Jinoo Hwang was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon. His diverse background in government, business, and education equips him with a creative approach to legal issues. Simply put, Jinoo’s background makes him a better lawyer. Before law school, he owned a successful multi-state publishing company (9 years), actively managed real estate investments, and worked as an adjunct instructor for the University of Oregon (16 years). Early on in his legal career, Jinoo knew it would be important to obtain an intimate knowledge of the court system. He worked as a judicial clerk for the Hon. Charles D. Carlson before completing work as a trial lawyer and prosecutor for the Lane County District Attorney office. Following his work in the public sector, Jinoo's practice has focused specifically on estates, business law, and real estate transactions. Of course, he also makes the occasional departure to help his many friends in the community who routinely seek his counsel. Jinoo is married to his wife of over 20 years. His children attend Marist High School and Wheaton College.
