Lin Hendler

Lin took advantage of Portland's excellent local education and graduated from both Reed College followed by Lewis & Clark Law School in 2010. There, she explored many intriguing opportunities, including an Indian Law internship in South Dakota and with the public interest group Compassion and Choices, featured in the award-winning documentary “How to Die in Oregon.” She also volunteered at Doernbecher Children's Hospital for approximately three years on the Pediatric Acute Care Floor. Lin has traveled extensively and attended The University of York, UK for a Master's in Medieval Literature after she graduated from Reed in 2001. Her father retired from importing, but she was fortunate enough to travel the world with him to exotic locales such as Ethiopia, Egypt, Kenya and Yemen. She credits her open-minded views to what she has seen abroad and during her many years as both a volunteer and a patient in hospitals.

Lin is an Adult Congenital Heart Defect Survivor and fancies herself one of the few lawyers in her 30s who has survived two open heart surgeries. It was her own battle through college and law school that drives her passion to work with families in not only planning their lives, but to fight for those who have to work extra hard to find their place in an academic or professional setting. As a lawyer in private practice, Lin volunteered at Disability Rights Oregon and serves on the Multnomah Bar Association's committee for Equality and Diversity. She further serves on the Oregon State Bar Disability Law Section as Secretary and the Oregon Women Lawyers Disability Subcommittee. She is proud to make her passion her livelihood.
