Call today for a free consultation to see what an experienced, aggressive lawyer can do for you.
We focus on defending people accused and charged with crimes. Most of our cases involve very serious Ballot Measure 11 offenses. We also excel at defending people charged with traffic offenses, driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII), sex crimes, drug crimes, assaults, kidnapping, burglary, robbery, and more.
Criminal charges can entail very serious consequences including jail or prison, fines, forfeiture of money and property, inability to possess firearms, registration as a sex offender, and even deportation.
If you or someone you know is being investigated or has been charged with a crime we can tell you what to look out for and help you avoid the pitfalls.
Divorce & Custody
Divorce and custody disputes carry serious consequences that can include loss of custody, less parenting time with your children, and higher support payments to your ex spouse.
It’s important to have an aggressive attorney on your side to explain your options, help you choose the right one, and work hard to achieve your goals.
Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
If you’ve been in a car accident or suffer from another personal injury you may be entitled to assistance in paying for medical bills as well as lost wages and damages for pain and suffering.
There are timelines for demanding compensation and filing lawsuits, however, so it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
Restraining orders have serious consequences. They limit your ability to contact another person and can also prohibit your from possessing firearms and affect your ability to win custody of your children.
Under Oregon law, however, you only have a limited amount of time to challenge a restraining order after you have been served. Consequently, it is important to discuss your options with an attorney as soon as possible.
Appeal and Post-Conviction
If you’ve lost a case before a trial court or received inadequate assistance of trial counsel, the law may allow you to appeal the trial court ruling or seek post-conviction relief.
But the law limits the time for you to file an appeal and seek post-conviction relief. It’s important to contact a lawyer and discuss your options as soon as possible.

Why is it important to contact an attorney right away?
In some cases, a good lawyer will represent your side of the case to the police or the prosecutor, even before a charge is filed. In other cases, it is best to remain silent. In either event, you will not know what your options are unless you talk to a lawyer right away.
