OAN Legal Access Program


The Oregon Association of Nurseries ("OAN") and OAN General Counsel, Steve Shropshire of Jordan Ramis PC, are pleased to offer the Legal Access Program, a free program for all Regular and Associate Members.

Legal Access entitles each OAN Regular and Associate Member to thirty (30) minutes per calendar month of FREE legal advice from Jordan Ramis PC attorney Steve Shropshire. If your question cannot be reasonably answered within the allotted 30 minutes, Steve will estimate the amount of additional time he believes the answer will require. You may then elect to hire Jordan Ramis PC to represent you further on that matter, hire other counsel, or drop the matter altogether.  It's simple to access Steve for advice at 503-598-5583 or toll-free at 888-598-7070. When you call, please have your organization name and your OAN membership number ready.

Legal Access services are intended for one-time, situation-specific questions relating to the nursery business. This member benefit is not intended to cover matters that require ongoing legal advice beyond the initial 30-minute consultation. Members can ask about corporate or business matters, employment matters, contracts, water rights, land use, leasing or buying of operations and property, regulatory matters, liens, equipment loan documents, line of credit and banking matters, liability associated with accidents, construction disputes, and other matters relevant to their business. Personal advice and advice relating to accounting issues are not included in the Legal Access program. However, Steve will be happy to provide members with referrals to specialists in those matters. If you call regarding a specific dispute, Steve will ask you for the names of the parties involved and the subject of the dispute to ensure Jordan Ramis PC does not have any conflicts of interest. Please have this information ready before you call with regard to a dispute. Steve cannot advise you regarding a dispute with another OAN member.

Steve Shropshire and Jordan Ramis PC are committed to offering responsive, efficient, and results-oriented legal services to our clients. We encourage you to take advantage of the Legal Access program to resolve legal issues before they become business problems.
