Kara Cogswell

My background in journalism has helped me understand not to take a “story” at face value.  Instead, succeeding in law requires taking the time to fully research a case, the medical and legal aspects involved, and the experts involved

Kara’s practice is concentrated on all aspects of workers’ compensation defense.  Prior to joining the firm, Kara represented financial institutions in judicial foreclosure actions, and claimants in social security matters.

From her social security benefits practice, Kara gained substantial experience in both administrative law and in medical matters; she now brings this experience to firm clients.

Prior to practicing law, Kara’s background has been in journalism.  After college, she worked as a copy editor for newspapers, including The Oregonian.

A Northwest native, Kara enjoys skiing, running, gardening, travel, and spending time with her husband and pets.
