The firm was founded by B.S. Huntington and H.S. Wilson, both of whom were educated at the University of Vermont. Mr. Huntington practiced law in The Dalles from 1886 to 1890 before joining Mr. Wilson in Portland in 1909. Together they formed the partnership of Huntington & Wilson, which would eventually become Schulte, Anderson, Downes, Aronson & Bittner.
Most disputes are resolved when the parties come to an agreement. However, sometimes an acceptable agreement is not available and a court or jury must resolve the dispute. Our attorneys have extensive experience in the courtroom and are well equipped to vigorously protect our clients interests and their goals.
Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) encompasses mediation and arbitration, often a preferred alternative to costly litigation. Utilizing ADR is a decision made on a case by case basis. The attorneys at Schulte Anderson have the expertise to guide you in this decision and the experience to bring about the best possible resolution for you.
Of modest size but huge in ambition and ability. That is a phrase that describes both Portland, Oregon and Schulte Anderson. In over 100 years in the City of Roses, our firm has grown and matured with the town we call home. From a pioneer town known for lumber and agriculture in the 1800s to a high tech hub and a leader in sustainability in the 2000s, Portland has consistently reinvented herself so to remain relevant and vital. Schulte Anderson follows that Oregon born spirit and has itself grown and changed over the years moving from the banking and real estate law focus at its founding in 1909 to the litigation focused firm it is today. Like the city we call home we have grown and we have changed over the years, and like Portland has stayed true to the pioneer spirit she was founded under, we have stayed true to the principles of our founders namely of providing value and service to the client.
Family law is not just divorces and child support, it also includes custody, visitation, and domestic partnerships. Our attorneys are some of the top in Oregon. That is the representation you want.
