Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    70%
    I have practiced as a criminal defense attorney for my entire career in both Jackson and Josephine Counties. I have tried dozens of cases to a jury, argued over a thousand hearings, and appeared in court countless times. I handle cases ranging from simple misdemeanors to complex Measure 11 felonies.

    15 years, 1,200 cases

  2. DUI and DWI
    30%
    The crime of DUII can happen to anyone. DUII law is the most complicated area of law in the criminal justice system. I specialize in DUII defense. DUII defense is constantly changing. New science and new defenses are arising nearly every week. If you have been arrested for a DUII then you only have 10 days to request a hearing or your license will be automatically suspended.

    15 years, 300 cases

I believe in dedicated, client-driven advocacy. I have aggressively represented well over 1000 clients in Jackson and Josephine Counties since 2009. A career as a trial attorney is exciting and rewarding. Fighting for my clients against any odds and creatively defending cases against the power of the state is my highest priority.

 

I have tried dozens of cases to a jury, including more than 20 Driving Under the Influence trials. I have argued hundreds of motions and sentencings, appeared thousands of time in Court, handled hundreds of felonies and Measure 11 cases, and negotiated excellent resolutions or dismissals for the great majority of my clients.

 

In addition to my commitment to my clients and my practice I am a lifelong Oregonian, a passionate gardener and cook, an avid hiker, and a voracious reader.

 

I will work tirelessly, creatively, and intelligently on any case and any problems that arise in my clients’ lives. I am confident that you will find me to be a pleasure to work with.

Flawless in communication.
I hired Mr.Pedemonte to represent me in a criminal matter. From the first phone call to his office with Jessica I felt valued and heard. It’s not something you find with local attorneys. Actually I’m not a fan of many of the ones in Medford. But I’m not here to speak about that. Garren is not only highly intelligent. He’s very strategic and methodical in his thought process. He’s good at doing what he says, and when he says it. He’s with with every dollar I paid him. I’d have no hesitation recommending him to anyone who’s facing a criminal charge. He’s worth it. If you’re hear reading this make the phone call. You get what you pay for with your attorney!

Amazing lawyer
I was fortunate to have Garren Pedemonte as a defense attorney. I was going through a difficult time I had serious charges against me, I was referred to Mrs. Pedemonte by a friend. I can honestly say that he was able to guide me through a rough process, he was compassionate and understanding to my situation. He was also very upfront but also gave me hope. I am so very l grateful to have had Garren as my defense attorney.

Best attorney
I was so very fortunate to have Garren as my attorney. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He has a lot of experience and knows a lot about what happens here locally, judges, court proceedings etc. What I was most impressed about was that from the beginning he provided me with his cell phone # and email and I was able to text, call or email anytime. I felt supported and listened to. I would not hesitate to hire him again or highly recommend him as an attorney!

A great guy to have on your side
Having never been on the wrong side of the law before, I found the experience of being charged with a DUII very confusing and not a little frightening. I was referred to Garren by a friend who described him as the kind of guy who would fight for you every inch of the way. I wholeheartedly agree with that assessment, and would have no hesitation in recommending Garren to others. He was unfailingly reliable, contactable, reassuring and professional throughout all the complicated procedures I had to go through to answer the charge and get onto the DUII diversion program. He also spent a good deal of time working with my immigration attorney, at no extra charge, on major visa issues that arose as a result of this charge. I am not a US national and the experience of being confronted by the byzantine complexities of the legal system in this country was downright terrifying. I don't know how I would have managed without Garren's help. I hope to never need a criminal attorney again, but, if I do, I know who I'll hire.

Life saver
What an amazing lawyer. Always kept up with me and let me know what’s going on. Got a felony reduced to a misdemeanor and saved me from going to jail. If ever I need help again in Jackson county. Hope I won’t. But if I do he will definitely be the man I call. Thank you Garren I appreciate your hard work and dedication.

