Kelly Andersen, a personal injury-plaintiff attorney in Medford, Oregon, has loved the outdoors ever since herding cattle on horseback as a child in the Manti-La Sal National Forest. Now in his 60s, he continues to cycle long distances (including STP, the annual 200-mile ride between Seattle and Portland) and climb mountains. Here Andersen reaches the summit of California’s Mount Shasta in July 2017.

Andersen’s story was featured in the 2018 issue of Oregon Super Lawyers.

“One of the ways I’ve been able to stay fresh is having a healthy balance between the practice of law and being out in nature. I try to work out at least an hour a day, six days a week. I feel that I’m a better attorney because I climb mountains, ride bicycles and ride horses.”
