Justin Morehouse is the newest member of Robert Raschio’s law firm in Canyon City.
Morehouse mainly works as a court-appointed criminal defense attorney for Grant and Harney counties. He also works on court-appointed juvenile dependency cases and does some general practice work, including wills, estate planning and family law.
Morehouse, who lives in John Day, says he feels at home in Grant County. He grew up on a farm in a small town in Illinois the size of John Day and Canyon City combined, he said.
Previous to starting work with Raschio, Morehouse was employed at the nonprofit Alaska Legal Services Corporation, providing legal services to low-income families in Bethel, Alaska.
“In Bethel, it was 10 minutes from the airport to the other end of town,” Morehouse said.
Bethel, a town of about 6,000, is a fly-in community on the Kuskokwim River about 400 miles east of Anchorage, he said. The area is detached from the rest of Alaska and is part of the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta Wildlife Refuge, the size of Oregon, but with a population of about 45,000 and not many roads due to the terrain.
Morehouse began building connections in the state when he moved to Oregon in 2010, earning his law degree from the University of Oregon in Eugene.
He said, after living in the Willamette and Portland area, he was tired of city living. An outdoor enthusiast, Morehouse said Grant County is a good fit for his hobbies, which include hiking, fishing and hunting. “I love the river and mountains out here,” he added.
Open! After over seven years at Morris, Smith, Starns, Raschio, & Sullivan, PC in The Dalles, four years at Mallon, Lamborn & Raschio, PC in Burns, and a year at the Law Office of Markku Sario in Canyon City, Robert Raschio has opened his own firm in Canyon City, Oregon. The firm will offer a full range of legal services but will focus primarily on representation of the accused, both indigent and privately retained. If you are being questioned by the law enforcement, if you or a loved one have been arrested, if you have a court date coming up, call, we can help.
The Oregon Public Defense Commission has honored Robert Raschio with a contract to provide indigent defense services to the 24th Judicial District of the State of Oregon. "It is an absolute privilege to be awared this contract in recognition of the good work on the behalf of so many. My firm will defend the rights of the accused from the power of the state." Mr. Raschio declared.
