Immediate action on your behalf is extremely important when facing sex crime allegations. In some cases, we have intervened in a matter quickly enough to keep charges from ever being filed publicly. There is no question that the sooner you hire a skilled criminal defense attorney, the sooner you can begin the process of clearing your name.

Most sexual assault charges in Oregon are Measure 11 offenses, meaning they generally carry a minimum of 75-100 months in prison. Additionally, a third conviction for a felony sexual offense in Oregon can carry a sentence of life without parole.

In addition to a prison sentence, those convicted of a sex crime will be required to register as a sex offender for life. The database is not just used for law enforcement, but is searchable by any person nationwide. Also, any person who is registered will not be permitted to live within certain distances of schools or day care facilities.

Our criminal defense attorneys promise to treat every client with respect and dignity. We promise to work tirelessly to expose weaknesses in the government’s case and to build your case through extensive research, investigation, and preparation. Even if your case cannot ultimately be dismissed, we have the ability to fight to reduce the charges or penalties, helping you avoid unnecessary convictions and jail time.
