Jovanna L. Patrick
I attended Lewis and Clark College for my undergraduate studies, which included studying overseas in Sevilla, Spain. I graduated in 2005 with a double major in History and Communications, minor in Latin American Studies. I then worked in the mortgage industry for several years before attending Northwestern School of Law at Lewis and Clark. I began working for Hollander Lebenbaum & Gannicott in 2007 as a legal assistant while I attended law school. I graduated in December, 2010 with High Honors and became a junior partner attorney for this firm when admitted to the Bar in May, 2011.
I am admitted to all courts in Oregon. I am member of MBA (Multnomah Bar Association), OTLA (Oregon Trial Lawyers Association), and OWLS (Oregon Women Lawyers). I am also a committee member of the Workers’ Compensation Access to Justice Subcommittee.
My practice consists of workplace injuries, personal injuries, employment discrimination/civil rights, wage claims and professional malpractice. I am proficient in Spanish and represent many non-English speaking clients. I became an attorney to give a legal voice to people who may not otherwise have an avenue to vindicate a legal wrong. I pride myself on empowering my clients by helping them understand the legal system and their options and by looking for creative solutions to legal issues. Hollander Lebenbaum & Gannicott is the perfect place for me to effectuate positive change in the lives of my clients, and, by extension, increase access to justice of all Oregonians.
I grew up in Northern California, but my roots are in Portland, my maternal great-grandparents having come to Oregon in covered wagon over the Oregon Trail. I live in SW Portland with my husband and pets and love my adopted city and state.
