VF Law and its predecessor firm trace their roots back to 1979, when founder Rich Vial began working with the Oregon Department of Real Estate reviewing condominium applications for the state. After working with a firm in downtown Portland for several years, Rich started his own law firm in 1992 and was soon joined by Rob Fotheringham in 1998 to form Vial Fotheringham LLP, who also had a solid background in real estate law, title law, business law, and estate planning.

The firm has grown significantly since then, with six offices across the Western U.S., practicing in Oregon, Utah, Idaho, Arizona, Colorado, and Washington. These offices house our committed, caring, and experienced group of lawyers and staff members.
