CRIMINAL LAW

Defending yourself against criminal law accusations can be an overwhelming challenge. Valerie Wright and Patrick Flaherty will use their expertise and passion for criminal defense to guide you through the process. Our law office is located in Bend, OR, but we’re here to offer guidance to individuals who live anywhere in Central Oregon and beyond. Our attorneys’ invaluable and varied experience equip them to handle a variety of criminal defense needs, with a focus on cases that require serious sex crime defenses and measure 11 charges.

In the State of Oregon, special considerations arise due to the effects of Ballot Measure 11. The measure prohibits a judge from exercising discretion when a person pleads to or is found guilty of one of a dozen specific crimes. As a result plea negotiations take on new significance. Similarly, innocent people are faced with new challenges when deciding how to approach defending their case.

With more than six decades of experience in criminal law between the two of them, Valerie Wright and Patrick Flaherty will help you make the most informed decision regarding your case. They take pride in being extraordinary trial lawyers, and will fight for your defense not only armed with expertise and knowledge, but with dedication to your legal needs.

If you’ve been accused of committing a crime, remember, you have the right to remain silent. Even if no formal charges have yet been filed, don’t hesitate to give our law office a call. Feel free to contact us to learn more about how we can help you with your unique situation.
