Wheeler County Fire

wheelerfireOur office represented over a dozen landowners whose homes, timber, orchards, and farmland were damaged by the Wheeler County Fire. A logging company had been engaged in logging in August in Wheeler County, Oregon. A fire broke out from the area of the logging. Hundreds of acres were burned and destroyed. Our firm represented the private landowners whose acreage was destroyed in an action against the logging company and timber company. After extensive court battles, discovery, and depositions, the case was resolved in a court-conducted mediation. Our firm worked with numerous different experts concerning timber values and diminished land values. As the acreage included numerous homes with landscapes, as well, we also dealt extensively with the ornamental value of the trees.
