Oregon Paralegal Association (OPA)
The Oregon Paralegal Association (OPA) is a statewide nonprofit organization, with a Southwest Washington chapter, and was formed in 1979 as the Oregon Legal Assistants Association. OPA is the forefront in meeting the needs of its members and listens to its inner voice (the members themselves) to determine its direction.
