Patricia “Trish” Eichar became a partner at Orrick in January. She joined Orrick in August 2007 after serving as an extern for five months with Hon. Consuelo M. Callahan of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
Trish splits her legal practice between the Orrick offices in Portland, Oregon and Sacramento, California. “It’s unpredictable,” she said. “I split my time and I’m where I’m needed when I’m needed.” Her home is Beaverton, Oregon with her husband and two step children but she also has family in Sacramento.
Trish advises the State of California on general obligation bond issuance and also has served as special counsel to the California Statewide Communities Development Authority for the last 10 years. She manages land-secured bond issuances for CSCDA’s Statewide Community Infrastructure Program for community facilities districts and pooled assessment districts.
She also serves as lead bond counsel to Folsom, Lincoln, San Luis Obispo and other California cities.
In Oregon she has served as underwriter, disclosure and bond counsel to the State of Oregon on its general obligation bond issuances for the last five year.
Other clients include the Oregon Facilities Authority and Oregon University System.
