Tenant

Based out of Portland, Oregon, Jennie L. Clark, Attorney at Law, handles Tenant cases in the greater Portland Area.

My initial consultation rate is $100.00 for up to one hour and $200.00/hour thereafter for landlord tenant cases if prepaid; Otherwise, 300.00/hour.  If appropriate, I sometimes write a letter within the first consultation to address issues.  After the initial consultation, I inform my clients whether or not I am willing to work on an hourly or the terms of a contingency fee basis.
