The partners of Preg, O’Donnell & Gillett are pleased to announce that Laurel Darby has returned to our Portland office as an associate attorney. Laurel has been practicing as an attorney since 2015. She brings a wide range of experiences practicing in both Missouri and Oregon over the past six years. Laurel’s practice focuses on complex business litigation matters including insurance defense, commercial claims, construction defect, personal injury and employment related disputes. Laurel’s advocacy has resulted in favorable results for her clients at arbitration, mediation, and on motion practice over the years.

On a personal note, Laurel has always had a desire to travel. This desire has been represented by her Juris Doctor from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law while receiving her Bachelor of Arts in history from the University of Oregon. After law school, Laurel practiced in Kansas City, Missouri for two years before relocating back to her home state of Oregon, which never left her heart. Besides reuniting with her friends at Preg, O’Donnell & Gillett, Laurel is also excited to be able to get back to experiencing the fine cuisine of Downtown Portland when the pandemic allows for a safe return to indoor dining.

We are pleased that Laurel has returned to our firm and believe she will make an excellent addition to our Portland office.
