At The Law Office of Steven J. Sherlag, I put my heart and soul into defending my clients' rights in both criminal and civil litigation. When you choose me to advocate on your behalf, you are getting an experienced trial attorney who puts himself on the line fighting for you, believing in you and producing for you.
Throughout my more than 20 years of legal experience, I have earned the respect of peers, educational institutions and clients alike. I was featured on Dateline, the Today Show, on the Oregon Judicial Orientation video and was recently recognized as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers Association. If you are looking for an attorney who cares about you and has the skill to get results, contact me today.
A Dynamic Trial Lawyer and Strategic Problem Solver
As a former public defender and senior attorney in a major crimes unit, I have extensive trial and negotiation experience with complicated criminal matters in state and federal courts. My vigorous criminal defense extends from drunk driving cases to complex domestic violence, homicide, sex crimes and child pornography matters.
Is your loved one currently in custody? If so, I urge you to call me immediately so I can protect your loved one's rights. DO NOT discuss the case over the jail phone. Jail phone conversations are:
- NOT confidential
- Monitored by law enforcement
- Used during trial against your loved one
I am also known throughout the legal community as a sophisticated and savvy constitutional law advocate. My reputation is based on my substantial expertise with police procedure. I have provided guidance in the attorney training division, and have also led by example in court. As a dedicated criminal defense attorney, I:
- Take the role of courtroom advocate seriously
- Zealously fight to protect my clients' rights at every stage of their cases
- Understand the complex legal system inside out
With nearly 20 years of experience in Oregon, I have also developed a reputation for providing honest, aggressive criminal defense representation. I follow a strict philosophy: I hold myself to high standards and strive to live up to your expectations. I strive to get every case dismissed, but I also understand that is not always possible. I do my best to minimize clients' consequences and pursue justice through aggressive, effective litigation and trial strategies.
Representing People Is My Calling
At the Law Office of Steven J. Sherlag, I take a holistic approach to each case. I believe that my clients should play significant roles on their defense teams, so I provide the necessary education to ensure they make informed decisions. I listen to your concerns and goals and then tailor my representation to your needs.
I understand that your criminal case involves sensitive information and details. I build close relationships with my clients to help ease the anxiety associated with trial. My legal team is dedicated to maintaining a high standard of service, and to living up to your expectations.
