Ron K. Cheng

Ron is a trial lawyer with a passion for helping people. Before beginning his legal career, Ron was involved in public service; helping marginalized communities gain respect and dignity. As a result of his work with women rights, minority groups, and college students, Ron was presented with a leadership award by the local NAACP chapter.

Considered one of the nation’s top client counselors by the Law Student Division of the American Bar Association, Ron now focuses his talent and passion on helping people who have been severely injured. Ron represents victims of drunk driving and those with devastating injuries from dental malpractice, pharmaceutical errors, and other life-changing events. Ron strongly believes that those who are catastrophically harmed deserve to have their dignity restored or compensated for – especially when their injuries are a result of corporate greed or reckless indifference to the poor, disabled, and other vulnerable populations.

Ron continues to volunteer with students, minority groups, and tackles several pro bono projects a year to give back to the community. A frequent public speaker to various legal and non-legal organizations, Ron believes in raising strong leaders and lawyers to protect the vulnerable and make our society stronger. In 2016, Ron was presented with Lewis & Clark Law School’s Mentor of the Year Award; presented with the Community Spirit Award at the Lewis & Clark Distinguished Alumni Dinner; and was further recognized by the Oregon State Bar ONLD with the Public Service Award. However, Ron believes that his biggest accomplishment has been watching his clients, students, and fellow community members find their voice, be heard, and use it to protect others.

I called Mr. Cheng's office to get help with with an eviction case. He was kind and listened to my story fully asking question to clarify when needed. I could tell he really is one of those guys that cares and does not mind taking up his valuable time to help people in bad situations. In the end he referred me to another office that handles my type of case. I can tell he is extremely knowledgeable in his field and would not be shocked in a few years if he is one of the best known Lawyers in Portland.

Ron Cheng and his assistant Rosey were very prompt, as prompt as a lawyer can be, with my case. My case was about my landlord having bedbugs in the units and, knowingly, renting them out. He was able to settle the case in my favor and protect my rights at the same time. As a matter of fact, he made absolutely sure I would not end up being responsible for the other party in the future. He always kept me up to date with any information and called me back in a timely manner. Ron Cheng cares. He is an excellent attorney.
