The Law Firm of Sara L. Gabin, P.C., Attorney at Law
My name is Sara L. Gabin. Thank you for visiting my law firm.
I represent clients throughout Oregon, but primarily in Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington and Yamhill Counties.
I have been a member of the Oregon Bar since 1981. I graduated from the University of Michigan in 1978 with a BA in Economics, and from Willamette University in 1981 with a Juris Doctor (JD).
In addition to the Oregon State Bar and Federal District Court for the District of Oregon, I am a member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR), the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA), the Oregon Workers’ Compensation Association (OWCA), and Oregon Women Lawyers (OWLS).
My clients are generally honest, hard working people who have become too ill to work, have been injured on a job, or who have hurt by someone else’s mistake. When they attempt to claim the benefits or recovery they deserve, all too often they encounter bureaucratic indifference or roadblocks, employer hostility, or insurance company resistance or pressure. They are often without income or other resources and have run out of ways to help themselves. When a client comes to see me, my job is to listen to the client’s situation, give candid advice, and if I am able to help, act as fast as possible without sacrificing thorough case preparation.
At least half of my clientele are referrals from former clients or their friends and relatives.
Geographical Areas I Serve
Most of my clients reside in Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington Counties, or in the Portland Metropolitan area generally, and also in Yamhill County. I also represent clients who reside in Hood River and Wasco Counties, and also in Clatsop County.
My Commitment to You
When you are my client, you come first and it is my privilege to serve you. You own your case. My job is to navigate your case through the procedural and adversarial hurdles until you receive the best recovery possible.
I do not run a “mill” with thousands of cases and overworked staff. Your case is not part of a “percentage” operation that is just about winning some – losing some. It is my mission and professional responsibility to give the highest level of service and to give each case one-hundred percent of the attention it requires. And that begins with my screening your case as carefully as possible from the moment we first speak. After you hire me, whenever you call, you will reach someone who remembers you and knows what your case is about.
As I navigate your case through the legal mazes, I will keep you posted along the way. Because you have no time to lose, I will proceed as fast as possible without sacrificing case preparation.
I have learned that no two cases are alike. All cases have strong and weak points. You deserve to hear only my candid opinion about your case. After listening to you describe your injury or disability, and after reviewing the medical evidence, I will tell you “how I see it” and advise you accordingly.
I invite you to learn more about my practice areas.
Contact me at 503 620-3171 or at email@example.com for a free consultation about your Social Security Disability, Supplemental Security Income, Personal Injury or Workers' Compensation claim. After we chat, I will have a fairly good idea whether I can help you. If I think I can help, I will invite you to schedule a FREE in-person appointment. Then, we can interview one another before agreeing to form an attorney/client relationship.
Fees for my time are strictly contingent. That means I get paid only if you receive benefits or a recovery. Fees are set by law according to the type of case and we would sign a fee agreement that specifies how fees are paid. I invite you to learn more about fees by visiting my page on Fees.
