsboro has emerged as the hub of Oregon’s high-tech industries (the city was the birthplace of computer chip-maker Intel), earning it the nickname ‘Silicon Forest.’ The Valley itself has been inhabited since pre-historic times and the modern city works hard to honor its Native American roots. Hillsboro also lies near the heart of the region served by Kaplan Law LLC. Kaplan Law’s office at the KOIN Center, Suite #1111 at 222 SW Columbia Street in Portland, Oregon is the place to turn for a sympathetic ear when you feel your rights have been violated, or that the legal system is not offering the justice it promises. Call (503) 226-3844 to schedule an appointment.

Kaplan Law LLC specializes in personal injury law with a practice focusing on auto accidents (especially those resulting from distracted driving). In 2010, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation, the city of Hillsboro alone experienced:

  • 1,112 auto crashes, resulting in…
  • 3 fatalities, and…
  • More than 800 injuries.

Distracted driving only recently became an offense in Oregon. As a result, data on these specific types of auto accidents are not available, but the fact that the legislature has moved to ban the offense is an indicator of how seriously driving while texting has come to be viewed.

As the seat of Washington County, Hillsboro is also the headquarters of Oregon’s 20th Judicial District. Detailed, often essential, knowledge of this and other courts throughout our region is one of the key assets that Kaplan Law LLC offers clients, along with the personal attention that can often be lacking in larger firms. Kaplan Law LLC’s detailed knowledge of Hillsboro, Washington County and their legal systems is a crucial asset for clients considering any case related to auto accidents, personal injuries, or wrongful death claims.

Kaplan Law LLC offers all clients an initial free consultation during which you and Matthew D. Kaplan can go over all of the basic information concerning your case and consider the best ways to proceed. Our goal is always to help ordinary citizens defend their rights, and to see that victims and their families obtain justice and a full recovery.

Kaplan Law LLC is conveniently located just east of Hillsboro in downtown Portland at the KOIN Center, Suite #1111 at 222 SW Columbia Street between SW 2 nd and 3rd Avenues. We are just south of the Hawthorne Bridge, only two blocks from the beautiful Columbia River and SW Naito Parkway.
