Assault & Violent Crimes

Prosecutors in Oregon vigorously pursue convictions in violent crime cases. Most assault and violent crime charges are Measure 11 offenses, and a conviction can result in a harsh prison term with little or no chance of early release. If you face a violent crime charge, you need skilled and effective representation as soon as possible.

Gilroy Napoli Short Law Group aggressively defends people accused of all types of violent crimes, including:

  • Assault — All types of assault charges including first-degree, second-degree, third-degree and fourth-degree assault and assault with a deadly or dangerous weapon
  • Murder — Homicide, manslaughter and attempted murder
  • Vehicular homicide — Including manslaughter in the first degree, manslaughter in the second degree and criminally negligent homicide
  • Domestic violence — Including violation of restraining orders and representation in civil protection order hearings
  • Kidnapping

Defense of Assault Charges

There are several possible defenses to an assault charge, including self-defense, defense of others and mistaken identity. There is even a “choice of evils” defense, though it is rarely employed.

Our attorneys will undertake a comprehensive investigation into the events leading to your arrest, seeking to undermine the state’s case. Evidence such as video footage or witness statements can be interpreted in different ways, revealing a story that is quite different from the one the prosecutor tells. Gilroy Napoli Short Law Group will aggressively represent you at all stages of the legal process, seeking the best possible outcome for you.

We Will Fight for Your Rights and Freedom

There are many advantages to hiring a private defense lawyer rather than relying on an overworked public defender. Gilroy Napoli Short Law Group will fight for you every step of the way.

Contact us by calling 503-747-7198. In a free consultation, we can discuss possible defense strategies with you. We represent people in Portland, Salem, Beaverton, Hillsboro and elsewhere in Oregon.

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!
