Jeff specializes in representing criminal defendants in a wide range of criminal charges including: DUI, driving while suspended, drug crimes, sex crimes, Measure 11, felonies, probation violations, parole violations, Administrative License Hearings, computer crimes, white collar crimes, and traffic crimes.  Jeff is a competent and capable attorney who will zealously represent you with compassion for your predicament and will help you achieve the best outcome in your criminal case.  While the primary geographic area of his practice centers around the Portland metropolitan area: Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington Counties, Jeff is available to represent you in any court in the state of Oregon. The first consultation with Jeff is always free, and if he can’t personally help you, he will find someone who can.


Jeff grew up in Michigan and earned his undergraduate degree from Michigan State University.  After graduation Jeff moved to Colorado to pursue his love of rock climbing and his passion for the outdoors. He then moved to Oregon to attend Willamette University College of Law.  It was at Willamette University that Jeff began to hone his skills in criminal law. Throughout law school Jeff worked for the Polk County District Attorney’s Office.  It was the holistic approach of that office that would lay the foundation for Jeff becoming the criminal defense lawyer he is today.


After graduating law school, Jeff chose to become a criminal defense attorney; this decision was based on a desire to protect the Constitution, fight for the little guy, and help people in need take their lives back. You can often find Jeff at the office toiling away with his companion Reggae, an amazing Black Lab that loves a good game of ball at lunch. When the two of them are not in the office fighting for your rights, they can be found rock climbing, snowboarding, running, hiking, doing yoga, or just enjoying all the beauty and fun Oregon has to offer

When my previous attorney refused to finish the job he was paid for, I was referred to Seifman & Pond. It was a blessing. Jeff is a classy character, extremely knowledgable and was professional throughout the entire painful process. He answered all my calls and emails promptly, unlike other attorneys! He also got the job done and done right! If you want quality and performance at a reasonable price I recommend calling Siefman & Pond.

Excellent experience
My experience with Mr. Seifman was excellent. He was always very professional and responsive. He immediately addressed any issues as they came up regarding my case. In the end I was very satisfied with how the case turned out. I would Recommend Jefferey Siefman to anyone.

Thank you Jeff!
I hired Jeff Siefman to represent me on a domestic dispute that led to my arrest in October. Jeff was very upfront and informative when I came to him about a no contact order that was placed that neither myself or significant other asked for. Jeff had the no contact order lifted within in 3 days and had my case dropped to a violation with no jail time and minimal fines and he gauranteed this level of commitment throughout the entirety of my case. I must say that he produces results. He is very proactive and was quick to respond to all my questions and concerns. I would recommend Jeff to anyone who finds themselves confused and in need of an upfront and dedicated lawyer. Again, Thank you Jeff!!!

Respectful and knowledgeable service that gave me confidence and a feeling of support!
Contacted the attorney in the evening by email and received a response first thing in the morning. He answered all my questions and when I called the office that same day, I talked to another attorney, Josh Pond, who also treated me with respect and talked with me over the phone. I would recommend them to anyone who needs to have knowledgeable and respectful attorneys in their corner!

Look no further...
After a life-changing experience on ambien (gone wrong), Jeff was my second lawyer in a criminal defense case. Jeff is honest, extremely communicative (always keeping me informed and responsive to my calls and emails), sincere, and reliable. He has held my hand through a very unfortunate circumstance, and I strongly recommend him! Thanks Jeff!

Jeff for Jim, Attorney this
Jeff was recommended to me by a family member after his DUII. While my offense was similar, it was a bit more complicated. It didn't take long to realize that Jeff Siefman was willing and able to tackle all aspects of my arrest. He even paid close attention to the reports returned to the court from my intervention group. I was surprised to see that, in the verbal vs legal terms, how much difference a word or two here or there makes in the final document issued to the court. This guy knows his stuff and will work for your best interest. As I stated earlier, my case was a bit more complicated, including a firearm, OMMP medicine and cash. Jeff knows when to hold and when to fold. Trust him......... Jim

Best Attorney Ever!
Jeff Siefman did a outstanding job when representing me on a Probation Violation Criminal Case in Clackamas County. We were in between a rock and a hard space as a result of it being a probation violation because at that point I had already admitted guilt in the matter that gave me the violation. I had always used public defenders prior to luckily being able to retain Mr.Siefman. Facing 18 months in Prison for my mistake Mr Siefman spent diligent time going over multiple cases until he found a loop hole. His efforts and trustworthy attitude got me off of the violation with NO TIME IN PRISON. I owe more than the cost of the attorney, he made it so I can continue to run my business and provide for my family, I get to look in my sons eyes and know that I am safe thanks to Jeffrey Siefman. I highly recommend him, no matter how big or small the case. His efforts and honesty will prevail to fighting the flaw in the system. Thank You Jeff!
