Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

My former attorney, Michael R. Shinn OSB#732709, a soon to be disbarred attorney whom I spent 5 days in a court with in a formal Supreme Court of trial panel of three Judges at the Oregon State BAR's offices.

He was being tried for many multiple counts for disbarment for theft of client funds. 

Over 95 counts and more for theft of client funds and he is now up on the charges, multiple clients had their legal rights violated by this now suspended lawyer.

He was spending clients funds out his clients trust account, and this has been a public record investigation two and a half years running by the State of Oregon BAR.

This soon to be former attorney will soon be disbarred, and in the interests of public safety.

There is nothing worse then a lawyer who steals client funds. This all a matter of public record at the State of Oregon's BAR offices, so help me this is the truth.

Never hire an attorney unless you absolutely need one, and then run a back ground check through the State BAR office as need be to see if there have been prior complaints on his/her record.

Find another attorney if you find even one on the public record against him/her.

Do not even think about hiring this man if he is not disbarred.

Disbarred on 7/8/09

AUTHOR: Eric - (USA)

Mr. Shinn has been in fact disbarred as 7/8/09. The disbarment becomes permanent on 11/11/09, by the Supreme Court of Oregon.

He can appeal this ruling of his trial upto 11/10/09, but the evidence is overwhelmingly against him.

This should send a powerful message to corrupt attorneys, don't think this can't happen to you. Once in a great while a citizen can succeed in disbarring an attorney without having to hire one in the first place.
