Portland Personal Injury Attorneys
The Portland metropolitan area makes up the largest population center in Oregon. Due to population, our Portland personal injury attorneys see more cases originating from this area. The most common type of case our lawyers see is car accidents. It is also not uncommon for our lawyers to see medical malpractice cases, wrongful death cases, and defective products cases given the size of the metropolitan area.
When choosing a personal injury lawyer in Portland, it is important to find a lawyer that has the experience you need. Our lawyers at Nelson MacNeil Rayfield have more than 70 years of collective experience handling injury cases. And since our law firm only takes personal injury cases, our lawyers are able to concentrate on one area of law so we can provide the best possible representation to our clients.
Jim Nelson started his career in 1973 prosecuting numerous trial cases as a deputy district attorney. Jim then joined an Albany law firm where he concentrated on trial practice and for 11 years defended personal injury claims for insurance companies and major corporations. Jim has successfully tried hundreds of jury trials and has helped his clients settle thousands of personal injury claims.
Chris MacNeil has been handling cases in Oregon for over 25 years, specializing in serious personal injury cases arising out of motor vehicle collisions or defective products. Since 1986, Chris has focused on representing clients with claims against insurance companies, large corporations and government agencies. Chris works directly with his clients to achieve fair compensation for the injuries they have sustained.
After beginning his legal career in 2006, Dan Rayfield was nominated by his peers and selected by Super Lawyers Magazine in 2012, 2013 and 2014 as a “Rising Star” in Oregon. No more than 2.5% of attorneys under forty years old are selected to the prestigious Rising Stars list. Dan specializes in justice for individuals with personal injury claims going up against large corporations and insurance companies. In 2013, Dan became partner of Nelson & MacNeil, and the law firm evolved to Nelson MacNeil Rayfield. Since becoming a partner, the firm has expanded its practice across Oregon and has opened offices in Portland and Corvallis.
