Medford Criminal Defense Attorney
As a criminal defense attorney in Medford Oregon, I specialize in defending Second Amendment rights and represent clients facing major felony and firearm arrests throughout Oregon. I am the principal attorney of Kollie Law, located in Medford, Oregon, and I have extensive experience in criminal law, having practiced in almost every county in Oregon as well as the Federal Courts.
I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, and I obtained my law degree from the University of Oregon School of Law after graduating from Oregon State University. During my second year of law school, I worked as a law clerk on criminal and DUII defense matters in the Portland Metro Area. As a third-year law student, I interned with the Lane County Public Defender's Office and later worked at a boutique criminal defense and DUII law firm in Portland, Oregon, where I trained under former prosecutors and experienced defense attorneys. I have taken on hundreds of cases and am certified by NHTSA and IACP to conduct field sobriety tests. I use my expertise to assist clients in DMV hearings and DUI trials throughout Oregon.
I have also helped countless individuals by instructing CHL classes, challenging the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, and assisting in obtaining Federal Firearms Licenses.
My experience and training have made me an ideal trial attorney. After practicing law in Portland for over seven years and in Bend for six years, I moved my family to Medford, Oregon in 2021. I am married and the proud father of twin boys, and I enjoy spending time with my family, running, hiking, hunting, and shooting.

Expungement is a legal process in which an individual's criminal record is sealed or erased. Expungement allows people with past criminal records to move on with their lives without the stigma of a criminal record affecting their future opportunities, such as employment or housing.
In Oregon, expungement is available for certain types of convictions, including some misdemeanors, some non-conviction records, and some juvenile records. However, not all crimes are eligible for expungement, and the requirements and procedures for expungement can vary depending on the type of conviction or record.
Our team at Kollie Law can help you determine if you are eligible for expungement and guide you through the expungement process. The process typically involves filing a petition with the court, providing information about the conviction or record to be expunged, and attending a hearing.
To successfully petition for expungement, an attorney must show that the individual has met all the eligibility requirements, including the waiting period, payment of all fines and restitution, and compliance with all other court orders.
Furthermore, an attorney must provide compelling reasons why the individual deserves expungement and how it will benefit their future prospects. This may include showing that the individual has been rehabilitated and has not been involved in any criminal activity since the conviction.
