Oregon’s Top Rated Domestic Violence Defense Lawyers

Frequently allegations of domestic violence are factual and valid, and occasionally they’re not. Neighbors can often overreact or misinterpret noises coming from inside a home. At times spouses can overreact during an argument. Specifically, if the domestic violence allegations are false, you need a solid lawyer that can help you avoid criminal charges or a conviction that is not justified.

Domestic violence charges are serious, and should not be taken lightly. You could end up with a felony permanently on your record and could possibly even lose your Oregon gun rights for life.

Our defense law firm has decades of experience in fighting domestic violence cases and we will use that experience to help you avoid a conviction or help to get your sentence reduced.

The criminal law attorneys at Gilroy Napoli Short focus on the best defense solutions in domestic violence cases and our attorneys are available to meet with you at our offices in Bend, Salem, Medford and Portland, Oregon.

Hiring the right lawyer. Keep in mind the partners at our law firm are former Washington County prosecutors and are extremely experienced with the ins and outs of Oregon Domestic Violence Laws.

If retained, our lawyers can meet with you at any of our locations, the county jail, or at the following county court houses: Deschutes, Marion, Jefferson, Jackson, Klamath, Tillamook, Washington County, Multnomah and Clackamas County.

The Consequences of Domestic Violence in Oregon

Oregon views domestic violence as a serious offense, so the consequences for these convictions are equally severe. These convictions include the following but are not limited to:

  • Permanent felony on your record
  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Loss of Oregon gun rights
  • A ruined reputation in the community
  • You might not pass a background check for a job or housing
  • Restraining orders prohibiting you from seeing your family

Have you been Charged With Domestic Violence?

The court system in Oregon has a strong devotion to protect homes and families and this is why domestic violence laws are so rigid. On occasion these strict laws result with the spouses, police or prosecutors going out of their way to deliver unnecessarily harsh charges against you.

If you are facing difficult charges it does not mean that your situation is hopeless. We urge you to contact us immediately for a free consultation and to discuss your case with us.

I had the misfortune of being wrongfully accused of a crime. Like many other people, I looked to other's experiences along with online reviews for direction on who to have represent me. I quickly recognized how highly respected and experienced Mr. Jeff Napoli and his team were as they have earned a solid reputation throughout the Portland metro area. Mr. Napoli was always prompt in responding and communicating with me. Mr. Napoli went above and beyond in repeatedly contacting the district attorney's office on my behalf and equally kept me apprised of what was transpiring. Throughout this ordeal, I was also represented by Ms. Jenna Richards, a member of Mr. Napoli's team. My family and I were highly impressed. Both Jeff and Jenna conducted a thorough counter-investigation which clearly proved I was innocent of the charges against me. This was one of the most stressful periods in my life and I could not thank them enough for all of the help, attention and respect they showed me throughout this entire year-long ordeal. I highly recommend Gilroy, Napoli and Short law firm to anyone seeking top tier representation. Thank you Jeff, Jenna and their entire team!
