Portland Hunting Violations Attorneys
People facing accusations of violating federal wildlife laws are frequently surprised by the severity of the consequences they could face if convicted. Even in cases involving violations that some may view as relatively minor, such as shooting an elk out of season, the fines can reach into the tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the situation. In cases involving allegations of organized criminal enterprises, the consequences can be even more severe. There is a need to enlist a lawyer who understands the severity of these charges and will fight back.
At Raivio, Kohlmetz & Steen, P.C., we are tough and aggressive. We are also experienced. Our four lawyers have more than 70 years of combined experience. Even our "newest" lawyer has been defending the accused for more than a decade. We know our way around federal court. We know how to defend against crimes that other criminal defense firms rarely defend against, such as federal wildlife violations. We know how to fight for the best possible outcome.
Experienced Defense Against Poaching and All Other Wildlife Violations
We have successfully defended against federal hunting and wildlife offenses such as:
- Taking game animals out of season on public lands
- Illegal hunting or fishing on public lands
- Taking truffles and mushrooms from public lands
While these allegations can involve single acts, such as hunting bear illegally out of season, others involve crime rings. They involve organizations taking large amounts of sturgeon from lakes or gathering huge amounts of truffles. These cases can become extremely complex and involve both federal and state game and wildlife authorities and prosecutors. We have the experience to handle them and build successful defense strategies.
