ABOUT US

Michael L. Quillin, JD

Executive Director and Attorney

Mike graduated from the University of Oregon law school in 2008 with a focus on domestic violence and family law. After graduating, he clerked for the Honorable Kip Leonard at Lane County Juvenile Court. After clerking for two years, Mike accepted a position at the Survivors Justice Center at Lane County Legal Aid & Advocacy Center, where he represented domestic violence survivors in restraining order and family law cases. In the fall of 2012, the University of Oregon hired Mike to establish a Domestic Violence Clinic within the law school. As the supervising attorney for the clinic, he taught law students how to effectively represent their clients.

Law for the People represents the next chapter in Mike's professional life. Since the beginning of his legal career, he has dreamed of starting a nonprofit legal services organization to serve low-income clients. With his background in law and his teaching experience, Mike is well-qualified to help clients represent themselves in legal proceedings without spending a lot of money on attorney fees. Reach out to us and let us help you help yourself!

 

TESTIMONIAL FROM A FORMER CLIENT

"Mr. Quillin was willing and more than able to advise me during a very difficult situation in my life. He is very knowledgeable of the law and legal processes but speaks in layman's terms, so he is easy to understand. Mr. Quillin is a man of his word and integrity. During our interactions, I felt as if Mr. Quillin truly cared about my best interests. He does everything in his power to make sure that his clients are well-informed and able to have confidence in their case."
