Over $55 million in verdicts and settlements in 17 years.
Portland Bicycle Attorney Michael Colbach
I represent injured bicyclists in my Oregon personal injury law practice. As a former bike racer myself, and currently a bicycle commuter, the bicycle accident cases that I handle are particularly meaningful to me.
Enjoy The Ride. If you do get injured in a car accident, call me as soon as you are able so that you can understand all your options.
The frequently asked questions for cyclists are similar to pedestrians essentially, call me as soon as you are able. Then you can focus on your recovery.
Bicycle Attorney Referral
My goal is to give bicyclists everywhere the best legal representation possible.
I network with many top USA bike attorneys who are also dedicated long time cyclists themselves throughout the USA such as Seattle bicycle accident attorney Bob Anderton of Washington Bike Law, and lot more.
If you are looking for an experienced bicycle attorney in any other state, please contact me by phone or email me as I may be able to help find you an experienced and effective bicycle attorney at no cost to you.
I Support Oregon Bicycling
After being on hiatus for two years due to the Pandemic, proud to be the BicycleAttorney.com partner sponsoring the bicycle racing series at Portland International Raceway, Race Monday Nights, where cyclists of all levels can ride on the car free track. PIR is host to many great bicycle events, motorcycle road racing, motorcycle MX, and cyclocross. This picture is from 2021 where The Cyclocross Crusade was going on at the Heron Lakes part of the Park, while the Oregon Motorcycle Road Racing Association (OMRRA) was hosting one of their season races. Of course, some members of the BicycleAttorney.com cycling team have also held their motorcycle racing card with OMRRA through the years, two wheels one love as Oregon's pro motorcycle racer Andy DiBrino says!
I am the main cash sponsor of the Bicycleattorney.com cycling team.
You may notice on the old BicycleAttorney.com Team Jersey the logos of Bike n' Hike - Giant and Hop Works who were also sponsors of this great team. The owner and operator of Bike n' Hike is Kevin Chudy. He is a personal friend of mine and an active Cat III and Masters racer. Kevin sponsored me when I used to race bikes. Hop Works are also a supporter of Portland cycling, contributing sponsor of the Portland Cup US Gran Prix of Cyclocross event while it was held in Portland. Kevin retired a bit after this photo and trip. The Presto Velo BicycleAttorney.com Cycling Team has new sponsors, West End Bikes where I purchased my new dream Colnago bicycle during the Pandemic.
Proud To Be A Continued Contributing Sponsor
I support Oregon Bicycle Racing Assocation (OBRA) OBRA.org
Proud to be a contributing partner of the Monday Nights Bike Race Series at Portland International Raceway - racing starts mid April - check out their schedule and pics from last year.
I supported the Alpenrose Velodrome. Sorry to say that the Alpenrose Velodrome is now a thing of the past with new owners of the dairy. Hopefully Oregon will have a new Velodrome very soon. In past years also supported the Alpenrose Velodrome Challenge which brought Olympians and some of the best track riders to Portland to race on the velodrome.
Proud to have been a contributing sponsor the Stanley Portland Cup USGP of Cyclocross in 2008 and 2009. That was a great year, as the USA Cycling also held the Cyclocross Nationals in Bend, Oregon and one of the BicycleAttorney.com riders podiumed! We were so proud of him!
Proud to have been a contributing sponsor of the USA Cycling Cyclo-cross National Championships held in Bend, Oregon, December 9 - 13, 2009, and again in Bend December 9 - 12, 2010.
Proud to have contributed my 2015 Colnago bicycle for PDX Worlds Raffle, trying to raise money to bring a UCI Road Bicycle Race to Oregon, we really have it all to host a premiere world cycling event!
The bicycle team of BicycleAttorney.com are always doing good things with bikes, bicycles for good causes, like raising money for the American Lung Association with Reach the Beach Oregon in 2018, but also many more years!
The second year of the Pandemic putting a damper on everything, Hugh built three drop bar bikes for the Casa Girasoles Cycling Team and shipped them to Perú in late September (raising money in part with some wheels I donated for bike parts), which you can see in this video (out on one of the first rides since lockdown in over a year). I then bought five more brand new bikes which Hugh selected from Westend Bikes which are being shipped to Perú to help get these cyclists on better bicycles to help them on their cycling goals. And, in November 2022, I bought 13 more bikes and sent members of the BicycleAttorney.com to Peru to volunteer and work with the boys in the orphanage on the first ever Gravel Camp.
I supported former pro cyclist Evan Elken (visit Evan's Blog and seasonal race results on my Bicycle Attorney web site. Evan had quite a few great cycling accomplishments in his career. One of his accomplishments, 7th USCF Criterium Championships - August 19, 2007. Evan was named Amateur of the year in 2004 by Velonews after an exciting year of races and placing 8th in the 2004 Olympic selection trials. Evan has had strong showings in Portland's Twilight Criterium race in downtown Portland and finished 5th in Pro 1/2 category August 2008. Evan has now turned his attention to coaching and training cyclists in the Portland metro area, where many great cyclists live and ride bikes.
