My experience with Jinoo and Northwest Legal has been nothing less than wonderful. The whole team is professional, detail oriented, and saw my estate case from start to finish. They made a stressful situation completely effortless for me. I would always call upon them first for myself, and recommend them to anyone in search of legal council.

I could not be happier with my trust set up by Northwest Legal. Jinoo doesn't just draft documents, he makes sure you know exactly what you're getting and how it works within the legal system so you can use it properly to make sure your assets remain protected.

A good lawyer I found Jinoo Hwang to be knowledgeable and professional. He assisted me in handling a probate case and did so in a timely fashion, in spite of restrictions connected with the pandemic and an unforeseen expansion of case load. I've had experience with several lawyers and Jinoo ranks at the top of my list.


responsive and efficient My dealings with Jinoo Hwang were brief. During that time he was quick to respond, direct and efficient, not wasting anyone's time or my money, which of course I appreciated.


Without a doubt, Northwest Legal law firm is, indeed, top notch; professionalism and end results were outstanding. Yet, what I most appreciated during the process was that Jinoo listened to and articulated my concerns as though he were walking in my shoes. That is a rare gift.

Top notch service with one of a kind care! I met today with Jinoo Hwang for a business one to one meeting through our relationship with the Eugene area chamber of commerce. I was greeted warmly and felt that I was speaking to a true professional and courteous lawyer. Jinoo was thorough in his thought process, genuine, supportive and highly knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Northwest Legal to anyone seeking professional and compassionate representation. The building on Oak Street is very beautiful inside with a friendly doorman as well. Easy Parking, and an all around wonderful experience.

I want to express my gratitude to Jinoo for his compassion and concern regarding a need to seek guardianship for a loved one.He listened and listened and was able to give me so much insight into the process and help me develop a plan.I really can't thank him enough for the direction and help!

Jinoo and the team at Northwest legal were very professional and a pleasure to interact with. I came here for some legal advice for a slightly unusual property related question. I have a bit of social anxiety and yet Jinoo made me feel comfortable enough to speak openly and frankly. He listened to all of my concerns and questions and it is clear he is very good at understanding different personality types and how best to resolve conflict. He went above and beyond what I expected (I only went for an initial consultation) and I'm putting all of his advice into action. If you are on the fence about at least asking for some legal advice regarding property related concerns, I would highly recommend checking with this firm to see if they can help you or point you in the right direction.

Jinoo and his team at NW Legal are incredibly professional, knowledgeable, honest, and just all-around great at what they do! Jinoo has helped me get a clear step in the right direction for personal matters and business. I recommend 100%!!!

Genevieve Partsch

Jinoo was a huge help to me. Many of us would not normally think of a lawyer as being compassionate and kind, but this is exactly how I would describe him. It turned out that I needed a different type of legal assistance than he provided, but he gave me a lot of helpful advice and the names of a few people he recommended at no charge. I am beyond grateful.

Got the job done! We hired Jinoo to assist us in the termination of a lease on our rental property. The lessee had been uncooperative with us up to that point. It was time to call in the heavy hitters. Jinoo’s firm, no nonsense manner got the ball rolling and we got the results we wanted.


When in need of a lawyer - highly recommended I have had two occasions to consult, than hire Attorney Jinoo Hwang. One for estate planning advice, the second for counsel on how best to work through what became a contentious sale. On both occasions, Jinoo was first clear about process and costs. Then, very clear about options and their likely outcome. Attorneys are expensive whether you hire an excellent or inferior person. In my perspective the cost savings, and as importantly, peace of mind of acquiring excellent counsel easily justifies the cost. If I should again find myself in need of legal counsel, I will without hesitation, call Jinoo Hwang.


A good attorney.

Jinoo helped me out with everything I needed to know. He is an amazing person, simply an angel and I thank God that someone out there in this world was able to give me the information I have long been seeking since my father passed away. Thank you Jinoo from the bottom of my heart, you an absolute angel. If you need real advice that you have been longing for please don't hesitate and take Jinoo as your lawyer, he is a real saint and I bet he could also be a shark lol. He's the best. Thank you Jinoo.

