Welcome Karen!

The OAAP is pleased to announce that Karen A. Neri, JD, has joined the OAAP as an attorney counselor and group facilitator.

Karen earned her law degree from the New College of California, School of Law, in 2006. She is in the process of obtaining her MA in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling at George Fox University, a degree that will prepare her for attaining dual licensure as a Professional Counselor (LPC) and Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT).

Prior to joining the OAAP staff in 2018, Karen worked as an associate attorney in California, with a focus on family law, personal injury, and general civil litigation. She subsequently was a sole practitioner, until her move to Oregon. Her legal work exposed her to diverse clients seeking guidance on personal matters, including those relating to divorce, domestic violence, and mental health.

Karen joins our three OAAP attorney counselors, Shari R. Gregory, LCSW, JD; Douglas S. Querin, JD, LPC, CADC I; Bryan R. Welch, JD, CADC I; and OAAP group facilitator Kyra M. Hazilla, JD, LCSW.
