Megan J. Crowhurst understands that each legal challenge requires a different approach depending on the goals of her clients. She is a passionate advocate, but she recognizes that offering superior legal services is not always about winning every possible argument. The most desired result often requires flexibility and consistent communication to ensure a cost-effective solution to every legal matter that comes across her desk.

Megan has represented corporate clients of all sizes, from multinational corporations to family-owned businesses. She provides practical advice and training to employers on various employee-related issues, including FMLA and ADA compliance; effective discipline and discharge; conducting harassment and workplace investigations; reviewing employment contracts; and policy and handbook development and administration. When needed, she defends employers before state and federal courts and administrative agencies in all types of individual employee and class action labor and employment litigation, including discrimination, harassment, wrongful and retaliatory discharges and wage and hour issues.

Before moving her practice to Oregon, Megan practiced labor and employment law in Chicago.

She was president of the Moot Court Honor Board and editor of the Pacific Rim Law & Policy Journal during law school. Prior to attending law school, Megan was actively involved in politics and served as a White House staff member during the Clinton Administration.
