Misdemeanor and Major Felony Criminal Defense in Portland
At this time, I accept misdemeanor and major felony criminal defense cases, including defense for those accused of sex offenses.
While I consider accepting civil cases outside of the Portland area, I only accept criminal defense cases in the greater Portland, Oregon vicinity, including the counties of Multnomah, Clackamas, Columbia, Washington County and Clark County, Washington state.
Please contact Jennie Clark and Clark Law & Associates at (503) 238-1010 for a free 10-minute consultation to determine if we are a good fit to work together.
For those who freely admit guilt and want to plead guilty, I offer reasonable rates to negotiate a guilty plea, assuming there is sufficient evidence that a jury could find you guilty. My rates are higher if there are motions to suppress, which may clear you of all charges, even if you are guilty.
Unfortunately, those who are innocent pay the most in attorney's fees to go to trial. If you are innocent and a victim of an arrest without probable cause or excessive use of force, it is important that your Portland criminal defense attorney preserve your state law claims against the police within 180 days.
At Clark Law & Associates, we also handle civil police misconduct cases. If you call for a consultation, I can give you an estimate of the expected legal fees. I generally give the choice of a flat fee or request for a retainer hourly rates to be billed against the retainer.
It is a good idea to consult with legal counsel if you believe that you are being investigated for a crime. You have a constitutional right to remain silent and the right to counsel before deciding whether to forgo your right to remain silent.