Best attorney I've ever had!
An unfortunate situation found me needing an attorney in Medford. I do not live in the Medford area, so a quick phone call to a friend directed me to Garren. First impressions were made over the phone which was a very positive experience right from the beginning. He was very prompt in calling on the appointed day. He was right to the point in regards to my situation as far as what to expect, what the cost would be, and how long it might take to get the situation completed. Through the whole process he kept in touch with me by phone and was considerate of the fact that I lived 4 hours away. After my first face to face meeting with him, I was sure I made a good decision in asking him to take my case. He did everything he said he was going to do and explained everything thoroughly. In closing, I want to add, his office staff was very professional and friendly in a very comfortable atmosphere.

Excelent Criminal Derense Attorney
Although Garren looks very young, don't let his looks the fool you. His experience, tenacity and dedication to his craft are unmatched. He pulled out all the stops in my defense and got the prosecutor to dismiss the charges against me.

Professional yet Still personal
My underage child was arrested for a DUI in Oregon and we are from a different state. I read some reviews about Garren and hoped he was as good as I had read. Well He was even better he returned our phone calls and emails in a timely manner and always made us feel as if we were his only clients even though we definetly were not.

Effective and Efficient
Mr. Pedemonte is extremely efficient and highly effective. He quickly assessed my legal situation and quickly developed a plan of defense. Garren was very clear in his explanation of my circumstances, outlined the options, and, once hired, executed the plan. Garren is a great, clear communicator and he and his office staff quickly responded to the many questions I had during the process. I highly recommend Mr. Pedemonte if you are need of defense.

Great Experience
Professional and caring describes my experience with The Law Office of Garren Pedemonte. Garren listened to the details of my case, interpreted the law, told me all the worst-case scenarios and had the petition ready for signatures the same day as my initial consultation. GREAT NEWS came yesterday! The petition was successful. Additionally, Garren’s fees are reasonable, and he was always punctual for any appointments that we had. Garren is my first choice if I ever require the services of an attorney in the Medford area again.

He gave my life back.
After meeting with a couple of other expungement attorneys previously, and being told that there was basically nothing they could do for me, I was losing all hope that I could move forward in my path to becoming a physician. After a great deal of research to find an attorney to handle my complex expungement case, Garren Pedemonte was suggested to me by my previous defense attorney. Mr. Pedemonte replied to me immediately and made time to meet with me within the limited timeframe that I had available. Upon meeting, his competence and professionalism were obvious and he was very prepared to discuss the details of my case, my situation, and my needs. He explained everything very clearly- what our options were, what needed to happen for each possible scenario, and his plan of action to make it happen. I felt that I finally had someone truly on my team, willing to fight for me, and committed to my cause. He knows the law extremely well and is adept at working within the system to make it work for you. He obtained all of my records, told me exactly what HE needed from me, what I needed to do on my end to make it happen, and kept me apprised every step of the way. He worked diligently and efficiently, always in communication with me about the status of my case and what was happening next. He sent me drafts of letters he had written for me to read over to be sure everything was accurate before sending them to the judge. I was very pleased and impressed with how much time and effort he put into the case for me, and absolutely elated when he told me the amazing news that he had been successful in expunging my conviction. He is an amazing attorney whom I cannot recommend highly enough! Hiring Mr. Pedemonte was one of the greatest decisions I have ever made. He truly made it possible for me to live my dream that would have been impossible without his diligence and expertise, and his willingness to really go the extra mile on my behalf. If you need an attorney who is an expert, a professional, will work hard on your behalf, and will treat you like he really cares about your outcome, Hire Garren Pedemonte.

Hard working and Honest
I hired Garren to represent me in a multiple count case (Menacing and Disorderly Conduct). He was able to thoroughly explain my charges as well as represent me with out having to appear myself as I live out of state. He was always patient and quick in response to any questions I had. He set a clear and concise plan of action and never wavered from his course. He maintains a high level of respect towards the officers of the court and law enforcement community. Beyond this he is sympathetic towards your situation and eager and willing to assist in getting your life back on track.
