Felonies and Misdemeanors

A felony conviction can take away your right to vote, own a firearm and subject you to long periods of incarceration. The right defense attorney is crucial.   It is critical that you contact an attorney early in the criminal process to protect and preserve all your rights.

Adam L. Dean has over 20 years’ experience representing clients in Oregon, SW Washington and Federal courts.   He represents clients in Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas and Columbia Counties, as well as Clark and Cowlitz Counties in Washington state.

It can be a horribly confusing and frightening event to be accused of a crime.  We are experienced in all aspects of major felony defense.  We understand how important this is to you and strive to protect your rights through the utmost care, attention to detail and strictest confidentiality. We will work with you side by side to provide you the best result for your unique situation.

We are experienced in handling all types of criminal proceedings in Oregon and Washington state, and in the U.S. District Court in Oregon and in the Western District of Washington including:

  • Violent crimes
  • Oregon Ballot Measure 11 Crimes
  • Rape/Sex Abuse
  • Assault I and II
  • Drug Charges
  • Child Pornography

A misdemeanor is a crime that exposes an individual to less than one year in jail. These may include DUII, shoplifting, prostitution/solicitation, strangulation and others. Like felonies, misdemeanor convictions can show up on background checks, affect your ability to be hired, and restrict your ability to travel internationally. Call us today to set up a free consult to discuss your pending misdemeanor charge.

We also handle Civil Forfeiture cases involving seizure by either the state/county and/or the federal government.

We will speak to you initially about your criminal case at no charge.  Please call my office today to set up a free initial consultation.
