Colton M. Theer graduated from Willamette College of Law in 2017. He received his undergraduate degree from Portland State University in 2012 where he studied history and political science. Colton was admitted to the Oregon State Bar in 2018. Prior to and during law school Mr. Theer worked for various criminal and family law offices, eventually becoming certified by the Oregon Supreme Court to practice law under the supervision of a practicing attorney. During his last year of law school, Mr. Theer won his first criminal trials working as a law clerk for a small public defenders’ office. Since then, Mr. Theer has only grown in his passion for trial work and aggressively defending the interests of his clients. Mr. Theer’s practice areas include criminal defense, ranging from high level felonies to misdemeanors and family law. Mr. Theer is a proud member of the Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers Association.
While Mr. Theer enjoys and takes great pride in each and every case he takes on, his true passion is in defending those accused of domestic violence. Domestic violence is never acceptable, and our justice system takes domestic violence cases very seriously; unfortunately, the justice system, as well as society take such cases so seriously that they tend to forget that defendants are people who often need help. Whether someone has been falsely accused of committing domestic violence, or simply made the worst mistake of their lives, they are sure to feel lost, need help, and most of all need a voice. Regardless, domestic violence allegations are sure to be among, if not the most, challenging moments in a person's life. Mr. Theer is passionate about helping people achieve the best possible end result to that time.
When he is not in the office, Mr. Theer loves to participate in outside adventures that keep him active. While he misses surfing the waves of Southern California, Mr. Theer has found home among the trees and rivers of Oregon, where he enjoys camping, hiking, and swimming with his two dogs and his amazing wife.
