Clayton M. Tullos is a Eugene, Oregon based experienced attorney with a practice geared toward criminal defense and family law. Clayton’s view on criminal defense is simple – he makes the government prove the case against you squarely within the bounds of the US and Oregon constitutions, statutes, and case law. If you have a loser case then Clayton negotiates and argues on your behalf so that any sanction is minimized (ex: less jail time, less fines, pleading to a lesser crime, etc). Clayton has represented individuals charged with minor crimes as well as the most serious such as murder. Every case receives the same review and careful consideration. No case is too small, nor too big.
Clayton is also an experienced civil litigator having litigated successfully motions for summary judgment, real property, divorce, custody, and a variety of other claims and defenses.
More often than not, Clayton is a less expensive quality attorney when compared to other attorneys.
