Fighting For The Rights Of Workers
Before forming The Bullman Law Firm in 2010, Paul represented both workers and employers. He gained experience representing all sides in employment disputes. But for Paul, his dream was opening a law firm that only represented workers. Paul reached this dream in 2010. Our law firm has steadily grown throughout the years. Paul has built a team of attorneys who fight every day for workers.
Paul and his team investigate sexual harassment and other discrimination and retaliation. The Bullman Law Firm also advocates for clients in trial courts and during negotiations. Our law firm also protects worker rights in the appellate courts. Paul and the lawyers at his law firm also fight to protect workers rights in the Capitol.
Investigating Before A Lawsuit Is Filed
When a client hires our lawyers in a sexual harassment, discrimination or retaliation case, we first conduct an investigation. Our lawyers investigate the facts through documents and witnesses. Our law firm puts together the truth so each client has an understanding of their legal rights and how the wrong can be addressed.
Advocating In Trial Court
Once an investigation is completed and strong evidence of wrongdoing has been found, Paul advocates for workers in the court room.
While most sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation cases ultimately settle, there is no guarantee every case will reach a settlement. In order for the other side to take your case seriously, the case must be prepared as though it is going to trial.
In the trial court, our lawyers are able to conduct a formal investigation with subpoena power. Subject to the rules in Oregon courts, we obtain documents and depose witnesses through oral testimony called depositions.
Advocating In Negotiations
Investigating and having court skills is not enough. A strong sexual harassment and discrimination attorney must also be a skilled negotiator. Paul has won many cases for clients through settlements. First, Paul listens to client needs. Second, Paul aggressively negotiates for clients based on these needs. Paul does everything he can to achieve the best results for clients.
Protecting Rights In Appellate Courts
Paul represents clients in the appellate courts. He has also been selected by professional organizations to draft and submit arguments on their behalf. While sexual harassment and discrimination law continues to change, Paul wants to make sure the law changes to better protect workers.
Making Worker Rights Better In The Capitol
Paul has testified multiple times to state House and Senate committees on legislation that affects workers. Paul has drafted legislation to help advance worker rights. He actively advises legislators, sometimes well past midnight, during legislation sessions in order to protect worker rights. This is to ensure Portland Sexual Harassment and Portland Discrimination rights are strong.
