DeShaw  

Dr. Aaron DeShaw

Brain injury victims face serious physical and financial challenges. An accident caused by negligence can forever change the lives of all parties involved. Inferior medical care and devices may have made a bad situation even worse. People suffering serious brain injuries need a legal advocate to represent their interests.

Dr. Aaron DeShaw, the Portland law firm's founding attorney, not only possesses extensive legal experience in litigating brain injury claims, he also understands the medical aspects of the diagnosis and treatment of brain and other neurological conditions.
