Lorrie Heape Spencer is a litigation attorney in the Oregon workers’ compensation practice group. Prior to joining the firm, Lorrie was a litigator in the public sector then practiced workers’ compensation defense in Honolulu, Hawaii, where she discovered that the mergence of law and medicine involved in workers’ compensation is the right practice to suit her abilities and affinities.

Lorrie, a native of the Midwest, received her bachelor degree from Michigan State University before receiving her Juris Doctor from the University of Oregon School of Law. There, she was an Executive Editor of the Journal of Environmental Law and Litigation. While in law school, Lorrie clerked at the Oregon Department of Justice and Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office gaining valuable experience researching, writing, litigating, and negotiating complex cases as well as providing advice to clients. She joined Reinisch Wilson PC in 2021.

Extraordinary client service requires being attentive to the needs of each client and working efficiently and  effectively towards a shared goal. In the complex system of workers’ compensation, open communication and a clear understanding of the client’s priorities are paramount.

I believe that clients deserve an aggressive approach to evaluating every defense option, acquired through a detailed understanding and analysis of the law and facts. With this in mind, my approach is to assess each issue with attention to detail and timely communication, collaboratively creating a plan to achieve the best possible outcome.
