About Me

Christopher Missiaen

I am a criminal defense attorney located in Southern Oregon. I started my own law office in 2015 after working for seven years as an attorney for Southern Oregon Public Defender in Jackson County.

As a criminal defense attorney, I have handled thousands of criminal cases. I have represented clients on charges of Murder, DUI, Disorderly Conduct, and everything in-between. I have taken approximately 75 criminal cases to a jury trial. I have earned a reputation with my clients, the court, prosecutors, my colleagues, and law enforcement as a dedicated criminal defense attorney who is always willing to stand up for my clients.

Before working as a criminal defense attorney in Jackson County, I worked for two years as a personal injury attorney in Bend, Oregon. In addition to working as a criminal defense 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 earned my law degree from the University of Oregon School of Law in 2005. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in History from the University of California at Santa Cruz in 1995.

I am originally from Washington, D.C., and now live with my wife and daughters in Medford, Oregon.

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.
