Portland attorney and Gevurtz Menashe Associate Edward A. Kroll

Edward A. Kroll

Of Counsel
With 15 years of experience as a trial lawyer, Ed is our premier litigator. He brings deliberate focus, compassion, reasoning and fearlessness to his practice, assuring his clients that with time and the right solutions, their situations will get better. While he believes most matters are best resolved with mutual agreements, he also knows that depending on the dynamics at play, that approach isn’t always possible. In that case, having an experienced litigator is vital to reaching desired outcomes. Those who have worked with Ed can attest to his efficient work ethic and steadfast nature. Over the course of his career, Ed has become a big believer that sometimes the best solutions can take time to come together.

When Ed isn’t litigating in the courtroom, you can find him at CrossFit, teaching at Lewis & Clark Law School, cooking, spoiling his dog, and aggravating his wife by making terrible puns.
