Lawyers Representing Labor
Organizations and Employees
in Both the Private and Public Sectors

Offices of McKanna Bishop Joffe McKanna Bishop Joffe, LLP, is an Oregon law firm committed to promoting fair and equitable treatment of all employees under state and federal law. We established our firm in 2001 with a mission to provide high quality legal support to the labor movement, to labor unions, and to the employees they represent. Our attorneys represent labor unions and employees in both the public and private sectors. They advise labor unions on organizing and bargaining strategies, contract grievances, election matters, unfair labor practice complaints and many other issues that can arise in employment settings. If employers do not comply with the law or their labor contracts when they deal with unions and their members, our attorneys help the unions take appropriate legal action. They also provide training to union representatives and members regarding their legal rights under collective bargaining law and under state and federal statutes.

Our firm also advises, represents and advocates for employees on matters not covered by a union contract. Our attorneys provide advice on individual employment contracts, separation agreements, medical leave and disability issues and other ongoing employment matters. When employers terminate or take other adverse action against employees for illegal reasons such as discrimination or retaliation, our attorneys help the employees seek legal remedies. Our attorneys also speak at seminars, contribute to treatises and journals, and provide training to various groups on a wide array of employment-related topics.

Our offices are located in Portland, Oregon, but our attorneys handle cases throughout Oregon. All of our attorneys are admitted to practice in state and federal court. We invite you to review the personal page for each attorney to find out their particular specialties and bar certifications.

Our firm is proud to provide excellent legal representation at affordable rates.
