I am Portland marijuana possession defense lawyer Andy Green. I opened my law firm with the belief that people with serious legal problems, such as a misdemeanor or felony drug charge, deserve respect and committed service from their legal counsel. I won’t treat you like a case file. I won’t talk down to you. I won’t judge you. I won’t make empty promises or raise false hopes. I will guarantee that you will receive the highest levels of individualized service and my personal dedication to helping you achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
A Former Prosecutor Who Understands the Criminal Justice System
Prior to opening the law office of Andy Green, Attorney at Law, P.C., I worked as a prosecutor in the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office. I was in court every day, earning the respect of prosecutors responsible for prosecuting drug crimes. I understand their strategies. I will use that understanding to provide you with a strong defense against your drug charges.
I Will Work Aggressively for the Best Outcome
When it comes to drug charges, the person who has been charged often has chemical dependency issues and is far removed from the stereotype of the hardened criminal. In these cases, a diversion strategy may be an option. Probation and counseling programs can sometimes serve as an alternative to a conviction.
If you are willing to work with the court to do everything required for success, I will help the prosecutor work with you. Getting the prosecutor to accept a diversion program as an alternative to a conviction requires knowledge, skill and respect from the DA’s office. These are all qualities that I developed during my time as a prosecutor.
