Adam Hanson
Young Walgenkim

Adam Hanson was born and raised in Salem, Oregon. He is a fourth-generation Oregonian and is committed to serving his community.  He left the country to serve a two-year mission for his church in Bulgaria, and later spent time in Eugene attending the University of Oregon.  During law school Adam focused on alternative dispute resolution (ADR) including negotiation, mediation, and arbitration.

No matter where your legal conflict resides, very few issues make it to court and are instead resolved in one of these alternative venues.  Knowing this is the reality of the practice of law, Adam earned a certificate in dispute resolution.

    Adam enjoys working with and helping people solve their problems in any way possible and he looks forward to being able to help you.
