Clackamas County and Portland Drug Defense Attorney
Drug crimes can range from a very minor charge to extremely serious charges. There is often a lot that an experienced criminal defense attorney can do to minimize the damage from drug charges. When charged with possession/delivery/manufacturing of a controlled substance, there is usually a search issue involved. Search issues are some of the most interesting and challenging areas of criminal defense. Jared Justice and his team pore through every small detail of your case, from the very first moments of the incident, allowing us to have a deep and thorough knowledge of any issues that may be critical in bringing your case to the most favorable outcome possible.
When an individual is charged with distributing or manufacturing a controlled substance, there is likely a heightened level of law enforcement involved. These law enforcement officers may have made mistakes regarding your case that could have a major impact on the court proceedings. You need a capable attorney who has the legal acumen and extensive experience required to spot issues with the search, the search warrant, and the procedure that may or may not have been followed properly in your case. The importance of hiring an attorney who is in your corner throughout your case cannot be overstated.
Many cities and counties also have what is commonly known as an “inter-agency task force.” This group of law enforcement officers teams up from different jurisdictions to apprehend people committing specific criminal acts. This is primarily seen in cases involving major drug busts, controlled sales of narcotics, prostitution/human trafficking rings, and organized theft rings. If you are charged with a crime that was a result of an organized law enforcement goal or a sting, you need to contact a criminal defense lawyer immediately.
Crimes involving Theft, Burglary, or Identity Theft often have a drug element that is the driving force behind them. The Law Office of Jared Justice has helped many clients get back on track while successfully fighting the charges that the defendant is accused of.
Some common situations are:
- Possession of a controlled substance;
- A controlled substance DUI;
- Delivery of a controlled substance, and;
- Manufacturing a controlled substance.
How are these fought?
Drug crimes can often be successfully fought pre-trial with the help of an experienced drug defense lawyer like Jared. There are many search issues that a drug defense attorney can raise in a motion to suppress for unlawful search and seizure, for example. We use every resource available to fight your case, from drafting motions to suppress, to using other methods to keep out evidence. Our firm uses experienced investigators (many who have a law enforcement background) to comb through every aspect of your case to ensure the best possible result.
Mitigation is an important aspect of every criminal case, but it is especially critical when it comes to drug cases. Prosecutors and judges will often respond favorably to proof that a client has been actively trying to overcome addiction and improve their life. Jared Justice can help guide you along the most direct route to improving the way a prosecutor or judge will view you.
