PORTLAND, Ore. (January 29, 2024) Tonkon Torp LLP is excited to welcome attorney Eric Levine to its Litigation Department. Levine is experienced in appeals and complex civil litigation. He joins the firm from the Office of the Attorney General for the District of Columbia, where he was a Charles F.C. Ruff Fellow in the Office of the Solicitor General.

“Joining a firm with strong connections to the local community was important to me – after having spent the last eight years out-of-state getting an education and beginning my career, I’m excited to return to Oregon and make a difference in my home state,” Levine said. “Tonkon Torp is full of great people and great attorneys. It was clear that they would help support me in my goals and further develop my trial and appellate practices.”

In his litigation practice, Levine has authored briefs filed in state and federal courts, including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and the D.C. Court of Appeals. He has also contributed to amicus briefs filed with the Supreme Court of the United States.

“We are thrilled that Eric has joined our litigation team,” shared Caroline Harris Crowne, Co-Chair of Tonkon Torp’s Litigation Department. “He brings valuable experience in appellate matters, and we are confident he will hit the ground running and be a great asset to our firm and clients.”

Eric is a graduate, cum laude, of The George Washington University Law School. There, he was an associate of The George Washington Law Review, a teaching assistant for the first-year legal writing course, a research assistant, a tutor of five subjects, and an executive board member of the GW chapter of the ACLU. During law school, Eric also worked for the Office of the Solicitor General, Common Cause of Oregon, and a personal injury law firm.
