Eugene City Council Votes 8-0 to Build World Class Covered SkatePark in 2013!

 

It’s official! The Washington-Jefferson SkatePark is being built this summer in a public-private partnership, grand opening in September or October 2013. I’ve been fortunate to serve as chair of the Rotary skatepark subcommittee for this project. There is a great article on the front page of today’s Register-Guard about it, available on-line.

From a Practicing Attorney
Michelle is a first-rate attorney with very high integrity. I recently referred an existing client to Michelle because of a conflict. She handled the matter skillfully, efficiently, and got a great outcome for my client. She kept me appropriately updated on the status of the matter, and when the matter was complete she handed my very happy client back to me without a hitch. My client went out of his way to send me an email thanking me for referring the matter to Michelle. I would highly recommend Michelle for any legal matters, and practitioners can feel confident that any client matters you refer to her will be handled with zeal and integrity.

Wow... Just WOW!
Michelle Blackwell is a badass attorney and a beautiful single mom as well! She is an incredible woman. I originally hired Michelle to help fight some unfair rules being proposed by a regulatory agency in Oregon. Not only did she put a stop to the unfair rule proposals, she also helped me get legislation on the Oregon House Floor that helps me and thousands of working women in the state of Oregon! This was a daunting task, but Michelle Blackwood orchestrated it with grace, tact, and when needed fighting Irish brawn! Michelle, thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing what you did. You sacrificed your time your resources for us and helped mentor us at the same time! You created a pathway for our amazing field that will live on in the future of Oregon for generations.

If I need an attorney, she is my first call
Michelle is an incredible force! She is insightful, perceptive and vocal. Smart. She is able to dial down. eliminate the noise and bring the core issue to the fore front to be dealt with. And she does it all with such finesse and grace that it seems effortless. I am glad she was on our team! If I need an attorney, she will be my first call. Petite, cute, and a smart, tough cookie. I appreciate her brain power, her work on behalf of women in Oregon. They may not ever have an idea of the impact that her efforts have had on their ability to stay employed. Michelle represented a group of estheticians to get House Bill 2642, the Advanced Esthetician Certification scope of practice to define estheticians work with non-ablative lasers.

Great Attorney and Outcome
Michelle was indeed excellent. She was well prepared for our meeting and had read the documents I sent carefully. She was very honest -- candidly laying out the facts and my options, and giving me really good advice about negotiating and navigating this kind of case. She really knows her stuff and is detail-oriented and wise. The advice she gave me was great; I might have made some big mistakes without her, and we ended up prevailing. Her manner was serious but not intimidating -- in fact, she sent me a warm note of thanks after the case was done. I'll use her again if I need help, and I'll definitely refer her.

Strong recommendation for Michelle
I worked with Michelle on an emotionally challenging case concerning family assets. I strongly feel Michelle is the most effective and efficient lawyer I have ever worked with. Michelle is deeply knowledgable, professional , and fierce. My case was resolved quickly with the desired outcome. I highly recommend Michelle and would be concerned if she was in the opposing team.

Litigation Attorney | Dec 27
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I had the opportunity to work with Ms. Blackwell on a very difficult business litigation matter. She was very focused on the issues. Opposing counsel was difficult at times but she remained professional. Her preparation for depositions and conduct of depositions was excellent. At trial, she did a wonderful job of cross-examination. She was instrumental in a successful outcome. I enjoyed working with her. I would not hesitate to associate her again in a matter."
