R. Brendan Dummigan , Partner
Brendan has been practicing law and helping people since 1993. He formed Pickett Dummigan McCall LLP in 2003 with his longtime friend and mentor, Randy Pickett. Brendan is a trial lawyer and he has tried over 100 cases and successfully resolved thousands more.
Brendan was inspired to become a lawyer when he was traveling and backpacking throughout South America. He met several attorneys who would go into rural communities to help poor farmers protect their livelihoods and their land from wealthy businesses that would try to take advantage of them. This experience has deeply influenced his philosophy in practicing law. Brendan is committed to helping people who don’t have the means or understanding to navigate the complex court system. He especially enjoys speaking fluent Spanish to represent people who struggle with English and other communication barriers.
In addition to representing his clients, he also teaches other personal injury lawyers at continuing legal education seminars. Brendan is an educator at heart. He realizes the importance of education and volunteers his time as a speaker for the “Drop Out Prevention” program at various Portland middle schools. He has also been invited to speak at his local high school to teach students about their legal rights. His natural ability as a teacher makes it easy for his clients to understand what the law is and make educated decisions.
When he isn’t practicing law, Brendan spends time with his wife and two sons. He has supported the neighborhood elementary school his two sons attended and has volunteered as a soccer coach for the Irvington Soccer Club. He is a regular bicycle commuter, rain or shine, and enjoys a regular yoga practice as well as scaling and skiing the Northwest’s volcanoes and the western mountain ranges of Utah and Colorado.

Letter of Testimony as Brendan Dummigan my attorney. The very first time I met Brendan I was interviewing a few lawyers to handle my case. When we met I had the gut feeling of his sincerity and being authentic. It was the fact that he was being real with me was my reason to work with him. After working on my case for over a year I am happy to report that his kindness and authentic nature was represented the whole time. He genuinely cares and was pleasant to work with. I would highly recommend working with him any of your needs that may arise. Thank you for being a great person and a wonderful lawyer.

Big thank you to you and your team Rachel and Gabby. It was a pleasure to work with you. I appreciate all that you did to guide through that difficult accident. So happy to have that chapter closed. Take care. All my best.
‘With warm appreciation for all you’ve given of your time, your energy, and yourself.’
We so appreciate all that you did for us in handling our case. Your compassion, empathy, and professionalism meant so much to us. You made the whole process so much easier. Thank you again."
“We would like to express our greatest gratitude to Brendan Dummigan for representing our case. We would like to say that he and the whole attending staff at the law firm was amazing to work with. Everytime we needed questions answered or updates, they were there. If Brendan wasn't available at the moment, there was always voicemail we could count or messages we could leave with the staff knowing we would get a quick response. We would most certainly refer Brendan and this law firm; Pickett Dummigan LLP, to whom ever would be in need of excellent representation.
Mr. Dummigan and his staff are very professional and caring. They took a case that no one else would...and put their energy and resources into the case to see it come to a successful close. They were great about keeping me informed about the current status of the case and preparing me for the deposition and mediation. It was an unfortunate series of events that led me to Mr. Dummigan's office, but I was thankful for the closure his office brought to my situation.
