People see themselves as handy and sel-reliant. Business owners and managers are no dierent. But when it comes to em-ployment law, the right inormation and an expert opinion can mean the dierence between a smooth fx and a renovationnightmare.Our newest partner, Amanda Walkup, understands the drive to do it yoursel. She and her husband have spent several yearssteadily turning their house into the home o their dreams. And while they enjoy learning new skills and seeing the results,they know certain jobs are better let to the experts. The same can be said about an eective human resources program — ittakes more than just elbow grease and enthusiasm to do it right. Getting solid legal advice is an essential step in achieving theend result you want and expect.With more than a decade o experience as a practicing attorney under her toolbelt, plus three years in the HR Department oone o Lane County’s largest employers, Amanda brings the kind o hands-on, practical experience in employment law thatmanagers can depend on when they need proessional advice.Having the right tools can make all the dierence.180 East 11th Avenue | Eugene, Oregon | 97401 |
