Undersheriff Paul TImm  Reports arrest of ex-attorney for Identity Theft

Linn County Undersheriff Paul Timm reports that on November 14, 2019, detectives arrested Megan Marie Moeller, 39, a residence of Corvallis, in connection with a forgery investigation.

In 2016, Megan Moeller, who was then Megan Perry, was a licensed attorney and had an office in downtown Albany. Megan Moeller was hired by a client to provide representation in regards to a child custody issue. Detectives found that during that representation, Megan Moeller provided her client with documents “proving” that legal papers had been served on the other party. The investigation revealed that signatures on those documents had been forged and that the legal papers had not actually been served on the other party.

Megan Moeller was arrested and charged with three counts of Identity Theft.

In 2018, Megan Moeller submitted her resignation to the Oregon State Bar after facing multiple complaints from clients. At that time, Megan Moeller was disbarred from practicing law in Oregon.
