Experienced Malheur County Lawyer
Welcome to the website of Brian Zanotelli, a litigation attorney in Malheur County, Oregon, with an emphasis on civil litigation and criminal defense. Mr. Zanotelli's office is headquartered in Vale, one block from the courthouse and 15 minutes from Ontario.
Whether you need help starting a lawsuit or defending a lawsuit, the first step in choosing a lawyer is to discuss your particular situation, face to face, through an initial consultation. This no-pressure meeting offers each party a chance to become acquainted, discuss the details of your case and consider your legal options. Before entering a client/lawyer relationship we determine if your case is a good fit -- with both your needs and our services.
By having the right attorney involved from the beginning, you tap a powerful resource -- one whose knowledge and experience can help you take the right sequence of steps to present your case in the best possible light, act within the letter of the law, and increase the odds of winning your case.
Our experience with difficult, unusual, and high-conflict cases has taught us a lot. We've learned when to be patient and compassionate and also when to fight back. If your case lacks drama and everyone is on the same page, great! In addition to handling complicated matters, we enjoy agreed divorces and low conflict probates.
"My first advice is always to avoid trouble and avoid litigation. Try to solve your problem with a phone call, a letter, an apology or a handshake. Unfortunately, sometimes this approach fails. When it's time to fight back, I can help."Brian Zanotelli
