Portland, Oregon Criminal Attorney

Specializing in the Defense of Serious Crimes

The Law Offices of William Bruce Shepley combines experience, dedication and commitment to protect those charged with criminal offenses in and around Oregon City and Portland, Oregon, including Clackamas and Multnomah Counties within the following practice areas:

Portland, Oregon felony defense Attorney Wm. Bruce Shepley brings more than 20 years of criminal defense experience to achieve excellent results for his criminal defense clients. Although he represents clients in a wide range of criminal matters, his specialty is defending clients charged with Ballot Measure 11 crimes – serious crimes in which Oregon voters approved long mandatory sentences. These crimes include certain homicides, robberies, kidnappings, serious assaults and a number of sexual offenses. The notion that only criminals are charged with crimes of this nature is a myth – Attorney Shepley's former clients include police officers, prosecutors and other public officials.

Portland criminal defense lawyer Wm. Bruce Shepley represents clients through every stage of the defense process, including contacts with police, contacts with prosecutors, the arrest, custody, posting bail, criminal charges, acquittal, trial and sentencing.

Portland domestic violence lawyer Wm. Bruce Shepley also represents defendants charged with domestic violence crimes, which he recognizes must be handled with care and efficiency. The initial phases of these types of cases cause great trauma to families because of the arrest, the "no contact" provisions of release orders and the delay in final disposition. He believes that "no contact" orders must be modified as quickly as possible in order to accommodate the realities of families including minor children and, often, economic relationships that would be compromised when people are forbidden from communicating with each other. In domestic violence cases, Oregon criminal defense lawyer Wm. Bruce Shepley believes that coordinating with the alleged victim to bring about a positive result is often an effective strategy.

Representation on criminal matters takes many forms and has a multitude of objectives. Whenever possible, Oregon criminal defense Attorney Wm. Bruce Shepley's primary concern is to prevent potential criminal cases from becoming formal charges in the public courts. Toward that end, clients should contact his office before being interviewed by police or prosecutors.

"My promise to each of my clients is my very best effort to prevent or end the prosecution against them completely and, in those cases where this is not entirely possible, to minimize the impact of the criminal justice system on their lives. I represent each client with both short-term and long-term objectives in mind. Every effort is made to resolve cases before they 'go public'."
