My law firm—Neal Weingart, Attorney at Law, LLC—provides criminal defense for individuals in a number of different communities in the state of Oregon, particularly in the Portland metropolitan area. As a Portland criminal lawyer who has extensive courtroom experience, I am well-equipped to provide my clients with high-quality legal representation. I have handled hundreds of criminal defense cases in court, and I have also taken cases to trial more than 100 times. In addition to Portland, here are some of the many areas that my firm serves:
When I take on clients' cases, I fully investigate the details surrounding their arrests and fully prepare their cases for aggressive defense in the courtroom. I handle a broad range of case types, such as those involving drug crimes, theft crimes, domestic violence and violent crimes. My firm even takes on some of the most serious criminal allegations, such as those for murder, manslaughter and sex crimes such as rape. I fully understand that not every person who is accused of a crime is actually guilty of that offense.
One common type of charge is the DUI or DUII charge. This is the charge that is given for the crime of driving under the influence of intoxicants. Were you accused of engaging in drunk driving? What about driving under the influence of drugs? Whatever types of DUI or DUII charges you are facing, my firm can provide you with assistance.
The Portland metropolitan area—which stretches into the states of both Oregon and Washington—has a population of more than 2.2 million residents.
