FEDERAL CHARGES About Firm Our Cases

Oregon Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers Explain Federal Cases

Are you an Oregon resident who has been accused of a federal crime? Federal charges are very different than state charges, although being convicted of either a federal offense or a violation of Oregon law could result in incarceration and could leave you with a permanent criminal record that affects your future.

Unfortunately, federal charges are typically even more serious than state-level charges. Responding to federal charges can also be much more difficult, especially as not every defense attorney has the ability or authority to represent you in federal court.

You need to make sure you have a committed, knowledgeable and experienced advocate representing you who understands the federal penal code and who can provide you with the comprehensive advocacy that you need and deserve as you fight for your future. LV Criminal Defense is the firm you are looking for.

We will work closely with you to evaluate the evidence against you, to help you during an investigation, and to assist with the negotiation of a plea agreement or with fighting in court for a not guilty verdict. To find out more about how our firm can help you, give us a call today.

How a Federal Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help Oregon Residents

LV Criminal Defense will work closely with you to understand the specific nature of the evidence against you and to help you respond appropriately given your particular circumstances. Every case is different, so the goal should be to talk with your attorney about the details of your case so you can craft the best legal strategy in light of the facts of your case.

Factors that will affect the approach you take include the strength of the evidence against you, what crimes you’ve been charged with, the likelihood you will prevail in court, and the nature of the plea agreement that our skilled negotiators could negotiate for you. In every circumstance, we will work with you to take the approach most likely to help you avoid consequences or minimize the penalties that you could face.

Our firm can begin representing your interests from the first moment that you become a target of a criminal investigation. We can help you to respond to questioning by federal authorities, to investigate the evidence against you, to question witnesses, and to poke holes in the case being built against you.

We can also advise you when not to answer questions, when you’re in danger of being tricked into saying something incriminating or falling into a perjury trap, and what your options are for keeping evidence from being used against you if it violates your constitutional rights.

We can also represent you either in court or during plea negotiations to maximize the chances of acquittal by successfully introducing doubt or raising affirmative defenses or to help you get the most minimal penalties possible under the circumstances.

It’s always important to remember that you can avoid a guilty verdict simply by making the jury question whether the prosecutor has proved every single element of the crime you have been accused of beyond a reasonable doubt. Our firm is good at making the jury question the evidence so that seed of doubt can be planted and acquittal hopefully will end up being the outcome of your case.
