Mr. Romano attended Southern Oregon University (formerly Southern Oregon State College) in Ashland, Oregon where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science, with a minor degree in Philosophy. He then received his Juris Doctorate at Willamette University College of Law in Salem, Oregon. While in law school, Mr. Romano clerked for the Marion County District Attorney’s Office and developed a taste for trial work. He was then admitted to the Oregon State Bar in 2000 and began his career as a prosecutor working in Klamath, Coos, and Deschutes Counties. In early 2006, he then opened his private practice in Bend, Oregon with a strong focus on family law and criminal defense. In 2013, Mr. Romano opened an additional office in downtown Portland, Oregon. Mr. Romano has personally tried hundreds of jury trials, tried numerous bench trials, conducted traditional and video-recorded depositions, and has spent literally thousands of hours in courtrooms around Oregon. Mr. Romano stays current with changes in the law by consistently exceeding the minimum Continuing Legal Education requirements set by the Oregon State Bar.

Legal Answers
  • Q. Is it legal for me to carry a collapsible baton in Oregon?
    A: The answer is a bit complicated. I actually wrote an article on this topic, which you can read here: https://romanolawpc.com/expandable-collapsible-batons-legal-oregon/ The reason I saw that the answer is a bit complicated is because Oregon does not have a specific law that clarifies one way or another whether collapsible batons are legal. Similarly, Oregon does not have a specific law that clarifies one way or another whether collapsible batons are legal to carry concealed in Oregon. However, there is case law that appears to indicate that carrying a concealed baton-- or any other item designed to primarily be used as a weapon-- is illegal. In short, you can possess and open carry a collapsible baton in Oregon legally provided that it's not concealed or otherwise prohibited based on your status or location. For example, if you're on probation it could be unlawful. Also, if you're in a location that doesn't allow weapons, it'd be unlawful as well.
