Katie H. Haraguchi

Katie values a cost-effective and reasonable approach to conflict resolution.  As a small business owner, she understands the demands on her client's time and the importance of minimizing the disruption and expense of litigation.
Attorney at Law
Katie’s practice focuses on trust and estate litigation, protective proceedings, and general commercial litigation including investment and securities fraud litigation.  She has been involved in a wide range of complex commercial litigation in state and federal courts, including contract and business valuation disputes, banking and financial services industry litigation, insurance coverage actions, probate litigation, and FINRA arbitrations.  Katie is particularly interested in complex financial and fiduciary issues.
A behavioral economist at heart, Katie enjoys the collision of culture, values, and policy that occurs in the law.  She is passionate about protecting and promoting her clients’ interests—professional and personal—through all stages of a dispute and avidly pursues creative solutions that recognize the multiple interests at stake in any litigation.  Katie was recognized by Oregon Super Lawyers magazine as a Rising Star in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.
Katie lives in Northeast Portland with her husband and two daughters.  Her family supports the Campaign for Equal Justice, the Oregon Food Bank, and All Hands Raised.
