At Michael D. O’Brien & Associates PC, our portland bankruptcy attorneys have more than two decades of experience helping Oregon families get a fresh start through Chapter 7 bankruptcy and Chapter 13 bankruptcies, stopping wage garnishment, preventing home foreclosures or car repossessions, and assisting in matters related to lien stripping and fair debt collection. Unlike other bankruptcy lawyers in Oregon, we understand that bankruptcy is not for everyone, which is why we also offer non-bankruptcy alternatives to help solve your financial problems.

Michael truly made a difference in the temperament of a negotiation, during these uncertain times Michael assisted me in a tight spot.

Billy M

I was able to get an appointment the next day when I first called. Every single person I spoke with went above & beyond to help me and made sure all of my questions were answered. I was not even charged for an appointment as Michael OBrien was able to assist with everything I needed during the consultation and was extremely polite & professional. I would highly recommend him and if ever needed, they will be my first & only call. Thank you again!

Zack Moore

Though I’m a new client, our first consultation over the phone felt that the lawyer knew his business and I felt that he was there to help me & without a doubt everyone else that is a client. I’d recommend this office to any & all!

Jay Hoak

I was given the direction step-by-step in order to pay off my debt without having worries. I was also given directions for the things I need to get in writing on paper. The professional advice was “get your paperwork trail” after I got off the phone. The name and number were saved to my contacts. Much appreciated, Thank you!


It’s been several days but we still come up short in describing our appreciation for what Mike accomplished on our behalf; not just in providing financial protection and legal relief, but restoration of a degree of faith that the justice system is at least sometimes blind and just. After spending fortunes on many of Portland’s ‘best’ attorneys it’s truly an honor to be represented by someone with Mike’s mastery of competence and experience. Life-saving for us. My wife and I still randomly and almost hourly remind each other ‘We won!’. Mike has our utmost gratitude.


I had the good fortune to have guidance from Michael O’Brien regarding a lawsuit filed against me. It was quite intimidating as I have never experienced anything like that before. The free video he provided as well as the free consultation with him answered my questions and educated me fully on the legal procedures, my rights, responsibilities and my options. I became empowered to defend myself and negotiated a settlement without going to Court. Michael treated me so kindly and professionally and did not capitalize on my situation. I can wholeheartedly recommend the services Michael provides so ethically and generously.
