Notice of Reinstatement Application
The following attorneys have filed an application for reinstatement as an active member of the Oregon State Bar pursuant to Rule of Procedure (BR) 8.1:

Michelle Lynn Shaffer of Portland, #981018. Michelle Lynn Shaffer, an active member of the Washington State Bar, has been employed by the Cowlitz County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office since 2000. Because she was not practicing law in Oregon, she transferred her Oregon State Bar membership status to inactive in 2002. Shaffer has no immediate plans to return to the practice of law in Oregon.

The Rules of Procedure require the Board of Governors to conduct an investigation of BR 8.1 reinstatement applications to determine whether applicants possess the good moral character and general fitness to practice law and whether the resumption of the practice of law in this state by the applicants will not be detrimental to the administration of justice or the public interest. Any person with information relevant to these applications is asked to contact promptly the OSB Regulatory Services Division, P.O. Box 231935, Tigard, OR 97281; phone: (503) 620-0222, or toll-free in Oregon, (800) 452-8260), ext. 343.
