Portland, OR… Jordan Ramis attorneys Damien Hall and Katie Jeremiah were among those recognized Thursday when the Daily Journal of Commerce announced its Up & Coming Lawyers honorees for 2011.
"We are very proud of Katie and Damien," said Steve Shropshire, managing shareholder at Jordan Ramis. "Both have a highly demonstrated commitment and determination in making a difference in the community and to the legal profession. Each is deserving of the recognition and honor."
The Up & Coming Lawyers program honors new attorneys who have exhibited an outstanding commitment to both the legal profession and the community. Only attorneys admitted to the Oregon State Bar within the last 10 years were considered. Honorees were evaluated by an independent panel of judges on the following criteria: professional accomplishments, community involvement, and pro bono work.
Katie recently was named the Oregon Concrete and Aggregate Producers Association's Associate Member of the Year for her work with Mine Safety and Health Administration law awareness within the industry. She also serves as a director on the boards for the Child Centered Solutions and Friends of the Children: Fast Friends.
Katie's educational background includes a B.S. in Construction Engineering Management from Oregon State University in 2001 and a J.D. from the Northwestern School of Law at Lewis & Clark College, where she received dual certificates in environmental and business law in 2009.
Damien was recently appointed to the City of Portland's 2011 Charter Review Commission. In addition to this appointment, Damien was recently elected chairman of the Oregon Convention Center Urban Renewal Area advisory committee.
Damien graduated from the University of Southern California with a B.S. in Public Policy, Planning, and Management in 2005 and received his J.D. from the Northwestern School of Law at Lewis & Clark College in 2008.
The honorees will be recognized at a November 10 dinner when one will be named the 2011 Up & Coming Lawyer of the Year.
