Portland Oregon Criminal Defense Consultations
If you are under criminal investigation for a potential crime, or if you already have a pending case, contact our office. Schedule a consultation. We will be able to tell you whether or not we can assist. If law enforcement is attempting to communicate with you, or if the local prosecutor is attempting to communicate with you, you may want to consider invoking your right to remain silent. While awaiting a consult, you may want to also refrain from communicating with anyone else about the facts of the case. This includes in-person, telephone, and letter communications about the facts of the case, but in this modern area, it also includes faxes, emails, text messages, Facebook posts, Instagram posts, Messenger messages, and other forms of electronic communication.
Initial consultations are not intended– and cannot be expected– to result in a complete resolution of your case. They can however be very helpful to give you a more detailed overview of the process, and a confidential assessment of where you may stand with your criminal case. We can also explain some of your options– including, but not limited to: dismissals, diversions, plea bargains, Motions to Suppress, Motions to Dismiss, bench trials, jury trials, and acquittals.
