Co-Managing Partner, Kell, Alterman & Runstein, LLP
Dennis Steinman is a leading franchising and commercial lawyer at Kell, Alterman & Runstein, LLP. He was a franchise executive for nearly 20 years, and he also owned five franchises of his own, giving him experience in both sides of the business. He’s also one of Oregon’s leading civil rights lawyers and is widely recognized for his litigation under the American Sign Language. In addition, Dennis is an adjunct professor at law at Lewis & Clark Law School, where he teaches federal litigation. He’s also a former member of the board of directors for the Oregon Advocacy Center (presently known as Disability Rights Oregon) and has written several articles on and frequently speaks about the legal importance of the ADA and the Fair Housing Act.
Raised in Manhattan, Dennis moved to Portland in 1976 to pursue a business opportunity in franchising. He attended Lewis & Clark Law School as a means of furthering his business expertise but decided instead to open a private practice. He later joined Kell, Alterman & Runstein, LLP., impressed by the firm’s dedication to legal excellence, personal service, and community commitment. He enjoys a reputation as a zealous advocate of clients’ rights with a strong attention to detail. He’s also known for blending practicality into his practice, often exploring less divisive and expensive alternatives to litigation such as medication or arbitration. In his off hours, Dennis is a travel enthusiast and dedicated food, wine, and music lover, and he often combines those pursuits while visiting Europe and other continents. Dennis also lived in Rome and for years explored the oceans of the world as an avid scuba diver.
Our events, classes, and seminars bring the community together to hear, learn, and discuss the most compelling issues and ideas of our day. We hope you will join us in our downtown Literary Arts space, online, and at partnering venues across Portland and Oregon.
