Well-Regarded by Oregon Courts and Fellow Lawyers
We stay informed on frequent changes in the law that other criminal defense attorneys may overlook. Our sharp courtroom and trial skills are critically important to successfully navigating your charges.
While many lawyers will be willing to take your case, the outcome may come down to the experience your lawyer has with a specific charge, in a specific courthouse, with a specific prosecutor’s office. We have developed relationships with prosecutors and court staff all over the state of Oregon. The trust and confidence that they place in our office can be pivotal to the outcome of a case. When we speak, the people who hold your fate in their hands are almost always willing to listen.
Even if your goal is to resolve your case with a plea agreement or DUII diversion, an effective and trusted trial attorney can obtain the best possible resolution. Early communication between our office and the prosecuting attorney, preferably before formal charges are even filed, can help reach that resolution quickly. At the earliest stages of a criminal investigation, we deploy a team of specialists, such as former law enforcement officers and former state crime lab analysts, because we understand that the best defense is often an aggressive offense.
