Drug Possession

Possession of a controlled substance such as cocaine, methamphetamine, ecstasy or heroin, is a serious crime in Oregon. Upon conviction, a jail sentence and criminal record is a real possibility. You may also lose your driving privileges without the possibility of obtaining a hardship license for 6 months, unless you can present compelling reasons to the court as to why that should not happen.

At Gilroy Napoli Short Law Group, with offices in Portland and Salem, we vigorously defend people charged with drug crimes. Our attorneys have more than 25 years of combined experience in Oregon courts, and we work hard to protect the rights and preserve the freedom of our clients.

Commercial Drug Offenses in Oregon

One of our major concerns will be to avoid a conviction for a “commercial drug offense.” For example, if you were arrested while in possession of $300 more in cash, packaging materials or a scale, and a certain quantity of a controlled substance, you could face a commercial drug offense that carries enhanced penalties.

Our lawyers will carefully analyze the state’s case looking for flaws that could lead to a positive outcome. Whenever possible, we make aggressive use of motions to suppress evidence that was illegally obtained. These and other actions could result in a dismissal of charges, an acceptable negotiated plea or not-guilty verdict.

Staying Out of Jail

Avoiding jail and conviction is a major goal of most of our clients who are charged with drug possession. Fortunately for people caught up in the criminal justice system, many counties in Oregon offer alternatives to conviction and jail. For example, if you are eligible for STOP Court in Multnomah County and you agree to your participation in an intensive drug treatment regimen, you can earn the possibility of having the charge against you dropped. We help our clients through this process all the time.

Certain people convicted of drug possession crimes may be eligible for an expungement. Our firm has successfully obtained expungements for numerous clients, including people convicted of felony marijuana crimes.

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!
