Christopher Heaps

Christopher Heaps joined Jim Slothower in 2012 after practicing law with Oregon’s largest law firm in Portland to form Bend Orgeon Lawyers, LLC. The firm handles civil litigation, business, real estate, land use, agriculture, forestry, water, natural resources, environmental, natural resources, and trust and estate. Our singular goal is to provide our clients with the highest quality work and client service.

Chris moved to Oregon in 1999 after earning a PhD in cognitive psychology. He attended law school the University of Washington in Seattle and then began practicing law in Portland with Oregon’s largest law firm, Stoel Rives. There, he worked on business, real estate, land use, and natural resource matters for many big companies.

After leaving Stoel Rives, Chris worked as Director of Business Development for Ormat Technologies, a Reno-based geothermal development company. Chris managed nearly a dozen geothermal exploration projects in Oregon, Washington, and Hawaii. He also negotiated large land acquisition deals and joint ventures for US-based geothermal projects.

Chris moved to Bend in 2012 and founded Bend Oregon Lawyers, LLC with Jim Slothower. Chris loves working with the people and small businesses of Central Oregon, and he and his wife can’t believe it took them this long to end up in Bend. They spend much of their free time hiking, biking, and paddling around the Northwest with their dog.
