She has lived in the Southern Oregon area since 1981 and completed her Bachelor of Science degree in business administration at Southern Oregon State College in 1991.
She has been a private practice attorney since 2002 providing a variety of legal services to many clients. Her practice areas are strongest in real estate, business, bankruptcy, land use, and criminal law.
Upon graduation from law school, Deborah worked for the Office of the District Attorney in Jackson County as a prosecutor. In that capacity she completed well over 58 jury trials in both misdemeanor and felony cases, including Measure 11 cases, as well as hundreds of bench trials. She is well seasoned in the courtroom and uses the rules of evidence and the rules of civil procedure effectively to assist her clients’ cases.
After four years as a prosecutor she took a position as Assistant County Counsel in Jackson County. In that capacity she provided legal advice and services to county officers, department managers, and employees, and acted as trial advocate in civil litigation at all levels of court. The position required her to independently analyze, appraise and organize facts, evidence and precedents and present such material orally and in writing in clear and logical form, and to explain relevant policies and procedures and matters of law when necessary to County officials, including the Commissioners.
She is admitted to practice law in the U.S. Supreme Court, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, U.S. District Court of Oregon, and the Oregon Supreme Court.
