(Salem, OR) — Governor Kitzhaber today announced the appointment of Michael A. Greenlick to fill the vacancy on the Multnomah County Circuit Court created by the appointment of Judge Michael McShane to the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon.
“Michael Greenlick is a seasoned trial attorney who brings knowledge of the law, intellectual curiosity and an impeccable reputation to the Multnomah County Circuit Court,” said Governor Kitzhaber. “Equally important is that he will bring a humble perspective and deep respect for how our system of justice works for the people of our state.”
Mr. Greenlick graduated from Pomona College with a Bachelors of Arts in Economics and received his Doctor of Jurisprudence from Lewis & Clark Law School. He has spent the majority of his legal career as a criminal defense lawyer, both as a public defender and an attorney in private practice. He has also represented clients in personal injury and federal civil rights matters.
In addition to maintaining a robust practice, Mr. Greenlick has dedicated much of his time to serving the community. He has spent thousands of hours working with local high school students as a coach of “We The People” Constitution Teams and he has presented at many trainings on criminal law matters including serving as an Adjunct Professor at Lewis & Clark Law School. He also served for many years on the Citizen’s Budget Advisory Committee of the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office, and he mentors law students and young lawyers.
