Portland Drug Crimes Defense Lawyer

Experienced Defense of Drug Crime Charges

Drug crimes carry serious consequences in Oregon. If convicted, you could be facing jail time, fines and damage to your reputation in the community. If you have been charged with a drug crime, you need a lawyer to help you minimize the damage or get your charges dropped somehow.

I am attorney David J. Celuch, and I focus on finding creative criminal defense solutions for my clients. If there is a way to get your sentence reduced or dropped, as your Portland drug crimes attorney, I will help you find it. I have been defending my clients against criminal charges for more than 15 years, and I opened my solo criminal defense law firm in 2003 to handle drug crimes and other areas of criminal defense law.

Types of Drug Charges in Oregon

I can represent you in almost any kind of drug crime charge in Oregon, including:

  • Manufacture of a controlled substance
  • Possession of a controlled substance
  • Delivery of a controlled substance
  • Possession of a substantial quantity of a controlled substance (considered delivery)
  • Delivery within 1,000 feet of a school (a Class A felony)

I handle drug crime defense cases involving marijuana, cocaine, heroin, Ecstasy, methamphetamine (meth), other illegal drugs, as well as prescription drugs.

Fighting for Your Constitutional Rights

Many cases involving drug charges come down to constitutional issues. Was the stop and detainment constitutional? Did the search conform to constitutional rules? Often, I can find errors in the legality of the stop or search that can get the charges dismissed.
