Law enforcement officials will be constructing their case before you are even arrested, our attorneys will take prompt action to contest any evidence presented against you.

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!
