Portland Bank Robbery Attorneys
Providing Proficient & Experienced Legal Representation
The seriousness of federal bank robbery and armed robbery charges cannot be underestimated. Penalties and long-term negative consequences can be life-changing, including lengthy prison sentences. While those accused understand what they are facing in terms of consequences, they often do not understand that the federal court system is uniquely complex and that they should be represented by an attorney who knows how to navigate it successfully.
At Kohlmetz, Steen & Hanrahan, P.C., we take pride in our ability to provide strong and aggressive defense in even the most challenging federal robbery cases. Our bank robbery attorneys in Portland have more than 60 years of combined experience in criminal defense. Even the "newest" member of our team has been successfully defending the accused for more than a decade. Needless to say, our experience and the depth of knowledge that comes with it has played a major role in our success.
Bank Robbery Charges
Many alleged bank robbery cases involve unarmed robberies. These are cases in which the accused is said to have used a note or a request to compel a worker at a bank to hand over large quantities of money. While the penalties may not be quite as severe as those that come with a conviction for armed robbery, these are certainly not minor charges. They need to be handled by an attorney willing to dig in, do the necessary work, and fight to obtain positive results.
Armed Robbery Charges
When a weapon is involved in the commission of a crime, the potential penalties increase dramatically, regardless of how that weapon was used. If a gun, knife, or other weapon was used to commit a robbery, a prison sentence is going to be a very real possibility, if convicted. This is true whether the allegations involve a bank robbery, a store robbery, or any other sort of robbery. Our clients enlist us because we know exactly how serious these charges are and we match that seriousness in our approach to defending them.
