Attorney Representation in Portland, Oregon for over 15 years

Domestic violence is one of the most politically charged areas of criminal law. Fifteen years ago prosecutors would drop cases at the request of the victim. Not anymore. The pendulum has swung completely the other way. Prosecutors will often file weak cases with the expectation that a defendant will take a deferred sentencing option. While deferred sentencing might be appropriate in some cases please be advised that you have to give up your right to trial and plead guilty to take advantage of deferred sentencing.

If you've been charged with a computer crime, contact John E Gutbezahl now.

Prosecutors will often violate the deferred sentencing on the most minor violation of the agreement. These cases can often be won at trial and prosecutors know that. Do not give up your rights easily. Before even considering a plea we will investigate to either win the case at trial or convince the prosecution to dismiss the case. 

The government can prosecute you even if the alleged victim does not want the case to proceed. Furthermore, a domestic violence conviction, even a misdemeanor can deprive you of your constitutional right to bear arms.

Our Portland Criminal Attorney is here to stand up for you and your case

Protect your 2nd Amendment rights and go with a lawyer who is willing to take on the domestic violence cases. The government has investigators and experts so you need them too but most of all you need a lawyer who is not afraid of the courtroom and will never sell you out.  Not all cases are destined for trial but if you have John E. Gutbezahl on your side you will know that you have a fighter in your corner. 

Being prepared for trial can force the government into favorable plea negotiations or even outright dismissal. The Law Office of John E. Gutbezahl will assemble the right team of investigators, and forensic experts to mount an attack on the prosecution’s case.

Preparation for criminal charges in Portland is key to a strong defense

The best defense often times is a good offense and it is important to not wait until the government is ready with its case.  We will identify, locate and subpoena witnesses who will help our case and provide an attack on the state’s forensic evidence. Also we will investigate the government’s witnesses to determine bias, motive or outright dishonesty.
