  • Cell Phone Fines Increase in 2014
    January 20 2014

    I have written about cell phone usage in the past and urged everyone to refrain from using a hand held cell phone or texting while driving as it is unsafe and the cause of many of accidents.  Accident statistics gathered by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) verify that distracted driving is responsible for a large percentage of accidents in Oregon.  Texting while driving is dangerous and we all know we shouldn’t do it but there is still a large number of drivers out there who still do it anyway.  In fact, recent surveys reveal Oregon drivers know it is against the law and also know it is dangerous but nevertheless, continue texting while driving.

    The State of Oregon has seen an increase in this usage and as result a new law is changing the violation from a class D violation to a Class C.  The minimum fine is $142 and the maximum fine is $500 per violation.

    The next time you are driving and are tempted to text or use a hand held cell phone, resist the urge and avoid a large ticket and the possibility of hurting someone or yourself in an accident caused by distracted driving.

  • Gregory Zeuthen Selected To Best Lawyers In America

    Greg Zeuthen Selected by his peers for inclusion in
    the Best Lawyers in America© 2014

    Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers® has become universally regarded as
    the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because inclusion by Best Lawyers is based on
    an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly
    five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because
    lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is
    considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the
    most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
