Who We Are
At the Law Office of John E. Haapala, Jr., we practice only Social Security disability law and federal appeals. When you contact our office, either April or John will answer. Prior to entering the field of law, John worked as a farmer and advocate for organic farming. John and April still live on a sixteen acre organic farm on the banks of the Willamette River in Junction City, Oregon, where April breeds chickens and tends her orchard. John and April have five mostly grown children (Samara, Rowan, Summer, Dianna, and Stella), four cats, and a border collie. Our hobbies include hiking, motorcycling, golfing, and of working on the farm. We enjoy engaging with our community through church, the Oregon Country Fair, and our shared pursuits.
Who We Are Not
We are not a large “box” firm reaching out to clients throughout the U.S. We stick to where we practice, and only service clients that are within our geographical area (within four hours drive of Eugene, Oregon). We like to meet our clients face to face, and come to know them personally. We believe that helping people get their Social Security disability benefits is only one of many ways we help our clients.
