Attorney Profile

A co-founder of Gilroy Napoli Short Law Group, LLC, John P. Gilroy divides his practice between criminal defense matters and personal injury and wrongful death litigation. From the firm's main office in Portland, Oregon, he provides aggressive representation to clients throughout the state. Admitted to practice before all Washington and Oregon state courts, Mr. Gilroy is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon.

In his criminal defense practice, Mr. Gilroy assists people who have been accused by the state or federal government with having committed misdemeanor or felony offenses. The types of cases that he has handled have included driving under the influence, drug possession and trafficking, assault, domestic violence, white collar crimes, weapons violations, and sex crimes. Mr. Gilroy has been able to obtain successful results for many of his clients, whether through dismissals or acquittals, or by the negotiation of favorable plea agreements with the prosecution. Prior to entering private practice, he served for several years as a prosecutor with the Washington County District Attorney's Office, and this experience has enabled him to anticipate the types of tactics that he might see utilized against his defendant clients.

Mr. Gilroy's personal injury experience encompasses his representation of people who have been harmed by the negligence or recklessness of other parties in cases arising out of motor vehicle accidents or premises liability, and he has recovered significant compensation on their behalf, both through jury awards and as a result of negotiated settlements. His successful track record in both of his practice areas has earned him a "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo, and he has been named to The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100. Mr. Gilroy is a 1998 recipient of a Juris Doctor from the University of Oregon School of Law.
