Our Firm History


Dunn Carney traces its roots to the Portland firm Maguire, Shields & Morrison, founded in 1930. In the mid-1960s, the firm was renamed Morrison & Bailey, becoming Morrison, Dunn, Cohen, Miller & Carney in the mid-1970s, and Dunn Carney Allen Higgins & Tongue LLP in the mid-1980s. Later, the Oregon State Bar dropped its rule that firm names must exclude the names of deceased partners. In 2017, we became Dunn Carney LLP.

Still quite alive and practicing law with the firm as Senior Counsel are Thomas H. Tongue (left) and Robert L. Allen (right). Both served as managing partner and continue as respected mentors.
