Experience counts. The team at Evergreen Disability Law have focused on helping individuals in need obtain benefits for most of their careers, and are ready to help you now.
Jeremy L. Bordelon
Jeremy has worked his way through the ranks in this field, starting as a paralegal for a disability benefits firm in Tennessee. He continued working there throughout law school and rejoined the firm as an attorney after graduation, magna cum laude, from the University of Tennessee College of Law. Later, Jeremy moved to Portland, where he founded Evergreen Disability Law to continue his career of helping disabled individuals obtain the benefits they need.
Prior to law school, Jeremy grew up in Acadiana, the Cajun region of south Louisiana. Later, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served five years on active duty as a Cryptologic Technician (Technical), serving first overseas, and later on fast-attack nuclear submarines. While stationed at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, he met his wife, an Oregon native. After eleven years out of the military, Jeremy recently joined the Army Reserves as a JAG attorney.
Jeremy enjoys sifting through the complex sets of rules that are involved in these practice areas, and is experienced at taking those complex rules and explaining realistic options to his clients. The unfortunate truth of this field is that sometimes, options are limited, but Jeremy enjoys helping his clients make the best of a bad situation.
