Cable & Huston LLP

30 years ago, the earliest iteration of Cable Huston (pronounced, “Cable Houston”) was formed with the express purpose of providing clients superior legal guidance without the overhead costs, hierarchy, and inaccessibility that are common at much larger law firms. In that time, largely through the generous word-of-mouth marketing of our clients, Cable Huston has grown into one of the strongest boutique law firms in the Pacific Northwest.

Cable Huston represents Oregon’s largest companies, professional sports team, public utilities, and municipalities, while still providing full legal services to estates and individuals. We take great pride in our work and in the clients we have earned through that work. Over the last five years, the vision of Cable Huston’s founders has been validated — the firm’s focus on delivering top legal services without unnecessary costs has proven ideal for our private- and public- sector clients in the “new economy.”

The key ingredient to Cable Huston’s success is transparency and direct access. Our attorneys focus on the process of getting to know our clients’ needs, motivations, and vulnerabilities so that we understand the contingencies they face and provide optimal solutions.
