From a practicing attorney

Michelle is a first-rate attorney with very high integrity. I recently referred an existing client to Michelle because of a conflict. She handled the matter skillfully, efficiently, and got a great outcome for my client. She kept me appropriately updated on the status of the matter, and when the matter was complete she handed my very happy client back to me without a hitch … I would highly recommend Michelle for any legal matters, and practitioners can feel confident that any client matters you refer to her will be handled with zeal and integrity.

If I need an attorney, she is my first call

… I originally hired Michelle to help fight some unfair rules being proposed by a regulatory agency in Oregon. Not only did she put a stop to the unfair rule proposals, she also helped me get legislation on the Oregon House Floor that helps me and thousands of working women in the state of Oregon …

Michelle, thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing what you did. You sacrificed your time, your resources for us and helped mentor us at the same time! You created a pathway for our amazing field that will live on in the future of Oregon for generations.

Great attorney and outcome

Michelle was indeed excellent … The advice she gave me was great; I might have made some big mistakes without her, and we ended up prevailing. Her manner was serious but not intimidating – in fact, she sent me a warm note of thanks after the case was done. I’ll use her again if I need help, and I’ll definitely refer her.

Strong recommendation for Michelle

I worked with Michelle on an emotionally challenging case concerning family assets … My case was resolved quickly with the desired outcome. I highly recommend Michelle and would be concerned if she was on the opposing team.
