Jim Hunsaker began his law career in Castle Rock, Colorado and then moved to a large regional law firm in Denver.  After practicing law in Colorado for 17 years, he and his wife realized a life-long dream of moving "back" to Canby, Oregon. Jim's wife, Wendy Peters Hunsaker, attended high school in Canby and has had family living here for more than 100 years. Jim was blessed to have the opportunity to practice law with Roger Reif and to purchase his practice. Roger and his father, Ray Reif, practiced law in Canby for many decades. Jim concentrates his practice in the fields of estate planning, probate, trust formation and administration, business formation and advice, and real estate matters.  He is active in the Canby community.  As a former Naval Officer, Jim served aboard the USS Antietam (CG 54) and was decorated for service during Operation Desert Shield.
