Marc Johnston & OTLA Included in February Issue of Trial Magazine
Marc was recently featured in the February 2021 issue of TRIAL magazine. The article, written by Maureen Leddy, talks about Marc coming up with the idea for the pro bono clinics after seeing evacuees along roadways and at gas stations, and cars packed with possessions with nowhere to go. “I knew we had to move quickly,” Marc said, who contacted OTLA leadership about helping fire victims with filing property insurance claims. OTLA and AAJ stepped up and offered resources like a series of free videos for homeowners, businesses and renters who were affected by the Oregon wildfires.

Marc and his family were forced to evacuate their home in Clackamas County when wildfires approached. Marc was among the OTLA members who organized a pro bono effort to help the families affected by the wildfires. Read the full article here.
Marc Johnston Announced as Regional Captain for the Clackamas County Pro Bono Efforts for Oregon Wildfire Victims
Marc Johnston and his family were evacuated during phase 2 of Clackamas County evacuations and saw how traumatic and devastating these wildfires have been to people living throughout Oregon. As a trial attorney, Marc’s entire life’s work has been devoted to helping people and he knew that his fellow associates in the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association would answer the call and volunteer time and resources to help Oregonians in need. Over 70 attorneys have joined the cause in offering Pro Bono legal resources in the communities hit the hardest by the recent wildfires.
