About Us - Professional Details
Micah’s practice focuses on representing individuals and families who have suffered serious injury or loss in personal injury, product liability, sports accidents, and serious automobile or bicycle accidents. His passion lies in helping those who need it most – individuals. Micah is most passionate about issues involving injustices where there is an apparent imbalance of power. Whether the imbalance involves a large corporation that produces a defective or dangerous product at the expense of the individuals who are killed or injured as a result, an employer abusing an employee, or a government entity that infringes on individual’s civil rights. Micah strives to attain justice for individuals who have been seriously injured or treated unfairly by these more powerful entities.
Micah lives in Bend, Oregon, with his wife Jenny and their two sons. You can almost always find the active family skiing, biking, hiking, or exploring the outdoors.
