  • Justice For My Family
    My father had a horrible accident that almost ended his life. I was stuck in a world that was unknown to me. How do I deal with insurance companies? Hospitals? Interpreting Medical Charts? I googled a few attorneys and the one that stood out to me was Mr. Coon. Mr. Coon has led an admirable career and has helped people like you and me his whole life. I contacted Mr. Coon's office and spoke to a nice lady who scheduled a meeting. After meeting with Mr. Coon he decided to take my father's case. It ended up being one of the best decisions I have ever made.

    What is remarkable about the Thomas Coon Newton & Frost team is that they each specialize in their own field. Mr. Coon leveraged the expertise of Mrs. Newton (Who is a remarkably kind, and a killer negotiator.) She made the world of difference within my father's case.

    Mr. Coon and Mrs. Newton were the light at the end of the tunnel for my family. This law firm puts their heart and soul regarding the individuals they represent. Mr. Coon and Mrs. Newton got justice for my family and my mother, father and I will forever be grateful for them. Thank you Mr. Coon and Mrs. Newton for representing our family. If I could give you 100 stars I would.

    Sincerely,

  • I had a really great experience working with Chris Thomas and his associates/assistants.
    They were always kind, proactive, and responsive. My case was settled in a timely manner and I was totally satisfied with the outcome. I hope I never need legal representation again for a personal injury case, but if I do, I won't hesitate to contact them. I highly recommend Chris and his firm!

  • Working with Thomas, Coon, Newton & Frost has been relieving.
    That is the only word I can find that explains my experience.

    After a potentially life-ending accident, everyone on their team was supportive, respectful and thorough. I was worried about many things after being struck by a car, but none of those were regarding my representation. I'm not sure how I would have managed without them. I can't say enough about the professionalism, kindness and  diligence of these good folks.

    I consider myself lucky to be healthy, lucky to have amazing people in my life, and lucky to have chosen Chris Thomas and his team to help me get my life back to normal.

  • I had a complicated disability retirement that involved not only Social Security, but the Office of Personal Management.
    My lawyer was excellent. I have a fairly severe learning disability, and organization and paperwork are not my strong suit. She made sure I was organized and prepared, both with the paperwork and for the court appearance. I always felt respected, which is rare for someone with my condition when dealing with others.

  • Chris helped me through a bike crash against a car that didn't stop in a STOP sign.
    I really appreciated the calm, honorable and disciplined approach of the firm. They really allowed me to take the care I needed to recover, without rushing me, prioritizing taking the time and attention I needed to heal well. They took care of everything, and only reached out every now and then to keep me posted and to make decisions.
    Don't be intimidated about working with attorneys; this firm acts with integrity and are fiduciaries for their clients.

  • I was referred to TCNF for a Personal Injury claim and can honestly say that you will not find a more caring, honest and hard working team
    to assist in settling your legal grievance.  Cynthia Newton and Chris Thomas made the whole experience remarkably easy to understand even for a first timer like me with the legal process.  Informative, professional and compassionate only begins to explain all they brought to the table.  Their work was always explained in terms that I could follow and was done swiftly.  You will not be disappointed in their sincerity and expertise.

  • I would like to let you know how much I appreciate the superb job that Cynthia Newton and Chris Thomas have done.
    They represented me with amazing professionalism in my bike accident case. Despite the insurance company's claim, they proved that the accident happened due to my opposing party's fault. They had a very difficult task at hand since there was no police report, and it was several months after my accident when I was advised to see your law firm, where the best bike accident attorneys are in Portland.

    Cynthia was ready to take my very difficult case, that resulted a settlement with the insurance company. Cynthia always informed me, explained what to expect, that helped me understand her job. I met Chris for the first time at the deposition. I was amazed by his series of elegant questions that helped to prove that the insurance company's statements were wrong.

    Cynthia and Chris are not only excellent attorneys, but also very kind and lovely people. Additionally, both are dedicated bikers.

    Finally, I should appreciate Rebecca Cassady's and Kristin Kidd's "background" job by doing the administration and gathering tons of health insurance information about my healing progress, which amount to a 7 inch tall stack of paper. Thank you so much all of your excellent job again,

    Thank you so much for all of your excellent work again.

  • We traveled from Utah for a two week bicycling vacation in Oregon.
    As an RV mirror struck my arm it shattered my left humerus and causing my wife to crash too with numerous injuries.  Upon returning home a friend knew this firm and reputation for handling bike v auto accidents.  We researched this law firm and on our first phone call late on a Friday afternoon, Jim Coon took the time to explain Oregon bike (friendly) law some legislated by their firm; and how his firm could help us through the insurance claim - alleviating our concerns for the claim so we could focus on healing (year long process).  The claim involved two insurance companies and a mountain of medical which his staff assisted in managing throughout the nearly two year process.  They were able to bring about the settlement we were expecting and manage our fiduciary responsibilities in the closure of the case.  Sadly we never personally met our team because they deserve a HUGE hug from these Utahan's.

  • I had heard that Ray was excellent at law for cyclists and I only wanted to be concerned with my health and well-being, so we picked him.
    The staff understood my problems and the advice always seemed to move my case in a better direction. All questions I had during my case were answered quickly and in a very timely fashion. I would recommend anyone in a cycling legal case to Ray.
