Frequently Asked Questions

Can a drug possession case be dismissed?

Depending on the specifics of your case, it may be possible to get any charge dismissed, even a drug possession charge. For example, your case may involve a controlled substance for which you had a valid prescription or the arresting officer may not have had probable cause to search you or your vehicle.

Our drug crime attorney will look at your case from every angle to determine the best possible defense strategy.

Do I need a drug crime attorney?

If you’re asking this question, the answer is probably yes. But what you really need is a dedicated criminal defense attorney like Craig W. Russell. Other lawyers who do not specialize in criminal law may not be able to provide you with the best possible chance to achieve a positive outcome in your case.

How much does a drug crime attorney cost?

Every case is different and it’s impossible to provide an accurate answer without knowing the details of your case. However, we encourage clients to think of their defense costs as an investment in their future and their freedom.

Can I get a DUII because I took drugs?

Yes. Oregon’s “drunk driving” laws are not specific to alcohol, they apply to any intoxicant that affects your ability to drive safely. Drunk driving, driving while high, or driving while under the influence of pain medication can all result in a DUI charge.
