Your Rights After Arrest

If you were recently arrested, now is the time to understand your rights. Even if you are charged with a serious crime, you still have options in your defense. At KGR Law, I pride myself on being a lawyer who is willing to listen to your story and advocate for you within the Oregon criminal justice system.

To help you along the path toward a fair outcome, let me outline your rights after arrest:

  1. You don't have to admit guilt. As the accused, you are innocent until proven guilty in the court of law. It is the state's job to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed a crime. As your attorney, I will protect you from the perils of investigators and the court system. Further, I will examine every aspect of your case to raise questions about the state's arguments. Don't talk to the authorities without talking to me first.
  2. You have a right to a fair trial. You have the right to choose how to pursue your case. Some people accept a settlement and never have to go to court. Others want to appear in front of a judge and jury to tell their story. As your attorney, I will help you choose the most effective path to take in your defense.
  3. You have a right to an attorney. Taking on the state alone is a daunting task. Overzealous prosecutors and investigators will try to confuse and intimidate you in an effort to take further action against you. As an attorney, I have more than a decade of experience defending my clients from the malice of the state, and I am ready to represent you too.
