Law Firm Joins ‘League of NO’
Attorneys Move to Defend Right to Litigate on the Klamath
Portland, OR – Today law partners Ian Security, Hiam Power, and Les Waters spoke out against stability and security in the Klamath Basin alleging that it would undermine the basin’s litigation based economy. Their comments were made in Portland while enjoying sips of shade grown, GMO-free, organic, fair trade, latte’ sweetened with pure brown cane suger -soy, no milk.
“We join with our clients in opposition to the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement which will end litigation as we know it in the Klamath Basin and force lawyers, political extremists of all stripes, and land developers out of work,” stated lawyer Ian Security.
The Firm’s comments come as local KBRA opponents host a meeting to vociferously agree with one another and lay waste to their own self interests today in Klamath Falls.
“This deal would be the end of the Klamath as we know it,” said local elected Doug Missedit, a client of the Firm. “We have a God given American right to ensure that future generations can enjoy the same fear and anxiety as their parents as they struggle to make a living on the family farm! My base expects me to put an end to all attempts at compromise and problem solving and I aim to deliver.”
The Law Firm believes that the KBRA puts an unfair risk on the livelihoods of lawyers, political ideologues and land developers while favoring elite family farmers, ranchers, Tribal and commercial fishermen, and related small businesses. “It is simply un-American to favor local farmers and fishermen over lawyers from Portland and San Francisco. The next thing you know they’ll be having a salmon and potato festival in the middle of Klamath Falls and down river kids will be dancing with up river kids!”
The Firm plans to re-double donations to Oregon Mild, the Resource Conservancy and other groups sharing their commitment to status quo.

Testimonials from Satisfied Clients
“I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help of Security, Power and Waters. I mean, unless people are kept in a constant state of fear and anxiety how could an ideologically driven political extremist like me ever get elected?”
Local elected official
“Unless problems remain unresolved, you can’t expect radical environmental groups to scare people into writing checks to our organizations. Without the talented partners at Security, Power, and Waters we could never have maintained status quo so long!”
“When farming has a future, land developers don’t. Thankfully, Power, Security, and Waters are here to help me turn risky family farm businesses into ranchettes for the wealthy!”
