Did you know that Oregon is the only state to REQUIRE attorneys to have malpractice insurance? Friday I helped persuade the Oregon State Bar House of Delegates to amend the Oregon Bar Professional Rules of Conduct to require non- Oregon attorneys who perform arbitrations in Oregon to reveal whether or not they also carry malpractice insurance. This is an important step to help protect Oregon consumers– especially since traditional trial is vanishing in favor of arbitration. The change was passed contrary to OSB task force reccomendations .

About the Author: Richard Rizk
“Helping Everyday People, Every Day” is not just a slogan. It is my passion. I seek justice for you, an injured and/or disabled person facing a powerful insurance company or employer. Why? Because helping folks in claim distress makes best use of my unique blend of insurance defense and inside claim handling experience. I worked for insurance companies or their law firms from 1990 to 2001. As a result, I know insurers and employers have great power and sometimes abuse that power. I now work to prevent that from happening. I opened Rizk Law Offices in 2002. I have a big heart and insights only a former insurance attorney can have. Call me if you think I might be able to help you. – Richard H. Rizk
