Talia Y. Guerriero

Talia Guerriero’s background in labor and union rights enriches her decade-long employment law practice, which includes her previous roles with the esteemed firms of Meyer Stephenson and Bennett Hartman. She has always been a strong voice for the underdog, and her passion for social justice and civil rights defines her. She is recognized by SuperLawyers as a “Rising Star” (2016-2021) and as a “SuperLawyer” (2022) and by Avvo with a “Superb” rating. Talia serves on the Board of the Oregon Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA), as Chair of OTLA’s Minority Caucus, and was selected to be a member of the 2021-2022 OTLA Leadership Academy.

Using the law as a tool to empower clients on a path to justice is at the heart of Talia’s practice. She represents workers in state and federal courts as well as before administrative agencies and boards. Her significant litigation experience includes discrimination and retaliation claims both in the workplace and in public accommodations as well as bringing multiple wage and hour class actions to final approval and being recognized as an expert for an employment discrimination fee petition.

Her advocacy has also helped workers achieve groundbreaking wins. For example, Talia acted as local counsel for the National Center for Lesbian Rights, representing a transgender worker in her fight to get necessary medical care covered under insurance. Together, the team secured an incredible settlement, likely changing the way employers handle insurance coverage for transgender employees.

An accomplished presenter, Talia regularly speaks and writes about employment law. Past topics at conferences and seminars include conducting discovery, identifying sexual harassment in the workplace, addressing pregnancy discrimination, creating more transgender-friendly workplaces, and understanding implicit bias and microaggressions. The U.C. Davis Journal of Juvenile Law and Policy published her article on implementing effective non-discrimination policies for LGBTQ youth in foster care. You can watch her tips on Oregon laws that prohibit discrimination against LGBTQ people in the workplace here.

She stays active teaching cycle and yoga and enjoying the great Oregon outdoors with her beloved family, including two terrible terriers named Cherry Blossom and Dandy Lion.
