Art Stevens to be honored at the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association Convention in August 2010

Art Stevens is set to receive The Doug Swanson Workers’ Compensation Award, which is awarded by the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association at their annual Convention.

For two decades Stevens has tirelessly represented hundreds of injured and disabled Oregonians whose claims have been denied or improperly processed by a well-funded insurance industry. Born in Idaho, Stevens attended school in France before receiving his undergraduate degree from Whitman College in 1978. Following a stint as a teaching assistant at the University of Southern California, he received his law degree from Lewis and Clark Law School in 1984. Stevens started his legal career as a Special Assistant Attorney General for the State of Oregon’s Insurance Fund (SAIF).

This experience led him to change hats and go into private practice representing injured workers who would otherwise find themselves shut out by the insurance system. He has also maintained a prolific Social Security Disability practice involving extensive agency and Federal Court work.

      Art Stevens represented me in a workers compensation case last year, and I would like to publicly thank him for the excellent service he did.
      First of all, communication between Art and myself was very good!. Any calls or inquiries made by me were promptly answered and all questions were answered in a way that I could understand and feel comfortable with.
      I would recommend Art, or any of his associates, for being as professional, yet down to earth, as can be done. I was treated as a human being and not just a number.
      If, in the future, I need professional representation regarding legal matters, I would not hesitate to call on Art first. I already know that if Art doesn’t think he’s the best man for the job, he knows who to recommend to handle what specifics I may need…
