MICHAEL WISE & ASSOCIATES, P.C. - Michael T. Wise, Principal AttorneyMichael Wise has lived in Lake Oswego for 20 years, but he moved his law practice from downtown Portland to the heart of Lake Oswego just one year ago.

"It's a statewide practice with a small-town feel," said Wise. "It feels right to have a presence in Lake Oswego," a community he loves.

Michael Wise & Associates, P.C., is a boutique law firm that focuses primarily on general business representation, injury litigation, and providing professional representation to all its clients.

Wise created the firm in 1996 as a sole proprietorship after leaving the Kennedy Bowles law firm in Portland. He is licensed in Oregon and Washington.

"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 get to talk to me, not a legal assistant."

The firm has grown to include several attorneys practicing in areas of litigation, personal injury, wrongful death, professional negligence, construction law, business formation, insurance coverage disputes and simple and complex estate planning.

In addition, "There are other attorneys in our office suite," said Wise, "and my firm can refer people to others if they need something like divorce representation or other services."

Seventy percent of Wise's cases are in the Portland tri-county area and almost all come to him via word-of-mouth referrals.
