    Attorney Profile

    Gretchen L. Mandekor is an attorney with the Rosenbaum Law Group, PC, in Portland, Oregon. A top-rated trial attorney with more than 20 years of legal experience, Ms. Mandekor focuses her practice primarily on personal injury law. She represents the rights and entitlements of clients throughout the greater Portland metro region and surrounding areas who suffered an injury or loss as the result of someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.

    Along with handling all types of personal injury and wrongful death claims arising from motor vehicle accidents, dangerous property conditions, bicycle and motorcycle accidents, and other preventable tragedies, Ms. Mandekor also defends legal malpractice claims and other serious civil litigation matters. Well-versed in alternative dispute resolution techniques, she prefers to help her clients resolve their conflicts and come to terms without the need for expensive, time-consuming litigation; however, she will not hesitate to take her clients' issues to court when necessary.

    Early in her legal career, Ms. Mandekor worked as an insurance defense attorney, so she has invaluable insight into the industry and the tactics insurance companies use to deny claims. Armed with this experience, she is able to devise the most effective strategies possible to help her clients recover the full amount of compensation they deserve, and she has secured numerous substantial settlements and verdicts for her clients.

    Born in Vancouver, Canada, Ms. Mandekor graduated with First Class Honours from McGill University in Montreal. She then received a scholarship and attended the University of Oregon School of Law, where she obtained her Juris Doctor in 1999 and a certificate in international law. She is a member of the Multnomah County and Oregon State Bar Associations as well as the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association, and she routinely conducts lectures and seminars across her region on a variety of legal topics.
