Effective July 1, 2019, after 39 years and five months, the firm of Lachenmeier Enloe ceased operation. Jay Enloe retired from active practice with the Oregon State Bar but will be available to serve in the capacity of arbitrator or mediator. Rudy Lachenmeier has stopped accepting new plaintiff or defense cases, but will remain active with the Oregon State Bar as he winds down his litigation practice and transitions to doing exclusively mediations and arbitrations.
Rudy Lachenmeier and Jay Enloe have spent their careers representing clients in civil disputes—usually by representing parties in state and federal court litigation—and have tried to verdict well more than 125 cases each and have represented parties in arbitration in at least as many cases. In recent years, they have expanded the scope of their practice to include helping other parties resolve cases by serving as mediator or arbitrator.
