Legal Representation

Welcome to the Law Office of James M. Hanson, Jr.

If you have been injured in a vehicle collision, I can assist you in receiving fair compensation for your injuries. I am currently accepting matters involving personal injury. I also provide legal services in the areas of expungement of arrests and convictions, contract preparation and disputes, consumer law, and State Agency contested-case/administrative law matters. I maintain a smaller practice, so that I can focus on the cases I do accept, and am available to my clients when they call or come in.

Salem is my hometown. I grew up in here, and attended elementary and secondary schools here. I graduated both from Willamette University’s College of Liberal Arts and its College of Law. I have been a member of the Oregon State Bar since 1983. My career has provided me a diverse employment history, and given me experience in a variety of areas of the law. I also served 32 years in the Oregon Army National Guard, and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel.

Please contact me at:

I look forward to working with you,

Jim Hanson
