Larkins Vacura LLP is pleased to announce that Bill Larkins and Julie Vacura were again recognized as Super Lawyers in the 2014 issue of Oregon Super Lawyers, signifying their place in the top 5% of all lawyers in Oregon. Bill has maintained that designation since 2009, and Julie has done so since 2007. The same publication also named Cody Hoesly and Danielle Hunsaker as Rising Stars, signifying their place in the top 2.5% of all Oregon litigators under 40 or in their first 10 years of practice.

Congratulations to Cody Hoesly on his recent victory for a client who sued to regain possession of a precious family heirloom, the queen outfit that the client’s mother-in-law wore at the 1930 Pendleton Round-Up. The lawsuit resulted in a settlement which returned the outfit to the client and which garnered attention in both the Oregonian and East Oregonian newspapers. The settlement followed Cody’s victory in the Oregon Supreme Court in the same case.
