My name is Salvatore “Sal” Catalano, and I am a lawyer based in Eugene, Oregon. I make house calls in western Oregon and beyond. I am mobile and provide legal services coming directly to you, the client.
Originally from Florida, I am a former restaurant owner, landlord, and real estate broker. My family and I moved to Eugene where I earned my law degree at the University of Oregon with separate certificates in Estate Planning and Tax Law.
My style of business is simple. I operate a mobile law practice and come to you, the client.
I can meet at your home, business, or other convenient location instead of you coming to meet me. This convenience allows you to proceed through your day without the interruption of traveling to and from my office. It also allows you to feel more comfortable in familiar surroundings while never having to sit in a waiting room.
I make use of the latest technology in all aspects of my business in order to work smarter and reduce costs, passing on these savings and benefits to you in the form of lower fees.
I also offer upfront, flat-fee pricing to keep the guesswork out of the cost of my services. There will never be a surprise fee or cost.

LandWatch promotes responsible and sustainable land use policies. It wishes to protect our farm & forest lands and natural areas and to preserve the high quality of life we enjoy here for ourselves and future generations.

Catalano Law P.C. performs law-related services for LandWatch at reduced rates or pro bono (free of charge).
Lane County Legal Aid is a locally governed non-profit law firm with over 40 years of experience in serving the legal needs of Lane County’s poor.
As the area’s oldest and best-known provider of poverty law services, it is committed to protecting access to justice for its most vulnerable residents. Senior Law Service helps meet the civil legal needs of Lane County seniors over the age of 60.
Catalano Law P.C. began volunteering its services to Senior Law Service in 2016 and continues to do so on a regular basis.
Oregon Benefit Company
Catalano Law P.C. is registered with the Oregon Secretary of State as an Oregon benefit company. A benefit company is a type of corporation or limited liability company that wants to consider its impact on society and the environment in the business decision-making process, in addition to earning a profit. Such companies adopt a triple bottom line framework commonly known as People, Planet, and Profit.
Each Oregon benefit company is required to assess itself by a third-party standard to ensure that it is creating a positive impact. Catalano Law P.C. assesses itself by the standard of Green America in which businesses adopt principles, policies, and practices that improve the quality of life for their customers, employees, communities, and the planet.
Catalano Law P.C. creates a positive impact by:
- Actively using its business as a tool for positive social change by volunteering time and advice for the Senior Law Service of Lane County Legal Aid;
- Operating a “values-driven” enterprise according to principles of social justice and environmental sustainability when it performs discounted or pro bono services for the non-profit organization, LandWatch Lane County; and
- Being environmentally responsible in the way it sources and markets its services by primarily availing itself of the benefits of like-minded businesses and by operating a digital law practice that is largely paperless, thus minimizing its carbon footprint.
With an estate planning practice, paper use is ultimately necessary, and Catalano Law P.C. uses sugarcane-based or other tree-free paper.
