Pattillo Paralegal Services offers top-level legal support to Oregon attorneys in markets both large and small.

Owner Laura Pattillo specializes in assisting litigators bound for civil trial or ADR. She also coordinates the services of collaborative professionals who provide specialized technical support for trial.

Laura's lifelong love with Oregon started in Eugene, where she lived and worked for 10 years in the 1970s. She moved to California in the mid-1980's to be closer to family. Laura returned to Oregon in 2020, this time to West Linn. Laura has a background in Liberal Arts but became interested in litigation after working for a San Luis Obispo law firm shortly after she moved to California. She has worked as a paralegal since graduating from UC Santa Barbara’s paralegal program in 1985.

Laura's initial work involved estate plans, probate, corporations and LLCs. She later added litigation training and experience to her resume, working with large law firms in major markets such as San Francisco. Laura's hands-on experience includes general torts, real estate, construction defects, estate litigation, business, labor/employment, and personal injury.

Laura worked as a staff paralegal before launching her own business in 1999 to help consumers with estate plans and attorneys with all aspects of litigation support.
