Attorney Profile

Teresa H. Pearson, a partner in the business department, has been practicing law since 1995 and joined Miller Nash Graham & Dunn in 2001. Teresa is admitted to practice in Oregon and Washington. Her practice focuses primarily on creditors’ rights, insolvency, and reorganization. She represents lenders, trade creditors, creditors committees, trustees, receivers, debtors, and other clients in all forums where debtor-creditor issues appear—out of court, bankruptcy court, state and federal trial court, and appellate court.

In 2006, Teresa received national board certification in business bankruptcy law from the American Board of Certification. (The Supreme Court of Washington does not recognize certifications of specialties in the practice of law, and this certification is not a requirement to practice law in the state of Washington.)
