You Deserve High-Quality Defense Representation
If you have been arrested for or accused of domestic violence in Oregon, time is of the essence, and our skilled Portland criminal defense lawyers can help. Being charged with domestic violence has immediate ramifications on the defendant and his or her family.
For example, the court will automatically impose a “no contact order” following a domestic violence arrest. This means the spouses or significant others involved in the case will be required to live separately and avoid contacting each other in-person or by electronic means.
Are you charged with domestic violence? Working with a Portland criminal defense lawyer immediately can make the difference in your case. Our defense team strives to secure the best possible outcome given your unique circumstances, no matter how complex.

“I hired Jeff Siefman to represent me on a domestic dispute that led to my arrest in October. Jeff was upfront and informative when I came to him about a no contact order that was placed that neither myself nor my significant other asked for. Jeff had the no contact order lifted within 3 days and had my case dropped to a violation withno jail time and minimal fines. He guaranteed this level of commitment throughout the entirety of my case. I must say that he produces results. He is very proactive and was quick to respond to all questions and concerns.”

- A person who cohabitates with or has cohabitated with the defendant
- A person with whom the defendant has or had a sexually intimate relationship
- The other parent of the defendant’s child (when the parents are not married to each other)
Domestic violence is taken very seriously by the courts. Consequences could include the following:
- No Contact Orders separating you from your family (this often begins immediately upon being charged)
- Jail or prison time
- Fines and restitution
- Mandatory, court-monitored anger management courses
- Loss of custody of your minor children
- Restriction from possessing a firearm
Many counties such as Multnomah County and Clackamas County offer special domestic violence courts. These courts often sound like a good alternative, but in the end, they can put someone who is charged with domestic violence into an even worse position. Our attorneys will advise you on the unique challenges of your domestic violence case and guide you through the process.
