Richard White
Portland
503-793-1662

from The Oregonian; Wednesday, December 8, 1999 "Police told to return medical marijuana."

The bureau says it would violate federal law if it released the drugs, and the City Council will decide today whether to appeal   "Judge Robert Redding's ruling in October was one the first tests of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Act, said Richard White, Kama's attorney.   "It does set a precedent in that it legitimizes the law in the eye of the court," White said.   During the proceedings, White argued that police were wrong in taking the drug from his client, who had medical reasons for using it. The judge ordered only a small amount of the drug to be returned.   Kama could not be reached for comment Tuesday, and White would not disclose his client's medical conditions."   Visit: www.marijuana.org/Oregonian12-8-99.htm for more details.

from Voter Power Weekly Newsletter, February 8, 2002, "Update: Portland City Attorney's Office to Appeal Kama Case".

Richard White, the attorney for Kama who prevailed in the Court of Appeals ruling, subsequently told Voter Power "I feel that the Court of Appeals made a proper ruling. I don't think the [Oregon] Supreme Court should accept the city's petition to review the Court of Appeals decision.   If the Supreme Court does decide to hear this case, I think they should accept the reasoning of the Court of Appeals."   The case is 9906-34218; A109667, State of Oregon, Plaintiff, and City of Portland, Appellant, v. Samuel Kim Kama, Respondent.  A complete copy of the Court of Appeals ruling has been posted at the Voter Power Web site.  Visit: www.voterpower.org/news/020208news.html for more details.

Oregon, Lawyers, general. Need an attorney in Oregon? Get help with Oregon law

Case / Attorney search engines ... Entry form, lawyer lookup (post case for review).

How they generally work ...

1. You Post Your Case. Select a category and then fill out a brief form (it takes less than five minutes to complete). They generally work without revealing your identity, confidentially collecting info on where you need legal help. These groups have lawyers nationwide, and can usually help you even if you live in one location and need legal help in another. They may ask you a series of questions to help you through the process just like a lawyer would do during an initial interview

2. Cases are Matched to Attorneys. After they receive your form, their professionals will quickly review your information and match you with a lawyer from the network who can assist you with your legal case. Instant email notifications are sent to lawyers in the legal area and location you selected. In some cases they will also telephone the lawyers. They then provide this lawyer with the completed form. Lawyers see your case information and where you need legal help, but not your identity. NOTE: (Systems vary) Some lawyers are notified of your case if it is within 50 miles of their workplace. Some lawyers choose to be notified if your case is within 100 miles, while others choose statewide or nationwide.

3. Lawyers Reply With Offers on Your Case. The network lawyer then reviews your information and contacts you directly. Lawyers send messages to you expressing their interest in your case. At this time, you can learn more about your lawyer and ask further questions about your legal issue. NOTE: (Systems vary) Although you may begin receiving lawyer offer messages immediately, it is recommend you wait 1-5 business days to allow the majority of lawyers to review your case.

4. You Select the Best Lawyer for You. Review each lawyer’s offer message. The message should state how the lawyer can help you, and the $ rate they would charge. Review each lawyer’s profile to discover his or her specific legal experiences and areas of practice. Learn where they went to law school and their professional affiliations. Feel confident in knowing that every lawyer is prescreened by the service to guarantee they are validly licensed and in good standing with their state bar association. Contact the lawyer or lawyers you feel could best help your case. There are should be no unexpected obligations! Speak with as many or as few lawyers as you like.
