Lewis Farmer,  Managing Attorney

Lewis has moved around the coun­try, liv­ing in Texas, Geor­gia, Ohio, Cal­i­for­nia and Ore­gon. After grad­u­at­ing from Pitzer Col­lege in Clare­mont, Cal­i­for­nia, Lewis got his first job at a law firm as an Office Assis­tant. It was work­ing there that he decid­ed to go to law school and enrolled at Lewis and Clark Law School in Port­land, Ore­gon. After grad­u­at­ing there, he took some time as a Para­le­gal before sit­ting for the bar exam and pass­ing on his first attempt, years out of law school, while work­ing full time and plan­ning his wedding.

Lewis is most expe­ri­enced in fam­i­ly law mat­ters, estate plan­ning and admin­is­tra­tion, real estate trans­ac­tions and dis­putes, landlord/tenant mat­ters and DUII defense.

Riley O’Hara, Legal Assistant

Grow­ing up in a rur­al small town in Ohio, Riley decid­ed to bounce around the Mid­west dur­ing her under­grad­u­ate degree. She start­ed at Ohio Uni­ver­si­ty for Jour­nal­ism her first year, and then trans­ferred to North­ern Ken­tucky Uni­ver­si­ty to major in Com­mu­ni­ca­tions with a focus in Busi­ness. After work­ing for 3 years as a senior deck­hand on water taxis in Lake Michi­gan, dur­ing which she was award­ed the Cap­tain P. Dob­bins Award for Excel­lence in Search and Res­cue and grad­u­at­ing with her degree, she decid­ed to pur­sue a career that felt more fulfilling.

She is now attend­ing Port­land Com­mu­ni­ty Col­lege to achieve her Para­le­gal Cer­tifi­cate and hopes to even­tu­al­ly attend law school. Advo­cat­ing for oth­ers in need is one of her biggest pas­sions, and that is what dri­ves her in this occu­pa­tion­al direc­tion. She is most inter­est­ed in crim­i­nal and fam­i­ly law.

For fun, Riley enjoys play­ing soc­cer and going for long hikes with her hus­band. If she isn’t in the wilder­ness, she can usu­al­ly be found spend­ing time with fam­i­ly or relax­ing with her two cats.
