Portland Criminal Trial Attorney
You may be completely innocent of any wrongdoing, but when the flashing lights of a police car show up in your rearview mirror, or the authorities come knocking at your door, there is inevitably a surge of adrenaline, fear and anxiety. If you are arrested and charged with a crime, those feelings of fear may quickly turn to confusion as you attempt to navigate the state or federal criminal justice system. By working with a skilled attorney, you can rest easily knowing you have someone looking out for you.

It is important to protect yourself after any arrest. Don’t divulge any information to the authorities. The Founding Fathers gave you the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendments for a reason. Use them. Demand your right to speak with a lawyer.
