Law for the People is a new kind of law firm that helps low-income people represent themselves in legal matters. We believe that, with our guidance, most clients can present their cases without the need for expensive attorney fees. Our current emphasis is on family law, but we hope to expand into additional areas of the law soon.

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!
