Portland Heroin Possession Defense Lawyers
Throughout Oregon, particularly in Portland, the recent string of heroin overdose deaths has led to a crackdown on heroin crimes. Not only are police charging more people with these crimes, the penalties are getting more severe. A conviction for a heroin offense, even a first-time conviction for simple possession, could lead to long-term negative consequences. Clients charged with delivery or distribution of heroin can even be held liable for the death of another person who consumed the drug at a later time and place. Increasingly, clients facing heroin related charges are being prosecuted or threatened with prosecution in federal court where the penalties can be even more severe.
At Raivio, Kohlmetz & Steen, P.C., our attorneys have decades of experience defending people against heroin related charges, such as:
- Drug possession
- Possession with intent
- Drug distribution
- Drug manufacture
