Located in the heart of downtown Lake Oswego at 1st & A St., Michael Wise & Associates, P.C. is a boutique law firm that focuses primarily on general business representation, injury litigation, and the professional and zealous representation of all of its clients.
Formed in 1996 by Michael Wise as a sole proprietor after his work with the Kennedy Bowles law firm in Portland, Michael Wise & Associates 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.
Michael and the staff at Wise & Associates were life-savers for me and my family. They helped me settle my lawsuit against a large insurance company when no other attorneys seemed to want the case.
The entire crew at Wise & Associates were professional, courteous, and tenacious in their representation of my family regarding the wrongful death of my husband. I would recommend them to anyone in need.
I cannot imagine another lawyer or firm representing me as well as Michael and his firm. Without them doing excellent legal work, my family would not have recovered anything because of the uninsured, intoxicated driver who hit me.
Michael Wise is my go to guy for many things. When I have trouble or a problem on a case, or a conflict, or need someone to try a case, Michael is the guy that I turn to. Michael has always been there to help me and my clients. I highly recommend Michael as a skilled and compassionate trial lawyer.
I have worked closely with Michael Wise and his staff for many years as co-counsel on a variety of legal matters, ranging from construction defect cases to vigorously contested employment disputes. In addition to being one of the preeminent true trial lawyers in the Pacific Northwest, Michael is creative, attentive and pragmatic in his approach to potential settlement when and if that opportunity presents itself. I highly recommend Michael for those seeking an aggressive courtroom advocate who possesses the savvy to also connect with jurors, the bench and his opponents as well.
I had the pleasure of working with Michael on a number of complex personal injury cases. Michael has a great deal of compassion for the people associated with his firm. He deeply desires success on behalf of his clients. This passion shines through in the diligent work product that his office generates. Michael has no reservation in taking cases to trial or arbitration; yet, he is honest in his case evaluations. In cases that we worked together, this combination of attributes always led to the best possible outcome for our clients. Michael is well respected by both plaintiff and defense lawyers. I am sure that this respect will only continue to grow. I know the admiration that I and my former clients have for Michael is well deserved.
