Prescription Drug Offenses
My Portland law firm provides aggressive defense for clients charged with prescription drug offenses related to the illegal use, prescription or sale of Percocet, Flexeril, OxyContin, Vicodin, codeine and other drugs.
Defense Against Oregon Prescription Drug Offenses
As a lawyer who has handled several Oregon prescription drug offenses, I possess sophisticated understanding of how these cases are handled within the state and federal systems. After almost two decades of experience as a former public defender and at Steven J. Sherlag, P.C., I have a reputation for zealous advocacy in pursuing justice for my clients.
Portland Prescribed Drug Attorney
I understand the emotional difficulties and the severity of the consequences you are facing when you have been charged with altering or forging prescriptions, or selling drugs bought overseas, including the harm to your reputation in your community and the possibility of losing custody of your children or your employment.
To build a strong case on your behalf, I will evaluate your case from every angle to identify potential defense strategies. I am known for my knowledge of police and court procedures and, in some cases, have been able to get incriminating evidence suppressed. My goal is complete dismissal of the charges against you. When that outcome is not possible, I have often been able to minimize the consequences of conviction. For example, alternative sentencing options are usually available for a first offense.
Is your loved one currently in custody for a prescription drug offense? 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
