Joslyn D. Keating
Joslyn is a litigation attorney in the firm’s Oregon practice group. Born and raised in Portland, Joslyn moved to Moscow, Idaho, to complete her undergraduate and juris doctor degrees at the University of Idaho. She was driven to go to law school after successfully advocating for and establishing early class registration for the student athletes at the University of Idaho (of whom she was one). In law school, Joslyn worked as a research assistant and legal writing teaching assistant, while holding several other part-time jobs and a summer internship at a county prosecutor’s office.
Joslyn returned to Portland after graduating law school in 2012. She joined Reinisch Wilson Weier in 2020 after eight years of litigation experience, primarily representing employers and self-insured employers. In addition to workers’ compensation defense, her practice has included defending employment law claims, state OSHA investigations and citations, and general business matters.
My goal is to make my clients’ jobs easier. This goal directs my representation and results in an individualized approach to each client and each claim. I meticulously evaluate the needs of each case from the outset and on an ongoing basis to ensure my clients get a focused and well-reasoned defense approach designed to achieve the best resolution, whether that be trial, settlement, or something else. Built into this process is a collaborative and open communication style, so my clients stay well-informed, involved, and proactive with the management of their claims.
