Trisha D. Hole



Trisha D. Hole is a partner with Reinisch Wilson PC serving with the Oregon litigation practice. Trisha heads the firm’s Oregon appellate practice, representing and defending employers, insurers, and third-party claims administrators before the Oregon Workers’ Compensation Board, Oregon Court of Appeals and Oregon Supreme Court. 

Trisha earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Davis in International Relations. She then moved from her home state of California to attend law school at Northwestern School of Law of Lewis and Clark College. Trisha obtained her law degree from Lewis and Clark in 2004. During law school, Trisha was an associate editor for the Animal Law Journal. She also clerked for the Oregon State Bar and Standard Insurance. After passing the Oregon Bar, Trisha joined Reinisch Wilson PC in January of 2005 where she was hired as part of the firm’s Washington practice. She obtained her Washington State Bar license in 2005. After a few years of practicing Washington workers’ compensation defense, Trisha switched to the Oregon practice group in 2008. She took over the firm’s Oregon appellate practice in 2015. 

Growing up with a physician father and lawyer aunt, I have had a lifelong interest in both medicine and the law. The practice of workers’ compensation blends the two perfectly. I greatly enjoy the intense and detailed focus on the medical evidence in our practice and applying the relevant legal authority to each unique situation. My appellate practice allows me an even greater opportunity to dive deeply into every case in order to craft the best arguments on appeal. Since I am well aware of the ongoing financial concerns of most clients, I also emphasize the benefits of negotiating alternative solutions to the costly appellate process whenever possible.
