Patrick L. Hadlock

Corvallis, Oregon

I have practiced law in Corvallis since 1984 and lived here since 1985. I graduated from Reed College in Portland and the University of Oregon School of Law in Eugene. My family has been in the Willamette Valley for three generations so I feel a strong commitment and deep-seated affection for Oregon.

My practice emphasizes representing individuals who have either been injured in a motor vehicle collision or suffered injury due to the negligence of another. I also emphasize helping people who have questions or problems with insurance companies, insurance policies or insurance law.

I enjoy representing people involving in appeals to the Oregon Court of Appeals and Oregon Supreme Court. I have handled approximately 40 cases in the Oregon Court of Appeals in the fields of family law, personal injury and insurance law.

Although we are located in Corvallis, I have represented people and appeared in court in Benton, Linn, Marion, Lane, Polk, Multnomah, Washington and Douglas Counties. I am licensed to practice law in Oregon and to appear in the United States District Court and the United States Court of Appeals for Ninth Circuit.

My goal is always to get the best possible result for my client. The legal process can be daunting and stressful for a person not experienced with court procedures. My intent is to make the entire process understandable and as stress free as possible for my client.
