i think this is a nice looking plant but i've been fooled before. the purple blooms are very intricate and seem almost orchid like. is this a bad weed?

Viola odorata/Sweet Violet maybe? Definitely a Violet of some kind.

I agree, looks like a Viola of some type; possibly Marsh Violet (Viola adunca) which is found in Oregon but there may be others as well:
