Pending OSB Member Reinstatements

The following attorneys have filed an application for reinstatement as an active member of the Oregon State Bar pursuant to Rule of Procedure (BR) 8.1:

  • Pil S. Hwang of Portland, #943455

    Mr. Hwang was suspended for failure to comply with MCLE requirements in 1999 because he obtained employment outside of the legal field. Since that time, he has worked as a Financial Advisor for Phillips & Company, Financial West Group, and most recently with Wells Fargo. He plans on returning to the practice of law upon reinstatement.

  • Robert Scott Wiggins of Portland, #824290

    Mr. Wiggins transferred to inactive status in 2005 because he was not actively practicing law. He is the General Partner with Mt. Hood Equity Partners LP and also served as the CEO for Site9, Inc. He has no immediate plans to practice law upon reinstatement.

  • Noelle Y. Wilson of Spain, #971078

    Ms. Wilson was suspended for failure to pay bar fees and assessments in 2002. She received a one year suspension in 2004 (In re Wilson, 18 DB Reporter 285 (2005)). Since her suspensions, she has worked as a Sunday school teacher, a youth coach, secretary for a commercial fishing company, and as a teaching assistant. She pursued and received her teaching license at the University of Oregon during the summer of 2014. She has no plans to practice law upon reinstatement.

The Rules of Procedure require the Board of Governors to conduct an investigation of BR 8.1 reinstatement applications to determine whether applicants possess the good moral character and general fitness to practice law and whether the resumption of the practice of law in this state by the applicants will not be detrimental to the administration of justice or the public interest. Any person with information relevant to these applications is asked to contact promptly the OSB Regulatory Services Division, P.O. Box 231935, Tigard, OR 97281; phone: (503) 620-0222, or toll-free in Oregon, (800) 452-8260), ext. 343.
