Illegal Search and Seizure Defense: Eugene, Oregon
It is a simple equation: If the prosecution cannot get their evidence admitted into court, they cannot convict you. Article I, Section 9 of Oregon's State Constitution and the Fourth Amendment to the Bill of Rights place limits on what the police can do when detaining you and gathering evidence. Our firm has been successfully defending clients on the basis of these laws for over 30 years.

Since 1979, the law firm of David A. Hill has been fighting to protect the rights of the accused, and the rights of all Oregonians, to be safe from warrantless searches and seizures and from overzealous government authorities.
Although there are some exceptions, warrants are generally required before police officers can legally "intercept" private communications or conduct a search and/or seizure of evidence from your home, automobile, office or your person. Because of this, illegal search and seizure issues are common to most criminal cases.
Criminal defense lawyer David A. Hill is skilled at identifying incorrect or false information used to obtain a warrant and at raising numerous other issues in well-drafted motions aimed at suppressing evidence that was obtained by an illegal search or seizure by the police.
In many cases, the first issue is whether or not the police had enough reasonable suspicion to stop someone. If a police officer has only a hunch, that is not enough. The police must show valid probable cause in order to obtain a legal search warrant. Attorney Hill is adept at showing judges where the police have failed to meet these minimum requirements, and having such evidence suppressed from the case. That is how criminal cases are won.
