Hart Wagner was established in 1992 by a group of trial lawyers as a unique boutique litigation firm dedicated to defending select clients facing significant lawsuits and claims.

As preeminent courtroom lawyers, they would establish one of the leading litigation defense firms in the Pacific Northwest with hard work, meticulous attention to detail, creativity and old fashioned grit.

Today, Hart Wagner has offices in both Portland and Central Oregon, where it proudly serves its valued clients with that same intensity and focus. The results speak for themselves. Hundreds of favorable jury verdicts, arbitration awards and important appellate victories later, the firm offers its clients experienced trial counsel to represent them in court or successfully resolve their cases.

Hart Wagner built its legacy around this question: “Who do you need on your side?” People answer “Hart Wagner” because they trust our skills and experience, and respect our dedication to delivering the very best service and results.


We believe in trusting, collaborative relationships.
For nearly three decades we have earned the respect of the legal community we
serve, including our clients, colleagues, and the courts.
Driven by excellence, we strive to provide winning results.

Diversity and Equity Statement

Since the firm was established in 1992, it has aimed to attract and retain attorneys, paralegals, legal assistants, and staff of all backgrounds.  The firm is committed to providing an open, welcoming and inclusive working environment for all employees.  Our clients recognize that the more diverse our workforce is, the better able we are to represent their interests and try cases in the communities throughout Oregon and Washington where we are engaged.

As a result of the firm’s hiring and mentoring efforts, over half of the firm’s partners are women.  We recognize that much more needs to be done.  To that end, the firm has established a Diversity and Inclusion Committee, which will make concrete efforts to further diversify our staff and create positive change by facilitating educational events, initiating dialogue, and increasing our collaboration and involvement with our communities of color.
