Thorough Knowledge of the Criminal Law System

While this may seem like a no-brainer to many people, it is important that our criminal defense lawyers are trained professionals who know the Oregon law system inside and out. They have studied and trained to understand every aspect of criminal law and court procedures, and it is their job to defend you, determining if there are any loopholes or inconsistencies in the system that can work in your favor.


Impeccable Negotiation Skills

Criminal defense attorneys have had many years of negotiating cases and will utilize creative ideas to sentences that the defendant may not even know exists. They will advise you from the beginning of the case, what steps to take to put you in the best possible position for a plea negotiation, and will work to get you the best possible results. 


Psychological Support

This is not to say that criminal defense lawyers have training in psychology, but attorneys can provide a lot of emotional support to their clients. A defendant who is representing themselves may feel that it is incredibly difficult to not only navigate the Oregon justice system on their own, but may be emotionally suffering from the overwhelming obstacles ahead of them. Without training or knowledge of how to defend themselves, they may crumble from the weight of defending themselves. When you have a criminal defense attorney standing in your corner that can offer insight and perspective on what is taking place, you will likely find the reality checks to be essential and helpful.
