Professional • Experienced • Straightforward

With more than three decades of experience representing clients in criminal and personal injury cases, our firm is devoted to providing the best possible representation on behalf of those facing life’s most challenging moments.

If you or a loved one has been accused of a crime in Oregon, the best method for protecting your rights is hiring an experienced lawyer. Unfortunately, our great nation now prosecutes and imprisons a greater portion of its population, and for a longer time, than any other civilized country. When faced with the federal government’s or the state’s great power, you, the accused, need legal protection. If you are in that situation, call me – I have been carefully representing the accused in Oregon for more than 20 years.

The ultimate objective is to have the charges against you dropped or to achieve an acquittal during trial. As your lawyer, I will listen as you explain the circumstances of your situation, stand up for you against the authorities and prosecution, protect your rights and do everything within the law to see that your freedom is preserved.

I have represented plaintiffs in personal injury and wrongful death cases arising from auto collisions, toxic exposures, dangerous premises, defective products, and other wrongs. We can help to identify witnesses and preserve evidence of the event which caused your injury. We also help to facilitate communications with insurance carriers and prepare your case for a demand or lawsuit

While many injury cases in Oregon are subject to a two-year statute of limitation, shorter periods apply to certain cases, and in cases involving wrongful conduct by a governmental body, you must give notice of your intent to make a claim within 180 days. Often it is important to collect information and evidence early in a case. Don’t wait to contact a lawyer for a consultation.
