Lisa Maxfield

       Lisa Maxfield is the rare advocate recognized as a ‘lawyer’s lawyer’, technical and esoteric but with the humor and confidence to win over courtrooms, time and again.

       For over three decades, Lisa has been representing individuals and businesses facing investigation or charged with major crimes. She practices in federal courtrooms and state courthouses throughout Oregon and before regulatory agencies and professional licensing boards.

       She is creative and committed, qualities that put her clients and jurors at ease during difficult moments. Her attention to detail is widely admired. For Lisa, the greatest sense of accomplishment comes from exceeding a client’s expectations. The ability to resolve an investigation quietly and successfully is a matter of pride, but she never hesitates to try the cases that should be tried.

       Lisa has tried hundreds of cases to Oregon juries, amassing an enviable track record in the most demanding cases - sex abuse, murder, fraud, drug conspiracies, public corruption, and environmental violations. She speaks regularly in Oregon and nationally on selecting the best jurors, challenging the introduction of problematic evidence, talking to children, taking advantage of technology in trial, and handling expert witnesses effectively.

       Other lawyers hire Lisa as a consultant when bringing difficult constitutional or evidentiary challenges. Many of her cases are ones in which another attorney has hired her to serve as lead counsel.

       At 33, she didn't fully grasp an older partner’s advice, ‘Age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill.’

Today, she does.
