The right attorney can make all the difference.  When the jury comes back with a verdict it means likely you go to prison for at least 75 or 120 months or you walk out the door.  A mandatory 120 or 75 month sentence will be imposed if you are convicted of Manslaughter I or II.  The difference between Manslaughter I and II is 45 months.  The only element that is different is that in Manslaughter I the government must prove that the death occurred under circumstances manifesting extreme indifference to the value of human life.  That single element can mean the world to you if the case is not otherwise winnable for us. 

Our Portland Criminal Defense Attorney is aggressive and knows the law

Every case is different and the right attorney can make all the difference.  Do not let the prosecution intimidate you into a plea without pursuing every possible defense.  Even if an outright acquittal is not possible there are lesser included offenses that will be researched, investigated and argued.  The government has the burden of proof and you need a lawyer who will hold it to that task.  If your freedom is on the line do you want a lawyer who is looking to plead you out? You want a lawyer who is not afraid to go toe to toe with the government and who has a proven record of winning cases. You need a lawyer who will fight for your rights and take the government to task. Protect your rights and your life and contact the law office of John E. Gutbezahl immediately at 503.594.1919.
