“Mr. Greenman is an excellent attorney. I am a firm believer in his talents and abilities. I have used his services for two separate incidents which should show how much faith I have in him. His professionalism in court was exceptional. The customer service provided by his staff is flawless. Mr. Greenman always shows compassion and treats me like family. I highly recommend him and will always refer him to my peers if they are seeking legal advice.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a criminal defense attorney do?

A Portland criminal defense lawyer will defend you against a prosecutor working for the state, a public agency, or a plaintiff. A good criminal defense attorney may even be able to get your case dismissed so you never have to set foot in court.
Your defense attorney may…

  • Assist you before you’ve even been charged with a crime

  • Aid you during pre-trial

  • Convince the court to lower or eliminate your bail

  • Recommend you plead guilty or not guilty

  • Give insight into whether you should accept a deal from the prosecution

  • Suggest a treatment program that could help reduce your sentence

With your name on the line, a criminal defense lawyer in Portland is well worth it.

What should I expect when working with Adam Greenman Law?

After you’ve been arrested, call Adam Greenman. He will explain your rights to you after you’ve been arrested, as well as your options for a plea bargain or probation. From there, he will research your case, making sure you understand your options, providing invaluable expert advice, and preparing you for courtroom procedure.

If you do have a trial, Adam will question and cross-examine witnesses, present evidence that could clear your name, and negotiate on your behalf. Because you likely lack detailed knowledge of state and federal law, and public defenders are consistently overloaded with cases, partnering with Adam as your Portland criminal defense attorney is your best choice.

What should I look for in an attorney?

Because criminal defense proceedings can be complicated, you need a highly qualified, experienced, and trustworthy lawyer. Additionally, your attorney should have excellent communication and negotiation skills in order to fight for you in court.
