Protecting our clients since 1999
The Law Office of Michael Finch represents clients in the following criminal matters:

If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential to have an experienced criminal defense attorney zealously defend you in court.  Felonies are extremely serious crimes, such as murder, rape, armed robbery, credit card fraud and burglary. Felony convictions also have serious consequences.  A convicted felon will be sentenced to serve at least one year in a state and federal prison, and may be committed for life. In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country and the right to own a gun. Convicted felons also have to disclose their crimes on job applications, and also can be deported if they are not American citizens.

How you handle a felony charge can be the difference between life and death. The Law Office of Michael Finch has the necessary experience handling felony charges and works to attain the best possible result for you. We also handle cases involving Oregon’s Measure 11 as it pertains to the following serious crimes:

  • Arson
  • Assault
  • Attempted murder
  • Kidnapping
  • Manslaughter
  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Robbery
  • Sexual abuse and other sex crimes


Misdemeanors are crimes punishable by less than a year in prison, such as disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting and trespassing. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and can require you to spend time in jail. Let attorney Michael Finch represent you, and ensure that you receive a fair trial.

Juvenile law
