The attorneys at Levine & McHenry handle all aspects of criminal defense, from pretrial matters through post-conviction litigation.
Felonies, Misdemeanors, and Violations
Our attorneys understand that even minor charges can cause great upheaval and
emotional distress in the lives of the accused and their families. Whether
you have been charged with a minor violation or a major felony, Mr. Levine and Mr. McHenry
will represent you effectively, backed by decades of experience. The firm
represents people charged with white collar crimes, drug crimes, and any other type of criminal offense.
Federal and State Charges
Our attorneys practice in both federal courts and Oregon state courts, including
Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, and Marion Counties. Whether you have been
charged with a federal offense, a state offense, or a violation of a local
city ordinance, Levine & McHenry can help.
Early Resolution, Trials, and Appeals
Mr. Levine and Mr. McHenry will work diligently to resolve your case in the manner that is
best for you. Whether that is pursuing pre-trial dismissal, a plea agreement,
or a verdict of Not Guilty after a trial, we will advocate zealously
on your behalf. Our attorneys will also handle the appeals process, through the
state and federal courts of appeal as well as the Oregon Supreme Court and
the United States Supreme Court, if necessary.
Post-Conviction and Habeas Corpus Relief
Even if you have already been convicted and lost your appeal, there may be
ways to attack your conviction through the state Post-Conviction Relief process
and the federal Habeas Corpus process. Our attorneys have extensive experience
successfully litigating these issues. If you believe you have grounds to overturn
your conviction, contact Levine & McHenry for a free consultation.
Expungements and Pardons
If you have prior misdemeanor or felony convictions, you may be eligible to
have them expunged under applicable state and federal laws. Our attorneys will
work with you to accomplish this and get your record clean. In addition, our lawyers can draft and file petitions for governmental
and presidential pardons.
Government agents often seize an individual's personal property, such as houses
or automobiles, in relation to a criminal investigation. Even if you are not
convicted of any criminal charge, the government may institute criminal or
civil forfeiture proceedings against you in an attempt to keep your property.
If this has happened to you, Mr. Levine and Mr. McHenry can represent you in the forfeiture
proceedings, and will act zealously to defend your rights and your property.
Civil Rights and Police Misconduct
If you have been the victim of police misconduct, or otherwise experienced
a violation of your civil rights under the Oregon or United States Constitutions,
Levine & McHenry will help you recover any damages you may be
entitled to. Contact the office for a free consultation.
