SPONSOR, 2013 "Empty Bowls" fundraiser for Marion-Polk Food Share
I'm humbled and extremely grateful to the many clients who have entrusted me with their legal problems over the past three years since September 2010. Thanks to all those clients, I am able to be among the sponsors of the big fall benefit for Marion-Polk Food Share, the 2013 "Empty Bowls" fundraiser.
On NOVEMBER 23-24, if you live anywhere in or near Salem, I hope you'll come and buy one or a dozen of the beautiful handmade, hand-fired bowls donated by the scores of talented artists in our area. These "empty bowls" make some of the most appreciated, satisfying gifts in all of Oregon.
In addition to sustaining gifts to Marion-Polk Food Share, the John Gear Law Office, LLC, contributes in support of
JohnGearLaw.com & SalemConsumerLaw.com

My practice has three main focus areas: consumers, elders, and nonprofits. But those can overlap with many legal areas too. So if you are not sure I can help you, give me a call and let's set up a time to get together and talk.
Even if I can't help you myself, you might still benefit from some advice on how to find attorneys and choose one. While I cannot make specific referrals, I am happy to point you to resources for finding an attorney and good questions to ask prospective attorneys, as well as self-help resources available.
