Brook D. Wood is licensed to practice law in Oregon.Already a law clerk with David W. Owens, P.C. & Associates while in law school, Brook joined the ranks of the firm’s attorneys after being admitted to the bar in October of 2009, and became a shareholder in January of 2011.

Brook graduated from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona, in 2002 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology.He received his Juris Doctor from the Lewis and Clark Law School here in Portland, having never visited the state of Oregon before deciding to attend there.

Brook’s practice focuses on civil litigation and motions practice, contract drafting, review, and enforcement, and estate planning, probate, and administration.His practice has primarily been in the State Circuit Courts for the counties of Clackamas and Multnomah, and he is admitted to practice in the Federal District Court for the District of Oregon.Whatever the issue, Brook is committed to providing his clients with the knowledge, skill, and communication necessary to bring satisfactory resolution to their complex and trying problems.

Brook brings a broad perspective to the practice of law, having come to the law as a second career.Prior to enrolling in law school, Brook worked in an entomology laboratory at the University of Arizona, collecting data on hereditary resistance development in pests of transgenic cotton and co-authoring several publications on the subject.His background in the sciences has helped him develop the analytical skills necessary to evaluate fact patterns and wade through complex statutory language.Brook’s wide interests have also influenced his development as an attorney and as a person.He has served on the boards of directors of charity organizations supporting the arts and the environment and has been involved with groups like the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, the United Way, and Habitat for Humanity.

Away from the law, Brook enjoys sports and exploring all that Oregon and the Pacific Northwest has to offer with his wife and their dogs.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
