Providing Salem and Willamette Valley With
Sound Legal Representation Since 1993
The Mature Approach Is The Successful One
My practice philosophy can be demonstrated with a story. An ancient Japanese proverb tells of a seasoned samurai warrior who responded to a brash young warrior’s challenge. The seasoned samurai invited the young warrior to fight him on a deserted island. The seasoned warrior rowed the brash young man out to the island while calmly listening to the upstart’s threats. Once he reached the island, the young warrior jumped out of the boat rushed to the shore for high ground, and turned to shout more threats — only to see the seasoned warrior smiling back at him as he rowed back to the mainland.
I am attorney Daniel J. Lounsbury. As a lawyer, my approach to the practice of law is similar to that of the mature warrior. Rather than always responding to threats and aggression with more of the same, I respond with creative, client-focused solutions. However, when necessary, I do not hesitate to go to battle. When my clients’ cases cannot be settled out of court, I am prepared to provide forceful, effective representation in the courtroom.
“Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker, the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough.”

“I just wanted to let you know how thankful I am for your help. I never thanked you after winning my case because of all the stress and drama at the time. There were many times when I nearly gave up. Thank you for believing in me even when I didn’t believe in myself…”
