About Us:

At The Law Office of Mike Arnold, we’re more than just a team of Oregon lawyers. We’re a legal fortress that attempts to stand against falsehood and oppression for the clients we serve. We delve into the most complex and high-conflict cases involving property disputes, business disagreements, parental alienation, unjust violence (government-sanctioned or personal assaults), and intimidating government overreach via the criminal and juvenile courts/DHS.

• Draft legal documents, conduct legal research, and prepare for court appearances, trials, and depositions

• Collaborate with our team to develop effective case strategies

• Show initiative and work independently with an eye toward growth and future leadership opportunities


•J.D. from an accredited law school and licensed to practice in Oregon

• Minimum 1-2 years of experience in a legal role; courtroom experience is strongly preferred, either as a lawyer trying cases or as a judicial clerk

• Demonstrated ability to work independently and a desire for career growth

• Strategic minded with a history of creative thinking and problem solving

• Evidence of discipline, such as mastery of a hobby, a sport, etc.

• Turning exposure to hardship into insights about the human condition that are transferable to brutal cross-examination skills and strategic mindset

• A history of hard work, particularly in manual labor, is a plus

Why Join The Firm:

We believe in fighting tirelessly for justice and for those who have been falsely accused. If you’re passionate about making a tangible impact, we’d love to meet you. Our high-volume, diverse caseload and rich learning environment will provide ample opportunities for hands-on experience. We offer comprehensive training on our detailed protocols and procedures to ensure you’re well-equipped to excel.

As a firm with a proven track record of scaling in the areas of criminal defense, family law, protective orders, and high-conflict civil litigation, we’re primed for growth. There’s room for career advancement, including the potential for leadership roles.

Team Collaboration and Resources:

As an associate with the Law Office of Mike Arnold, you’ll gain access to an abundance of resources essential for your development as a trial lawyer and learn the business of the practice of law from marketing and lead generation to negotiation tactics to closing argument to a jury. This includes detailed checklists, meticulously crafted protocols, and – most importantly – the collective wisdom of our experienced team members.

Our firm is a treasure trove of war stories (data) and court recordings (more data), enabling you to learn from past cases and trial strategies. It’s akin to having a virtual library of litigation at your fingertips. This wealth of information serves as both a teaching tool and a reference point as you navigate through your cases.  The client successes that you see on our website are hard won but not rocket science.  It’s trainable and you too may one day train a team of lawyers as we expand our unique model.

In addition to these resources, we promote a collaborative environment where co-counseling trials is encouraged. It’s an opportunity to observe seasoned attorneys in action and gain firsthand insight into the dynamics of a courtroom. Moreover, the extent of your involvement in a case is determined by the specific needs of the client and the nature of the case at hand. This means that you will get to take the lead on your own trials.

In essence, we provide you with the tools, resources, and opportunities to nurture your trial skills. Our commitment is to ensure you not only grow as an attorney but also thrive as a trial lawyer, equipped to face any challenge in your path.


We offer competitive compensation, benefits, and opportunities for professional growth depending on your experience and the value proposition it offers to clients (translated into the billable rate). Our compensation package includes a monthly salary plus bonuses based on profitability. Our most highly valued associate candidates would be independent entrepreneurs passionate about justice and resolving conflict through collaboration or force, who work well on their own but appreciate a stable case flow, clients that can pay, and a supportive team to watch out for one another like family.

Work-Life Balance:

We’re passionate about our work, but we also understand the importance of work-life balance. We offer flexible working conditions to accommodate the different needs and commitments of our team members.

To apply, please send your resume and a cover letter detailing your interest in our firm to managing attorney Frank Segarra at “contact [at] mike arnold [dot] com”, your relevant experience, and how you see yourself contributing to and growing with our mission.
