Alvey Law Group founder Marcia Alvey has been selected to the 2020 Oregon Super Lawyers list.
This is a rare honor for an Oregon workers’ compensation lawyer: fewer than five percent of Oregon lawyers are selected by Super Lawyers.
The annual list is made using a famously independent multiphase process including a statewide survey, peer reviews, and a research evaluation of candidates.
How Oregon Super Lawyers are selected
After an open candidate nomination process, Super Lawyers’ research department evaluates each lawyer in the candidate pool. The evaluations are based on:
- Verdicts and Settlements, or Transactions;
- Representative Clients;
- Legal Experience;
- Honors and Awards;
- Special licenses/certifications;
- Position within the law firm;
- Bar and/or professional activity;
- Pro bono work and community service;
- Scholarly lectures and writings;
- Education/employment background, and other outstanding achievements.
Then, a panelist of peer attorneys use this information to rate the Super Lawyers candidates.
The candidates with the highest point totals are grouped and compared. The result: a rated list of attorneys who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.
Recent cases that originated at Alvey Law Group contributed to Marcia Alvey’s long history of fighting for working people. Garcia-Solis v. Farmers Insurance Company 365 OR 26, and Pilling v. Travelers Insurance Company, 365 OR 236, were heard by the Oregon Supreme Court in 2019. Goodwin v. NBC Universal Media, 289 OR App 475 was heard in the Court of Appeals. All were aided by appellate attorney Julene Quinn. Alvey Law Group is proud of these precedent-setting cases.
Ms. Alvey has been practicing workers’ compensation, social security and personal injury law since 1987. Alvey Law Group is based in Portland, Oregon, and helps injured Oregonians throughout the state.
