Mike Arnold is an attorney in Eugene, Oregon. He grew up in the Midwest and moved to Oregon to attend law school. He tells stories for a living, delivering a narrative through facts to juries around the state. He also enjoys telling stories to his daughter, which all seem to end up with someone in the family actually being an alien or a robot. The jury stories, likewise, almost always seem to end up with a two-word verdict.
Mike gained notoriety as an attorney when he stood on the courthouse steps as Ammon Bundy's attorney and told the remaining occupiers of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge to "please stand down." In the aftermath of the standoff he was credited with assisting in negotiating a peaceful resolution for the remaining four protester holdouts.
Another of Mike's cases was featured on a CBS "48 Hours" episode entitled "Trail of Tears."
