Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers
Our attorneys combine experience, dedication and commitment to protect those charged with criminal offenses in and around the Portland Oregon area, including Washington, Clackamas and Multnomah Counties. We also represent clients charged with crimes, violations and infractions in local Municipal Courts, including Beaverton, Lake Oswego and Oregon City Courts.
Facing Criminal Charges? You Need Information
Facing criminal charges can be a scary experience. One of the things clients fear most is uncertainty. Our lawyers can be with you through every stage of the process, including contacts with police and prosecutors, arrest, court appearances and trial. Weâ€™ll explain whatâ€™s happening, what your options are, and what will happen next. Court procedures and rules shouldnâ€™t be secrets. Our clients will be fully informed of what they are facing, so good news or bad, you will know whatâ€™s happening and be able to make informed decisions.
An Experienced Attorney Can Make All The Difference
Our attorneys have many years of combined experience in Criminal Law. Weâ€™ve represented thousands of people in Oregon Criminal Courts. Our Oregon criminal law team defends clients charged with all Oregon felony and misdemeanor crimes including:
- Drunk Driving / DUII
- Domestic Violence / Assault
- Measure 11 cases
- White Collar Crimes
- Shoplifting / Theft / Identification Theft
- Traffic Crimes / Violations / Infractions â€“ reckless driving, hit and run, driving while suspended and revoked
- Drug Charges
A criminal conviction far in your past can appear in background checks today, resulting in job loss, failure to secure a teaching position, loss of professional license or security clearance. Call for and if you qualify for an expungement, we can quote you a flat fee for this service.
A Special Word About Domestic Violence Charges
We understand that when representing a client charged with domestic violence, particular care and skill may be required. The arrest, the â€śno contactâ€ť requirement and the delay in final disposition, can greatly impact your family. So weâ€™ll address the no contact orders and coordinate with family members to reach positive outcomes.
If a legal separation, dissolution, or restraining order case occurs simultaneously with the criminal charges, our firm has attorneys who focus their practice on Domestic relations. So we can answer your questions and make sure the criminal charges donâ€™t adversely impact your custody rights or property rights.

Free 15 Minute Phone Interview
Harris VelĂˇzquez Gibbens offers a free 15 minute interview to see if one of our attorneys can meet your legal needs. This interview includes you providing a brief outline of your legal matter, and a discussion of our legal philosophy and how we would approach your case. It also includes a summary of our fees. It does not include an in depth consultation or giving of legal advice regarding your particular case. For that, you must schedule a legal consultation, for which there is a charge. A legal interview DOES NOT create an attorney client relationship. It is for background information only so that you can determine if you would like to retain our services.
