As a native Oregonian I truly understand and appreciate the area in which my clients live and work.
My practice is primarily comprised of representing parents or children in cases where the State removes a child from his or her parents care. In this area, an attorney must be able to work with parents, other attorneys as well as Department of Human Services caseworkers. I often state that my job in this area is half lawyering and half social work. In this area, I have been able to reach positive outcomes for the majority of my clients which include dismissal in the early stages of the case, a quick return home of the child if the State felt that a removal from the parents' care was necessary or fighting the strong arm of the State.
In addition to my work in juvenile law, I also practice in the areas of family law, criminal defense and adoptions.
Regardless of the reason why I represent you, I am dedicated to providing competent, compassionate, and zealous advocacy on your behalf.
Outside of the practice of law, I am a novice gardner, a prolific knitter and a proud dog owner.

Meghan Bishop is one of the best attorneys I have had the pleasure to work with, both as opposing counsel and when working together to achieve the same goals. She is knowledgeable about the law and has a strong courtroom presence. She is caring and compassionate for her clients. She truly believes in zealous advocacy while giving her clients the best advice toward positive case resolution.
