We are proud to announce that our associate attorney Brad Thayer was notified on Friday April 8, 2016, that he passed the Oregon bar examination. Fittingly, Brad learned the good news when he was riding the train to Salem, Oregon, to partake in a social hosted by OTLA (the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association), welcoming law students and new lawyers into its ranks.
With this development, the tally of dual-licensed (in both Oregon and Washington) attorneys at Schauermann Thayer Jacobs Staples & Edwards PS will climb to five.”
His swearing in as an Oregon attorney is scheduled for April 28, 2016, in Salem, Oregon, before the Oregon Supreme Court. Brad passed the Washington bar exam in October of 2015. He has been practicing law full time as a Washington attorney, while studying for the Oregon bar exam, since joining the firm. Brad graduated cum laude and in the top ten percent of his class from the Willamette University College of Law in June of 2015.
With this development, the tally of dual-licensed (in both Oregon and Washington) attorneys at Schauermann Thayer Jacobs Staples & Edwards PS will climb to five. Brad's father, Bill Thayer, one of the founding partners of the firm, and who started the practice of law originally licensed in 1980 in Washington State alone, has been licensed in both Oregon and Washington since 2006. Partner Jeff Jacobs began the practice of law in California in 1976, moved to Vancouver and became Washington-licensed in 1995, and obtained his Oregon license in 2002. Partner Scott Staples became Washington-licensed in 2007 and obtained his Oregon license in 2013. Partner Scott Edwards took both the Oregon and Washington bar exams directly out of law school and has thus been dual-licensed since he began to practice law in 2008.
The second founder of the firm, now of counsel, is attorney Craig Schauermann. Craig has been a member of the Washington State Bar since 1977.
The focus of Brad Thayer and of all of the attorneys' practice at the Schauermann Thayer Jacobs Staples & Edwards PS law firm is plaintiff personal injury and wrongful death cases in Oregon and Washington. We take cases on a contingent (percentage) fee basis and do not charge a consultation fee.
