Bicycle Law - Oregon

We are cyclists. We are attorneys. We are Bicycle Law. And we are deeply committed to obtaining justice for injured cyclists. Founded in 2000 by Olympian, national champion, and former pro racer Bob Mionske, Bicycle Law is the first bicycle law practice ever to exclusively represent cyclists. We get cycling. We get cyclists. We get you. If you’ve been injured in a bicycle crash, Bicycle Law is here to help you.

Bridging the gap between cyclists and cars

Oregon. The highest percentage of bicycle commuters in the country. Old logging roads leading to days-long adventures. High desert and coastal mountains providing immensely varied terrain. Portland. A commitment to active transportation that includes the first ever bridge built solely for cyclists, pedestrians, and transit. Oregon provides great promise to cyclists. The promise is a work in progress, though. Conflict persists on the road. Drivers, either distracted, rushing, or both, strike cyclists all too often.

If you have a legal issue – an Oregon bicycle crash, road use question, or advocacy issue, contact us at 866-VELOLAW (866-835-6529) or info@bicyclelaw.com.

Our Oregon-based resource is Bicycle Law founder Bob Mionske’s own firm, The Law Offices of Bob Mionske.
