About Ross

Ross Day and his wife Shelley have lived, worked and raised their family in Keizer since 1999, nearly 21 years. As a local attorney and small business owner, husband and father, and experienced leader in Keizer, Ross knows our city is great—and he wants to keep it that way.

Ross has been an attorney in Oregon for 20 years and currently runs his own practice, Day Law, P.C. that he founded in 2011. Ross’ practice focuses on land use, real estate and real estate transactions, civil litigation, administrative law, non-profit corporations, civil rights litigation, special education law, contracts and business entities, and general civil litigation. Ross currently runs his practice virtually from his home in Keizer.

In addition to his career as a lawyer, Ross was appointed to and served on the City of Keizer’s Planning Commission from 2000 through 2004, the Oregon Capital Planning Commission from 2001 to 2005, and also worked as an adjunct professor of political science at Chemeketa Community College from 2000 through 2012.

A long-time advocate for good government and citizens’ rights, Ross served as the Director of Legal Affairs at Oregonians In Action in 2003, the largest private-property rights group of its kind in the country.  Ross’ focus while at Oregonians In Action was on land use, property rights, real estate law, election law, and non-profit corporation law.

Ross co-founded Common Sense For Oregon and served as its Executive Director until January of 2011.  Common Sense For Oregon focused on highlighting wasteful government spending, identifying government inefficiencies, and protecting the right of the people to access the ballot via the initiative and referendum.

Ross received his undergraduate degree from Oregon State University and his Masters Degree in Political Management from George Washington University before attending Willamette University College of Law in Salem. After graduating from Willamette with his law degree in 2000, Ross worked as an associate attorney with the law firm O’Donnell & Clark, LLP where he focused on land use, property rights, election law, special education law, and general civil litigation.

Ross and his wife Shelley have lived in Keizer since 1999. Ross and Shelley have three children – Jess, aged 20, Logan, aged 17 and Audrey, aged 14.  All three have been born while living in Keizer.  Jess is a graduate of McNary High School in Keizer while Logan and Audrey attend Blanchet Catholic School in Salem, Oregon.

Ross and his family attend St. Edwards church in Keizer, Oregon. Ross and his family volunteer for Camp Attitude, Oregon, which is a camp located just east of Sweet Home, Oregon. Camp Attitude provides a summer camp experience for special needs families and is a cause that is near-and-dear to Ross’ heart.
