Having the right defense lawyer on your side is critical. A criminal accusation is an overwhelming event in one’s life. It is crucial that one asserts all applicable rights and that one be treated fairly and with dignity throughout the process. I vigorously advocate on your behalf. I have more than 20 years’ experience representing clients who have been accused of crimes from serious felony offenses such as rape, assault, sexual abuse and murder to misdemeanor charges such as driving under the influence and domestic violence. I represent clients in Oregon in the counties of Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington, Hood River and Columbia. In Washington State, I represent clients in Clark and Cowlitz Counties.
I also represent individuals in restraining orders, Family Abuse Protection Act (FAPA) cases and stalking protective order cases.
