I started my own law firm in September 2015 after working for seven years as an attorney for Southern Oregon Public Defender in Jackson County. As a public defender, I handled thousands of cases from Murder to Disorderly Conduct and everything in between. I have earned a reputation with my clients, the court, prosecutors, my colleagues, and law enforcement as a dedicated attorney who is always willing to stand up for my clients.
Before joining Southern Oregon Public Defender, I worked for two years as a personal injury attorney for Dwyer Williams Potter in Bend, Oregon. In addition to working as an attorney, I have flipped burgers at McDonalds, operated ski lifts at Mt. Bachelor, sorted mail for the post office, and installed sprinkler systems and landscaping.
I am originally from Washington, DC; I live with my wife and daughters in Medford.
About my last name: it is pronounced "mĭ·shôn" or "mih-shawn." The name is Flemish, which means that it originates from Flanders – the Northern part of Belgium.
