Ron K. Cheng is a plaintiff personal injury trial lawyer. He runs a small law firm in downtown Portland. Ron has tried over a dozen cases in his career and has briefed and argued cases at the Oregon Court of Appeals and the Oregon Supreme Court. He serves as a board member for the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association and the Lewis & Clark Law Alumni Board. He was recently honored with the Oregon State Bar President’s Diversity & Inclusion Award.
Since graduating law school, there has never been a day that Ron has felt caught up with work. For every problem he resolved, two more would spring up in its place. How do we tackle the hydra that is the practice of law? Ron will admit, he can be a bit of a workaholic and he would say that his priorities are not always right. However, even though he hasn’t mastered the intersection between work and personal life, he feels he is a lot closer now than he was before. Ron looks forward to sharing five practical strategies that he has found to help create balance so that he is not just a good lawyer for his clients, but a good friend to his loved ones.
2023 SPEAKER SERIES: PRACTICING INCLUSIVITY
Each calendar year, the Queen’s Bench monthly CLEs and events focus on a different theme. In 2023, the theme of Queen’s Bench lunchtime CLE series is “Practicing Inclusivity.” At our monthly, free CLEs open to all, you will hear touching stories from women-identified professionals (including but not limited to lawyers) who have overcome extraordinary challenges to become leaders in our state.
Queen’s Bench CLEs are now being held in-person at the Multnomah County Central Courthouse, and are also simulcast on WebEx, the second Tuesday of the month from noon until 1 PM.
Lunch can be ordered here before EOB 10/6
