Drug Crimes Defense Lawyer

Drug Charges

In Oregon, it is a serious offense to possess, manufacture or deliver cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, methamphetamine or variations on these drugs. If you have been charged with a drug crime like this you should contact The LeSueur Law Firm for expert drug crimes defense advice. We know that just because you have been charged with a drug crime you do not necessarily have a drug problem. We assume all of are clients are good people and will work hard to show the goodness in you.

As a premier drug crimes defense law firm, we know whether your drug charge will be treated seriously by the prosecutor or whether there is a way to get more lenient treatment.  Rehab is a better option than jail and although it will not always be an option in all cases, we have a track record of getting our clients into treatment rather than having them serve jail time. Criminal defense Attorney Henry LeSueur knows the respected treatment providers in Oregon and can help you start that process so that he can present the best possible case for treatment over jail.

Many times police find drugs through an illegal search. Criminal Defense Attorney Henry LeSueur has been successful filing motions to suppress evidence in drug cases and getting the prosecutor to dismiss the charges as a result. In criminal defense, an aggressive lawyer is always the best defense lawyer because the police and prosecutors are aggressive. At the LeSueur Law Firm, we know your reputation and record are very important to you and we will fight hard to keep them clean.

In Oregon, it is a serious offense to possess, manufacture or deliver any amount of a controlled substance, which can include substances such as cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, methamphetamine or variations on these drugs. Because Oregon legalized possession and manufacture of marijuana in certain quantities, criminal charges for marijuana are less common but still can occur if you are underage or you have clearly exceeded the permissible quantity limits. I will not delve into the specific quantities of marijuana that adults are allowed to possess here, but exceeding those limits can still be a serious criminal charge.

The consequences for drug crimes vary widely based on the amount of the substance, your proximity to a school and whether there is evidence that you were not just using the substance, but also selling it. In some cases, prosecutors simply want to see a defendant get drug treatment, but other times they throw the book at you. Fortunately, the constitution protects you from unreasonable searches and seizures and this can be a great defense to these charges. We have been very successful bringing such motions in cases where the police did not respect the privacy rights of our client. We will advocate to protect your constitutional rights if you are charged with a drug crime and fight the prosecution every step of the way.
