After an arrest, the first thing you need to do is contact a Portland criminal defense attorney to represent you and defend you from a criminal conviction. The process of finding the right lawyer can be extremely difficult, however, if you do not know what makes one criminal defense attorney better for your case than any other lawyer. At the offices of Neal Weingart, Attorney at Law, you can find a lawyer who is capable of providing the defense and representation that you need in order to have your criminal case dismissed. I have defended countless clients in court and have successfully defended them from the penalties of a wrongful or harsh conviction.
One way in which my firm stands apart is that I have extensive courtroom experience. Many defense lawyers claim that they understand the strategies of the prosecution, but it is my personal goal to be far better prepared than the opponent in a defense case. Having defended hundreds of clients at trial, I have an understanding of what the prosecution needs to press charges and can prepare accordingly so that your charges or reduced or entirely dismissed.
I also firmly believe that clients should be involved in their defense case. Many lawyers take on a case and fail to explain what is being done to fight the client's charges, leaving the client helpless and uncertain about their case. At my firm, I keep in constant communication with my clients, educating them about their options and helping them to make decisions instead of making the decisions for them. At the end of each conversation with a client, I want to be able to ask them if they have any further questions and have their answer be "No."
Along with providing aggressive defense for the criminally accused, I also strive to be active in the legal community. I am a member of the legislative committee for the Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, where we lobby and educate the legislature regarding the criminal laws they are about to pass, as well as the ones that we do not want passed. The OCDLA serves to serve the community and help promote a strong sense of community between Oregon defense attorneys and the people they represent. As a member, I promote these values, as well.
