Practice Areas

Matt handles all types of civil litigation disputes including contract disputes, elder abuse, personal injury, business and partnership disputes, and landlord – tenant disputes representing landlords.

  • Contract Disputes
    Matt represents a variety of clients in contract dispute matters including contracts for services, land sale contracts, and construction contracts.  If you have entered into a contract and need to know your rights or if you believe someone has breached a contract, please contact Matt.  Matt has represented clients both in the prosecution of contracts and in defense of claims for breach of contract.
  • Elder Abuse
    Elder Abuse has become a prominent area of litigation practice over the last 10 years.  With the passage of elder abuse laws (ORS 124.100 et seq.) the possible imposition of treble damages and an award of reasonable attorney fees is meant to deter both physical and financial elder abuse.  Matt has handled several elder abuse cases and continues to actively pursue the rights of the elderly to be fairly treated in business and financial matters.
  • Personal Injury
    Have you been injured? Did someone else cause those injuries? If you answered yes to both those questions, you may have a claim against that other party or their insurance carrier. Please contact me immediately. Your rights to recovery may be severely affected by the passage of time. If you want to know your legal rights to recovery, please do not hesitate to call Matt Mohill. A lawyer is your best bet in maximizing your recovery.
  • Landlord / Tenant Disputes
    Matt has represented both tenants and landlords in disputes about payment of rent, uninhabitable residence, and breaches of contract.   Matt primarily represents landlords in actions against or by their tenants.
  • FAPA Restraining Orders and Stalking Orders
    Restraining Orders and Stalking Orders are often the first go to for victims of family Abuse or stranger abuse.  The restraining order process allows a temporary restraining order to issue ex parte; that is without any testimony from alleged aggressor.  These restraining orders need to either be prosecuted or defended.  Matt has handled both sides of these situations and understands the legalities of obtaining and or defending these stressful situations.   There are slight differences between Stalking Orders and restraining orders.  Matt is prepared to advise you of the correct course of action to avoid unnecessary confrontations.

Matt handles both child support and spousal support modifications.  These situations usually arise after one party is either no longer able to pay, there has been a change in one party’s income or the parties have agreed to a change.  Please contact Matt if you have questions about your child or spousal support obligation.

Matt defends a wide variety of misdemeanor criminal actions including Driving Under the Influence (DUII), Possession of Controlled Substances (PCS), Delivery of a Controlled Substance (DCS), Trespass, Endangering the welfare of a minor and many others.  Matt can also help you expunge any of your previous criminal convictions.

  •  DUII.  Matt has handled cases for those who get their first DUII to those who have gotten three or more DUIIs.   There are complicated scenarios for each case and understanding the constitutional rights that each person has in their situation is critical to the defense of the action.  ORS 813 is the DUII and Diversion Statute that determines the rights of those charged.
  • PCS and DCS cases are primarily fact based cases.  Matt is prepared to defend your actions and the actions of others when charged.

A new area of practice for Matt is mediation.  As a civil litigator, Matt has become accustom to the length of time it takes for a case to go to trial.  The costs to the client become large and time consumption is difficult on both attorney and client.  Matt has served as a court-appointed arbitrator in Deschutes County for the last 7 years.  Those experiences will aid him and the parties in reaching resolution. Feel free to email Matt with questions regarding his rates or qualifications.
