Protect your record from misdemeanor charges

Misdemeanor charges may not seem like a big deal at first but when people sit down and really look at the consequences they face they may soon see a different reality. Misdemeanor charges can result in up to a year in jail and large fines. They also run the possibility of interfering with a person's employment, school opportunities, housing options and more.

They can also create a criminal record which can follow people for years in the future. In particular, young people me face additional penalties or consequences because of misdemeanor charges as they mature into adults. Therefore, it is important for everyone to create a specific criminal defense strategy to combat misdemeanor charges.

Even when facing misdemeanor charges Oregon residents have legal rights. These rights include the right to expect certain conduct from police officers during the arrest and during any subsequent investigation of the incident. Protecting these rights is essential in avoiding punishments for misdemeanor charges.

Our law firm can help explain and protect these rights. We can conduct a thorough investigation of the person's arrest and the surrounding events to ensure that police followed all necessary rules.

Furthermore, there are always two sides to any story, and the police may use the evidence they gather to tell one side. We can help present an accused person's side of the story in court. Through the evidence we collect in the investigation we can be your voice and advocate in court. We understand the rules and procedures that must be followed for people to prove their innocence and avoid a criminal record.