A extremely satisfied customer We retained Mr. Hwang to handle a probate case that involved a very volatile relationship involving the two co representatives, so volatile in fact another lawyer previously hired had asked and was excused from said case. Mr. Hwang graciously took on the challenge and through his calm demeanor and extreme professionalism was able to resolve the dispute and bring the case to a final closure. Constant updates were the standard and greatly appreciated, as were timely returns of e mails and phone calls. In closing my wife and I are extremely pleased with the service Mr. Hwang and his capable assistant Jacob Dill provided and would emphatically use them again, a true credit to their profession.


I highly recommend NWL and JInoo Hwang particularly. I emailed with some questions and Jinoo called me right away. He spoke to me with clear and plain advice that was spot on in regards to our inquiry. Jinoo is very personable and down to earth as well as professional and to the point. I appreciated his time, knowledge, and concern for getting us the information we needed.

Teresa Richards

Jinoo and his team at Northwest Legal helped me navigate a very difficult situation that I was left to handle. It was a tenant and trust combination monster of a problem and he helped us resolve it just as he said he would. Jinoo is organized, detail oriented and knowledgable in his profession. I could not have asked for anything better during such a stressful time. Someone at Northwest Legal was always there to take my phone call and address my concerns as they came up almost immediately. Not only can you expect thorough and professional work but also kindness from this team.

Avalon Ruzicka

Northwest Legal took over an estate I was probating after a conflict emerged with the previous attorney. The assistance offered was timely, competent, cost-effective, and practical. There were other complications in this estate, including problems with the IRS and federal tax refunds, and the firm was able to secure the right kind of assistance to resolve that issue with the IRS. I was always kept informed of what was happening, with emails that described the progress and next steps. Ihighly recommend this firm.

Susan Ackerman

Jinoo is the most compassionate professional attorney I have had the honor of working with. His team works likes a well oiled machine.

Kim Arscott

A Great Help I was very impressed with Jinoo and the help he gave me. I’m very happy he was the one I found. His advice was very helpful and I believe it saved me a lot of time and money. Jinoo could have taken on a long expensive case but instead chose to do the right thing by giving the right advice. If I ever need someone to help me in the future, he will be the one I call.


My wife and I are Calif residence and the death of both of her parents in Oregon left logistical problems with their estate not to mention contention and disagreement among two other siblings who resided in other states. Jinoo as well as his staff not only navigated through these disruptive issues but did it in a professional way and often as an arbiter to resolve the closing of the estate in a timely way to the satisfaction of all concerned.

Albert Demuth

Easy to speak with, professional and gave great advice. Felt like he was trying to help me and not just make a buck.

Shane Oram

Jinoo is one of the sharpest lawyers I've had the pleasure of working with.He is honest, friendly, and thoughtful. His suggestions and thought process take the consultative approach.Jinoo is my goto lawyer for legal advice and referrals (if it is an area of law he doesn't practice) because he is well connected and is willing to make a "handshake" introduction

Ravi Brounstein

We were looking for a good local attorney to help us with a couple of legal services (wills, etc.). I left Jinoo a message and he responded, after hours, on the same day. Based on that, we set up a meeting and the rest is history. Jinoo and his staff are professionals through and through. Jinoo is the kind of lawyer you want working for you. Yes, he is extremely well versed in the law. Yes, he is very knowledgeable. Beyond those two key elements (and I cannot emphasize this enough), he makes it personal and that meant a great deal to us. We weren't just a couple of new clients...he spent time getting to know us, understanding what we needed and wanted and helping us define that in a way that could be put to paper. It wasn't a cookie cutter approach and we weren't just two more names in his book. I highly recommend Jinoo and his staff.

Janiece Woodland

Very pleased with the way I'm treated and how respectful and responsive they are.

Mr. Hwang is very professional, Was prepared to answer all of my questions and offered a variety of solutions to my problem.

Jinoo counseled me as I navigated my family through some messy interpersonal disharmony. Although I didn’t know it when I first met him, he is obviously a man who is well trained in conflict resolution and negotiation. But beyond those developed skills, he had a unbelievably good ear and empathetic heart. He immediately understood what stresses were involved in the conflict and set up a plan to work toward an amicable resolution. His guidance was invaluable.

Last year I was given a referral to the offices of Northwest Legal and Jinoo Hwang. I can't tell you how fortunate I felt to have Northwest Legal services and resources at a difficult time in my life. Jinoo is very knowledgeable and helped me break down the tasks I needed to accomplish. He was available whenever I had questions. Not only was his legal advice on spot, but I felt emotionally supported during a challenging time.
