Swiftly combat drug charges in Oregon

When police learn that people in Oregon are involved in using or selling drugs, they act very quickly. Whether they start investigation, undercover work, obtain a warrant or take some other action, the police immediately begin to create a case against an individual suspected of drug law violations. Police do not take allegations of drug use or drug sales lightly.

On the other hand, individuals accused of drug charges, often don't have the same preparation time that police have. Police may have spent weeks or even months preparing to bring charges against an individual. Once these are charges have been brought, the individual charged may have very little time to react to the charges. Upon arrest, individuals may be in front of the judge within a few hours or days.

Individuals, therefore, need to catch up to the work the police have done. They need to react quickly in order to protect their freedom and constitutional rights. Often, an attorney is necessary to help make this happen. Individuals don't often know all of their criminal defense options and it can be difficult to learn quickly enough to defend against drug charges on their own.

An attorney, like those at our law firm, can help individuals understand their legal rights when facing drug charges. Attorneys can act quickly to protect these rights and to ensure that police follow all applicable laws before, during and after an arrest.

By acting quickly, our attorneys can gather evidence that police have acted inappropriately in the case. Or our attorneys can gather evidence that helps to prove a person's innocence. Additionally, our attorneys can negotiate with prosecutors to reduce the charges and ultimately the penalties. With the help of an attorney, individuals can get the best chance at combating drug charges in Oregon.
