Mark Cogan: Courtroom Tested, Client Approved
Criminal charges are serious matters. Accusations that qualify as Ballot Measure 11 charges are not only serious, they carry mandatory prison sentences. Our law firm, located in Portland, Oregon, represents clients with a variety of criminal defense needs, including clearing a criminal record through expungement, representation in grand jury investigations and criminal defense in state and federal courts.
Our criminal defense lawyer, Mark Cogan, received an AV – Preeminent 5.0 out of 5.0 Rating* through Martindale-Hubbell, the highest ranking available to attorneys. He is an Oregon SuperLawyer® (only 5% of attorneys selected) and Avvo’s ‘Client Choice Award 2012’ recipient. His primary area of practice is criminal law, which he has practiced exclusively for more than thirty five years.
We have a successful track record in going up against tactics used by government prosecutors. From misdemeanor shoplifting or DUII charges to defense in the most serious charges, our law firm will offer a vigorous criminal defense for any criminal matter with one exception: we do not handle death penalty matters.
Aggressive Representation Against a Range of Criminal Charges
For many clients, and even for some attorneys, Ballot Measure 11 causes some confusion. Some defendants do not know they are facing a serious Ballot Measure 11 assault charge. Others believe in error they are up against a Ballot Measure 11 sex charge. Either way, serious charges deserve a serious response. Our law firm has successfully represented clients facing these and many other types of criminal charges.
The Prosecution Has Begun Its Work — We Should Begin Ours
No matter the circumstances, anyone under investigation or facing criminal prosecution should retain the best possible attorney as early in the process as possible.
