Gabriel Watson decided to start Watson Law, before enrolling to attend law school. Working as a firefighter at the time, he was forced to represent his parents after a neighbor attempted to acquire the family’s treasured vacation spot in Central Oregon. Not only was he able to win back the right to the family’s cabin, but he discovered his passion for the law, and his willingness to stop at nothing before securing desired outcomes.

Gabriel believes that what wins a case, secures an approval, and makes a business thrive, is strategy, dedication, and tireless advocacy. As an advocate—this sets him aside. Rather than telling clients what has worked best for others—Gabriel listens, learns, and appreciates exactly what sets his clients aside from others; informed by this knowledge, he approaches your representation prepared to do whatever is necessary to secure the best outcomes possible.

Watson Law opened its doors in 2019. Since then, they've worked with a variety of clients, ranging from start-up’s to small businesses, developers to investors, and individuals in need of quality legal representation. Watson Law brings an exceptional level of enthusiasm, dedication, and nuanced perspective that makes the firm the desirable for clients with a range of needs.
