Lake Oswego attorney Michael Wise serves local legal needs
After leaving the Kennedy Bowles law firm in Portland, Michael Wise set out in 1996 as a sole proprietor to form Michael Wise & Associates, P.C., a boutique law firm focusing primarily on general business representation and injury litigation.
Wise has been a resident of Lake Oswego for 20 years, and he recently moved his business from downtown Portland into the heart of Lake Oswego. He is licensed in Oregon and Washington.
"It's a statewide practice with a small-town feel," said Wise. "It feels right to have a presence in Lake Oswego."
Wise has set himself apart by taking on a limited number of cases and focusing on lasting client relationships. Many of Wise's clients come to him via word-of-mouth referrals.
Since its creation, the firm has grown to include several attorneys practicing in areas of personal injury, wrongful death, professional negligence, products liability and construction law. The firm has gained a reputation among insurance companies for taking cases to trial if a reasonable settlement offer is not made.
"Sixty percent of our work is on behalf of victims of medical malpractice, product liability, personal injury and wrongful death," said Wise. "We're a fair but aggressive firm. We're very hands-on. You talk to me, not a legal assistant."
