Young Walgenkim


Young Walgenkim has been passionate about fighting for the rights of consumers since childhood. Growing up as a son of Korean immigrants, Young witnessed his parents repeatedly fall victim to scams and unscrupulous businesses. During law school, Young worked at the Financial Fraud/Consumer Protection section of the Oregon Department of Justice, where he learned the skills to fight for the rights of consumers.  

Since starting his law practice in 2012, Young has been suing car dealers all across the state for numerous violations of state and federal law. Whatever your problem may be, Young is eager to stand up against car dealers on your behalf.
