ORS 9.720
Court taking jurisdiction over law practice

If the court finds that it has jurisdiction and finds that the assumption of such jurisdiction is necessary in order to protect the interest of the clients of the affected attorney or to protect the public interest, the court may, by appropriate order, immediately take jurisdiction over the law practice of the affected attorney to the extent the court determines is necessary. The exercise of jurisdiction may extend only to the affected attorney’s lawyer trust account or may include all legal files, clients’ trust funds, clients’ property and all books, records, funds and property used in the law practice of the affected attorney. [1979 c.252 §5; 2015 c.6 §4]
