Employment Contract Attorney for Physicians
Oregon | Washington | California | Montana
This website focuses on employment contract review, advice, and representation for physicians and other healthcare practitioners in Oregon, Washington, California, and Montana. In addition to my work as a physician employment contracts attorney, I have many years of experience as a trial attorney and counselor for all manner of employees, including countless physicians and other healthcare professionals.
You can, of course, have your contract reviewed by your uncle who is a trusts and estates lawyer, or by a firm that uses contract reviewers who are not lawyers. While this may work fine, there is much to be said for relying upon an employment lawyer licensed in the jurisdiction where you intend to practice. I provide physician employment contract review and consultations only in the states where I am licensed to practice: Oregon (2011), Washington (2021), California (1991), and Montana (1988).
