Priority of attorney’s lien upon actions and judgments
(1) Except for tax liens, prior encumbrances and prior liens of record on the real or personal property subject to the lien created by ORS 87.445 (Attorney’s lien upon actions and judgments), the lien created by ORS 87.445 (Attorney’s lien upon actions and judgments) is superior to all other liens, including a lien created by ORS 147.285 (Creation of lien).
(2) When the lien of an attorney created under ORS 87.445 (Attorney’s lien upon actions and judgments) attaches to a judgment allowing or enforcing a client’s lien, the attorney’s lien has the same priority as the client’s lien with regard to personal or real property subject to the client’s lien. [1975 c.648 §68 (enacted in lieu of 87.495); 2003 c.576 §343; 2005 c.383 §12]
