Intellectual Property Law Lawyers In Raymond Washington

Raymond is a city in Pacific County, Washington, United States. The population was 2,975 at the 2000 census. The city of Raymond is mainly supported by the logging industry. Raymond experiences a large amount of annual rainfall and the skies above the city are filled with dark clouds for a majority of the year. The people of the town typically enjoy outdoor recreational activities such as hunting, fishing, and riding off-road vehicles. Because of its relative isolation (being more than two hours away from both Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon) and its shortage of career and educational opportunities, a large percentage of people who grow up and go to school in Raymond eventually leave the town to attend college or find jobs in cities with more schools and a more diverse economy. Those who do stay in the town typically retain a strong sense of hometown pride and have an unbreakable sentimentality towards the city's rich forest environment and slow-paced lifestyle.
