Immediate Investigations in Drug Crimes Defense

We go to work for you to present the most compelling defense on your behalf. At your initial consultation we will gather your version of the facts to begin preparing your case. Your lawyer will determine the proper course of action to take, pursue all necessary evidence, including witness statements, police reports, and will contact experts as needed to assist in bolstering your defense.

Search and Seizure and Your 4th Amendment Rights

Because many drug crime convictions depend on evidence seized from the home, car, or your person, it is important to ensure that any search or seizure was properly conducted. Your 4th Amendment rights prevent the government from using evidence illegally obtained against you in court. Whether or not a search warrant was used in your case, we will investigate the facts of your case to determine whether any illegal action was taken by law enforcement officials and seek to suppress evidence where possible.

We are experienced in drug crime defense in cases involving:

  • Drug possession
  • Distribution
  • Manufacture
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin possession
  • Prescription drug possession
  • Tampering with drug records (prescription issues)

Oregon's Drug Court Program

If a drug court program is available and you qualify, we will discuss your interest in such an option. Ultimately, the drug court program may result in the complete dismissal of your charges. Even if you have a previous record of drug charges, we may be able to get you into a drug court program which would result in the dismissal of your case. We always consider your best alternative, whether through plea bargain, drug court, or trial. Let us protect your rights.
