C. Peter Sorenson
ATTORNEY AT LAW
I’m Peter Sorenson – an experienced attorney, lawyer, and advocate, licensed to practice law for over 30 years. At my law firm, Sorenson Law Office, we specialize in matters under the federal Freedom of Information Act, or FOIA. The Freedom of Information Act was enacted in 1967 to provide any person the right to request access to records or information from any federal agency (with nine exemptions).
With the firm since 2018, Business Manager and Senior Legal Assistant, Ms. Leval, brings 30 years of non-profit and executive background to our FOIA work. A creative writer of poetry and fiction, she is shopping her first historical novel to literary agents. She holds a BA in International Studies and Cultural Anthropology from the University of Oregon and a Master’s in Adult Education and Agricultural Extension from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. She resides in Eugene, Oregon, with her husband, Pete Sorenson, and their yellow Lab puppy, Goldie. Pastimes: spending time with family and friends, forest bathing, hiking, gardening, traveling, and sharing good food.
Ms. Mendez joined the firm in 2021 as a full-time Legal Assistant. She earned a BA in Psychology and minored in Ethnic Studies and Legal Studies at the University of Oregon. She studied abroad in Argentina focusing on Human Rights and Transitional Justice. She resides in Eugene, Oregon with her fiancè and their adorable cat, Sophia. Ms. Mendez advocates for clean eating and sustainable and healthy living. She likes being out in nature walking (with their stroller-loving cat), hiking, relaxing by water and sunshine, traveling, being with friends, making desserts, reading mystery thrillers, and international series.
Ms. Josephson is a third year law student at the University of Oregon and Senior Law Clerk at the Sorenson Law Office. She joined the firm in 2020 as a legal assistant before earning a B.S. in Planning, Public Policy, and Management from the University of Oregon in 2021. She serves on several nonprofit boards and enjoys volunteering in her local community. She lives in Eugene, Oregon with her wife, Brayley, and their dog, Forrest.
