Michael Rose relishes the demands of complex civil litigation and jury trials. Through more than a decade of litigation, Michael has represented individuals and corporate entities such as Chevy’s, Emcor and Costco and local Oregon municipalities and agencies in jury trails, state and federal appeals- all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Michael currently represents clients in medical and professional liability cases, complex injury litigation, and insurance coverage disputes. He is also a current arbitrator and mediator on the Oregon State Bar panel for fee disputes.
Michael is licensed to practice in the State of Oregon, the Oregon federal district courts, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. He earned his law degree at Northwestern School of Law, Lewis & Clark College (1998), a master’s degree in economics from Texas A&M University (1993) and a dual bachelor degree in economics and environmental studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara (1992). He was honored with a Dean’s Fellowship at Northwestern College of Law and a Research Fellowship at Texas A&M where he focused on applied statistics. He received his private pilot’s license in 1994 and has logged hundreds of hours in small aircraft.
Outside the office, Michael regularly volunteers at the Oregon Food Bank, raises two children, runs marathons, restores vintage espresso machines and straight razors, coaches youth sports, and obsesses about finding the perfect pizza dough for the wood oven he built in his backyard.
