Oregon Complex Litigation Attorney

Mike Arnold practices statewide at what passes as “high profile” criminal defense in the little state of Oregon, having tackled some of Oregon’s most notorious cases. He also works on “bet the company” complex commercial litigation cases.

Mike Arnold in Hood River Circuit Court – 2015

In one murder case outside of Portland, Oregon in Hood River Circuit Court, he was featured in two episodes of CBS 48 Hours.

In another murder case in Lane County, Oregon, involving a former UFC fighter accused of a road rage homicide for shooting an unarmed man in the face, he wrote a book called Finishing Machine. He recommends reading it to get a taste for what passes as justice in some Oregon courts. He pulls no punches in giving readers and clients an inside look of what happens in a high-profile case where local politics, egos, and personalities often take priority over truth and justice.

Mike’s practice philosophy is simple: know more about the facts and law than the other lawyer, investigators, experts, and court. Hard work wins cases. Mike does not just ferry offers from the other side to his clients. He prepares every case for settlement as if it were going to trial.

“Mike Arnold is an aggressive attorney that doesn’t mess around.  I would recommend him to anyone.  Thanks for helping me.  I don’t think I have ever been so scared or felt so helpless.  You and your wife are good people, and I’m thankful I know you guys.”

False Domestic Violence Allegation

In the early hours of the morning, law professors wonder whether anything we do makes the world a better place.

Today, I feel pretty sure that the answer is yes. That’s because, on January 28, I awoke to a televised image of Ammon Bundy’s lawyer, Mike Arnold of Eugene, Oregon, reading a statement urging the other Malheur protesters to stand down. Arnold is a former student of mine. I couldn’t be prouder.
