Jeff Pitzer formed his own law firm in Portland, Oregon in January 2002, after nearly 12 years at Chicago's Jenner & Block, a 400-lawyer national litigation powerhouse perenially ranked by the American Lawyer as one of the country's twenty most elite firms. Mr. Pitzer obtained a bachelors degree in chemistry from the University of Kansas in 1986, and earned his law degree, cum laude, from the University of Wisconsin in 1990. Mr. Pitzer launched his career at Jenner & Block in 1990, and became a full equity partner there in 1997.
Since forming Pitzer Law in 2002, Mr. Pitzer has tried and won cases throughout Oregon in both the state and federal courts (and on appeal) for both individuals and businesses. Mr. Pitzer's forte is figuring out complex cases, distilling them to their most basic essence, and presenting a winning narrative to the fact-finder, whether that be a judge, or a jury. When not at work, Mr. Pitzer spends time with his wife and four young children, and plays basketball and an occasional round of golf.
