I handle exclusively the defense of criminal cases, both before and after charges are filed and as your case proceeds through the criminal justice system in Oregon State and Federal Courts.

I limit the number of clients I represent at any one time so you have my full attention in fighting the charges against you. The legal system can be overwhelming and intimidating. You can count on me to explain the process to you and work closely with you to present the best possible defense to criminal charges.

My goal is to determine how you want to handle your case, to minimize the damage a criminal charge can have on your life, to provide you the information you need to make informed decisions, and then do everything I can to help you achieve those goals.
I am dedicated to defending the rights of people accused of criminal offenses at every stage of the proceedings, beginning with the initial accusation, police contact, or criminal charges. From the moment I am retained as your lawyer, my legal investigator and I begin preparing for your defense. To provide you the information you need to make informed decisions, and then do everything I can to help you achieve those goals.
