I am a criminal defense attorney located in Southern Oregon. I started my own law office in 2015
after seven years as an attorney for Southern Oregon Public Defender in Jackson County.
As a public defender, I handled thousands of criminal defense cases. These included Murder, DUI, Disorderly Conduct, and everything in between. I am admitted to practice in state and federal court, and I have tried more than fifty criminal cases to jury verdict. 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 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 a criminal 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.
