Understanding Your Misdemeanor Charges
After you have been charged with a misdemeanor, it is important that you understand your charges and your legal options. If you are convicted, you could be facing jail time, fines, and other civil penalties. Having a criminal record can also affect your personal life and your future employment opportunities. Our goal is to quickly build a case on your behalf that brings into question the allegations against you.

Do Misdemeanors Go Away in Oregon?
The way to make a misdemeanor go away is to have it expunged. Most misdemeanors, non-conviction records, and most Class C felonies are expungeable. Only a small number of Class A and B felonies are expungeable. Cases that are eligible include drug possession, domestic violence and assault, etc.
