Criminal Defense

Other Criminal Matters

In addition to our white-collar experience, Kauffman Kilberg has extensive experience successfully defending individuals accused of numerous other crimes in both federal and state courts.

In federal court, Kauffman Kilberg represents clients accused of drugs and narcotics offenses, weapons offenses, internet crimes, environmental crimes, and national security offenses. Having competent criminal defense counsel can mean the difference between a just result for the client and a long prison sentence. We strive to bring our extensive federal court experience to bear on advocating for our clients who find themselves at odds with the federal government.

In state court, Kauffman Kilberg represents clients in the full range of criminal cases, including homicide, assault, sex offenses, stalking and restraining orders, property crimes, identity theft, forgery, and others. In 1994, Oregon voters passed Ballot Measure 11 which substantially raised the stakes on a number of violent and sex crimes. Measure 11 mandates the imposition of lengthy prison terms ranging from 70 to 300 months for sixteen designated violent crimes and sex crimes and applies to juveniles as young as 15. Given the potential consequences of such prosecutions it is critical to retain counsel with substantial knowledge and experience with these types of cases.

Throughout every case of every size, we help our clients navigate and anticipate the serious consequences that flow from potential criminal convictions, including a having criminal record, registration requirements, debarment, and other collateral consequences. We also help clients deal with post-conviction matters, including appeals, claims for post-conviction relief, probation and supervision violations, and expungements.
