About me

Travis Prestwich primarily works in the wrongful death and personal injury areas. He focuses on all types wrongful death and personal injury cases, including automobile accidents, medical malpractice, premises liability and product liability cases.


He recognizes that these cases require experience and personal attention to bring about the best and most just outcome for his clients. Mr. Prestwich engages in alternative dispute resolution methods like mediation, settlement conferences and arbitration where possible to reduce the stress and expense for his clients. He recently resolved two wrongful death claims, one in mediation and the other through arbitration, and obtained very favorable results for his clients. However, when these methods are not possible, he is an effective trial attorney in both jury and bench trials. 


Mr. Prestwich is fluent in speaking, reading and writing Spanish, having served a two-year church mission in the Dominican Republic and later obtaining a Spanish minor in college.


Professionally, Mr. Prestwich currently serves as a member of the Oregon State Bar's Board of Governors.  He previously was a Board Member of the Marion County Bar Association, serving as its President in 2010.  He also volunteers in various capacities at Willamette University's College of Law.
