Know your options when facing misdemeanor charges

There are many laws and regulations in place in Oregon. These laws help to keep individuals safe and provide some sense of law and order within the state. These laws are complicated and are often not clearly propagated to the general community. Oregon residents may not even realize that they are doing something they aren't supposed to do. Therefore, it can be surprising when individuals are facing criminal charges. People may not even realize why they are facing charges or what can be done to fight them.

The attorneys at the Short Law Group, P.C. understand how surprising criminal charges can be in some cases. While individuals may not realize why they are facing specific charges, our attorneys have extensive knowledge of Oregon criminal codes. We can help to explain why a person's actions have resulted in criminal charges and how those charges can be combated. Just because a person has been accused of criminal behavior does not mean that individual is guilty of that behavior.

In fact, many times police and prosecutors have gotten the charges wrong. They make quick judgments about individuals and then issue charges not supported by the evidence.

Our attorneys can evaluate individuals' cases to ensure that they are not falsely accused. We can negotiate with prosecutors to make sure that unfounded charges are dropped or reduced. This can help avoid specific penalties for individuals who are facing a variety of charges.

Misdemeanor charges like low-level drug charges, traffic offenses and others can put a stain on an individual's reputation and criminal record. By dealing with the charges in an aggressive manner, people can avoid these penalties and the hassle they can create for the future.
