They don't make them like this "The Greatest"
I was injured on a charity motorcycle ride. I was severely injured. I underwent multiple surgeries. I was close to death many times. I was on life support. I lived in the hospital and a rehab facility for awhile. I could barely move. I had multiple surgeries. After the first few surgeries I had multiple boxes of multiple reams of paper from the medical records of this event. I tried to handle my claim myself because the total limit amounts were far less then my damages. The insurance companies were trying to get over on me. It took weeks to summon enough energy to call and deal with the insurance people and the claim process. After getting the run around from the insurance companies I had thoroughly researched the top lawyers in Oregon. I contacted most of these super lawyers and lawyers with prestigious accolades who are considered the best. For the most part they treated my situation as just another case. I came across Travis Mayor who is also a Super Lawyer with many prestigious accolades as well. I called the office of Travis Mayor and spoke with his kind receptionist. She informed me that Travis was on vacation. A few minute later I received a call from Travis in Hawaii! He cares that much about his clients that he called me from Hawaii while he was with his family. I told him my situation and out of kindness and compassion he said this total limit amount of money would in no way be fair to you. So Travis offered me an EXTREMELY low flat fee out of the kindness of his own heart. He truly cared about me and my situation. After all the pain it was a blessing to come across a man who truly cared. Once Travis took over I was able to focus on recovering. Travis was extremely easy to contact and in most cases got back to me before I could get back to him. He kept me updated and presented everything to me in a direct and clear manner. He outlined the choices I could make and he let me have full control over the decisions of the case while guiding me throughout the process effortlessly. Travis got the limit amounts from both insurance companies. He negotiated my bills down extremely low. And he also searched every possible outlet for further money. Travis went above and beyond and he did it all like a champion with no sweat. Travis is the best lawyer I could have gotten not just in Oregon but anywhere in the globe. I do not think Travis could have done anything better. Travis performed at 1000% and went above and beyond for me and not for money but out of care for my situation. They truly do not make them like this. Thank you Travis. If anyone would like to speak to me as a reference to hear my story please contact Travis and His Team for my contact info. What Travis did for me is more than words. Travis Mayor deserves a 10/10 on this site.

Thanks, Travis
Travis helped me with my personal injury case and I was very impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. He was always available to listen and answer my questions. He was great to work with! I would recommend Travis to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer.

BEST LAWYER YOULL HAVE
I consider myself very lucky to have been referred to Travis when I was in my first accident last November. He is a professional, caring, understanding, and most of all a trust worthy lawyer. He kept me informed throughout the entire process, was always available if I had a question, and fought hard for what I deserved. He is the only lawyer I will refer friends and family to and I am so glad I had him on my side! If you find yourself in an unfortunate accident, Travis is your guy! I don't handle high anxiety situations well but with him on my side it took a lot of the pressure off and I am forever thankful!

Travis Mayor, great lawyer
Travis represented me In a personal injury and punitive damage claim in an incident where I was hit by a drunk driver. The case lasted roughly two years and was mentally and emotionally trying. That being said, Travis was helpful throughout and made sure that every move made in the case was broken down and that I understood clearly what was going on. It was my first experience with any legal matter and Travis couldn't have been better. I would highly recommend him to anyone I know.

Property damage claim
Travis Mayor represented me in a property damage claim that took over two years for trial. Legal matters can be unsettling and trying, particularly when one is ignorant in matters of law and given the duration of my particular case. Needless to say, Travis was extremely professional and dedicated, throughout mediation, pursuit of settlement and eventually trial. I truly appreciated his help and would highly recommend his expertise to anyone needing a good lawyer. Thanks again, Travis.

Professional, helpful, knowledgeable
Travis took my case over in the middle of it. He stepped right in and got more results for me in a much faster time, then the original team did in the first 18 mos, I really appreciate all of his expertise and assistance. He kept in contact through emails on a regular basis and let me know what was going on. Any questions I had, he was more than happy to break down the answers for me. Thank you for everything! If you need a personal injury lawyer, Travis is your guy!!

Personal Injury Settlement
Travis took over from another attorney who had failed to file paperwork on time. He came up with a strategy to solve the problem. He got me a significantly larger settlement than the other driver's insurance company had offered me. Don

I would recommend Travis to anyone!
Travis was great! He fought for me and got a great settlement, including getting my medical bills paid. I even ended up with a new car! Thanks Travis!

No bad lawyer jokes here!
Travis just won my case. Many attorneys will not take on the small money cases because it isn't worth it for them. Rightly so, your attorney should actually make more than your barista when he or she fights for your interests and has to put in the same amount of hours as if it were a "big money" case. Yet Travis is willing to help even when he may not take away as much financially because he is a lawyer for the right reasons: he genuinely wants to help his clients. He is an exceptional advocate, generous, eloquent and witty, and professional to the Nth degree. He is the guy you want on your side. I would rehire him in a heartbeat and will send any (unfortunate) friends or family needing a Personal Injury attorney.

Excellent
Travis is a stand up guy. He's honest and dependable, and handled my case with due diligence and professionalism. I had no clue how to navigate the system when I brought my case to Travis, and he made sure to walk me through every step along the way. If you're in need of a good lawyer, give Travis a call, you won't regret it!

Travis Mayor is simply the best.
I was in my first car accident last November. I had no clue how complicated this was going to be. From the insurance/medical authorizations and reports to the vehicle rental, estimates and repair process I was overwhelmed. I was also in a lot of pain during this time. Travis took over so I could focus on healing. The daily phone calls and letters from insurance companies stopped because Travis just handled it all. In the end Travis negotiated to perfection and got me a very appropriate settlement. I highly recommend Travis Mayor and I will refer him to family and friends.

Professional and helpful in bike vs auto
Travis was a pleasure to work with. He always provided me with all my options in a clear and concise way, which helped me to make some important decisions. He seemed truly concerned about the course of my injuries and treatments. He was organized and very professional in communication with me and the other parties involved. We successfully settled the case and I would recommend him with out hesitation.

Outstanding legal representation -
Travis really hit a home run with my case, I couldn't be anymore satisfied with the outcome. My case was not your average everyday cut and dry case. But with Travis's hard work and dedication my case was proven and the policy limit was awarded in our favor. He was prepared for anything and everything the insurance company decided to throw our way.

Organized and Professional
Travis was awesome! I hadn't ever intended to get an attorney but when I realized time was running out on my claim he jumped in and took my case. We didn't win as much as we hoped but we did win which was what mattered. I'd definitely work with Travis again!
Posted by Brandi | November 7, 2011
Travis possesses great skill and competency and used it to fight for my case!
I was referred to Travis by a close friend of mine who was familiar with his great work ethic. I was a bit apprehensive given the complicated and delicate nature of my case, but he handled it with compassion and vehemence. Travis skillfully negotiated with the insurance company who was trying to low-ball me, and we ended up with a settlement that was much more than I expected, or was to be expected in a case such as this. I fully recommend Travis; not only is he an awesome lawyer, but he's a super cool person as well!
