Pickett Dummigan McCall LLP is committed to serving our community inside and outside of the courtroom. We believe that community service is not only beneficial, but necessary to public and personal growth.
As members of the Bicycle Transport Alliance, we do our part to keep the roads safe for all users. The number one preventable cause of bicycle injuries can be attributed to not wearing helmets. However, many families cannot afford to buy helmets. To this end, we’ve donated hundreds of helmets to disadvantaged communities around Portland. We’ve also teamed up with the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association and Legacy Emanuel Hospital to provide and fit helmets for our neighbors in need. Everyone, rich or poor, should be able to enjoy a bicycle ride safely.

Traffic safety extends beyond bicyclists. As part of our commitment to making the community a safer place, our attorney Christopher Larsen has created an innovative traffic law and safety program called the Share the Road Safety Class. Created in 2007 with the approval of the Multnomah Circuit Court, Share the Road provides education to all road users- bicyclists, pedestrians and motor vehicle drivers. The class is also offered in Spanish and Russian. Chris volunteers his time working with trauma nurses, law enforcement and community safety advocates to offer people the option of taking the Share the Road Class to get their traffic violation dismissed instead of having to pay a fine. Share the Road helps good people who made a traffic mistake to become smarter and safer drivers. Over 20,000 people have taken Share the Road Safety Class, which has helped to reduce traffic crashes and injuries in our community.

Education is a path to success and our attorneys and staff strongly believe that everyone should get an opportunity to learn. We love going into Portland schools to help teach about the law. We also support extraordinary students by donating to the IME Becas Scholarship and the Hispanic Metropolitan Chamber Scholarship. We are proud to know that some of these students end up working with our nation’s top senators on Capitol Hill!
