Our Criminal Defense Team focuses on criminal matters in Washington County, Oregon. We also represent clients in criminal matters in other counties and municipal courts throughout Oregon.

We provide aggressive criminal defense services for a variety of charges, including DUI, theft, domestic violence, and serious Measure 11 felony crimes.

Our criminal attorneys excel at taking cases to trial and defending our clients' constitutional rights, having obtained many "Not Guilty" verdicts over many years. We also engage in hard-nosed plea negotiations with the district attorney's office when the circumstances call for it.

We are frequently contacted by individuals who have not yet been charged with crimes but are under investigation. It can be critical to have legal representation in this type of situation. You have a right to an attorney - assert that right!

While all circuit courts in Oregon must follow the Oregon Revised Statutes, the criminal justice process can vary greatly from county to county. It is thus extremely important that a criminal defense lawyer be very familiar with the particular circuit court ("venue") in which the attorney practices. Our criminal defense team has carefully studied all of the judges and prosecutors that handle criminal defense cases in Washington County, Oregon.

If you have been charged with a crime in Oregon, we are here to help you find a solution.
