Three attorneys from Farleigh Wada Witt have been named to the Super Lawyers list as top attorneys in Oregon for 2017.  Each year, only five percent of the lawyers in the state are named. 
 
Mark Wada has been listed for the twelfth consecutive year in the specialty area of banking. He has more than 30 years of experience representing financial service providers in commercial loan and lease documentation, real estate financings, workout negotiations, and portfolio acquisitions. 
 
Also named for the twelfth straight year is Brad Stanford, a litigator with over 25 years of courtroom experience. Brad's practice focuses on commercial litigation and he is a recognized leader in ski area defense and recreational products liability defense. 
 
Tara Schleicher was recognized for her work in the bankruptcy and creditors' rights area for the tenth consecutive year and was named to the 2017 Top 25 Women Oregon Super Lawyers list for receiving the highest ponit totals in the Oregon nomination. She is one of only nine attorneys in Oregon certified as a business bankruptcy specialist by the American Board of Certification. 
 
In addition, two Farleigh Wada Witt attorneys have been named to the Oregon Rising Stars list, an honor bestowed on only 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state. Melissa Chapman, whose practice focuses on commercial litigation and estate planning and administration, has been chosen for the fourth time in the primary area of business litigation.  Margot Seitz, whose practice focuses on bankruptcy and creditors' rights, has been named for the third time as one of the best attorneys in Oregon under the age of 40 or in practice for less than ten years.
