Allyson V. Swecker

Allyson Swecker joined Reinisch Wilson Weier in early 2019 as a litigation associate. Allyson attended Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama, before moving to the Pacific Northwest to begin practicing law in Portland. She now practices in our Oregon workers’ compensation practice group based in Portland.

Allyson earned her Bachelor of Science degree in zoology, with a focus on pre-medicine, from Auburn University in 2014. Her background in medicine is extremely useful in workers’ compensation law.

Client Service

Open communication, hard work, and understanding are vital to maintaining a successful workers’ compensation practice. I strive to ensure that I am knowledgeable and up to date on all relevant rules and case law so that my clients can feel confident in my representation.

Litigation is not always the best route for every case, so I work hard to ensure that my clients know all available options before choosing what works best for them. My clients are my first priority, and I am dedicated to ensuring the best possible outcome for each case.
