Who We Are

Our main office is in the Fox Tower in downtown Portland. Are you coming by bus or MAX? We’re one block from the transit mall and the Pioneer Square MAX stops. Are you driving here? The Fox Tower has the largest garage in downtown Portland (enter on Taylor Street just past Broadway), and we validate parking for our clients.

We do things differently from our larger competitors. For example, we don’t charge you for routine copying. We don’t charge you for domestic long distance telephone tolls. We don't charge you for ordinary postage. These costs are part of our overhead, just as they are part of yours, and they're covered by our fees. As our principal says, “The post office doesn’t charge you for lawyers. Why should your lawyer charge you for postage?”

At Alterman Law Group, you talk directly with the lawyers who are working for you, instead of with a department head who may know little about your matter. Your communications with us are more efficient and effective. For our part, we strive to write to you in plain terms so that our advice is clear and useful to you.
