Biography

Michael Stevens has a background in insurance defense representing individuals to large corporations in a wide variety of cases from personal injury to wrongful death and construction defects. He handled cases with values of as much as $4 million, and drafted many successful motions for summary judgment. An Oregon native, he graduated from Oregon State University with his bachelor’s degree and earned his juris doctorate at Willamette University College of Law in Salem in 2009. At Willamette he was an editor and writer for Willamette Law Online and the Web & Publication Editor for the Willamette Sports Law Journal. He has two daughters and lives in Hillsboro.

Most of his practice consists of personal injuries (auto accidents, dog bites), employment law (final paychecks, discrimination), and business law (LLC formation, registered agent). He also is not afraid to take on the big insurance companies when needed.

Q. See below
A: Holiday pay is not a legally controlled item, it is only a company policy, so you would have to look at your company's policies. That said, while you may not have control over holidays, you did have control as to when to put in your notice, and Memorial Day has been scheduled on that date for literally decades.
