Aggressive Criminal Defense Representation
Located in Salem, Harris, Wyatt & Amala provides comprehensive criminal defense representation to clients in Marion County and throughout Oregon. We will help you fight the charges brought against you, always working to maximize the opportunity for a possible dismissal, acquittal or reduced sentencing. Our attorneys have experience defending clients against nearly any criminal charge, with particular focus on the following practice areas:
- Drug crimes — Our attorneys have experience defending clients against a range of drug-related charges, including possession, delivery and manufacture of controlled substances. If your vehicle was stopped and searched, resulting in a drug charge, we will fully investigate the police conduct surrounding your detention, arrest, or post-arrest interrogation, and determine the most viable course of legal action to defend you against the charges.
- DUII/traffic offenses — Driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII) is one of the most common charges that criminal defendants face in Oregon. If you have been arrested for a DUII offense, you may be facing serious fines, a loss of your driving privileges, probation and even potential jail time. Attorneys Gig Wyatt have been handling DUII defense representation for decades and possess an in-depth understanding of the laws and court procedures involved. With our collective experience, we have helped clients defeat DUII charges, negotiate reduced penalties and obtain minimum penalties in the event of a conviction.
- Sex crimes charges — Sex offenses vary from abuse and molestation to more serious crimes, such as sexual assault or rape. When an individual is accused of a sex crime, the personal, social and professional ramifications can be extremely damaging, even if the charges are ultimately dropped or a verdict of not guilty is reached. The stigma associated with sexual misconduct can impact your ability to obtain future employment and damage your personal relationships with family and friends. We can help mitigate the consequences of a sex offense investigation or charge and ensure that your rights are fully protected.
- Serious offenses/Measure 11 — Oregon’s Measure 11 imposes mandatory minimum prison sentences on perpetrators of violent crimes such as assault, kidnapping, rape and murder. Our firm zealously defends clients who have been charged with Measure 11 offenses. In some cases, we can negotiate with the district attorney to take the case out of Measure11, saving our clients from a lengthy prison term.
