Oregon Law Enforcement Consulting Group is a law enforcement training and consulting organization focusing on providing innovative instruction to officers with a focus on reducing officer and organizational civil liability. 


Our focus is on the following areas:  Use of force; use of deadly force (including officer involved shootings); stops and detentions; arrests; searches; protests and First Amendment issues; and police pursuits.



Company founder David Lesh has been an Oregon lawyer since 1990.  He served the Oregon's largest county for five years as a David Lesh, Law Enforcement / Police Lawyer and AttorneyDeputy District Attorney.  There, he prosecuted property crimes, vice crimes, controlled substance offenses, felony assaults, sexual assaults, and sex crimes against children. 


Mr. Lesh also worked for more than a year as a lawyer inside the Portland Police Bureau's east precinct where he provided assistance to officers on a daily basis. 


More recently, Mr. Lesh served the City of Portland as the lead civil attorney to the Portland Police Bureau.  In this position, he provided advice, assistance, training and lawsuit defense to an organization with more than one thousand sworn officers. 

In addition to assisting and advising law enforcement, Mr. Lesh has litigated a wide variety of cases in state and federal court.  He has successfully defended law enforcement officers on claims alleging negligence in police pursuits; excessive force; First Amendment violations; the unlawful interception of communications; the unlawful use of trap and trace devices and more. 


Mr. Lesh was featured in the Lawyers Weekly USA article, "Choosing a Jury in a Police 'Excessive Force' Case."  He has written a number of articles on law enforcement liability reduction and his work was most recently published in the March/April 2003 issue of Sheriff magazine.  He has been interviewed on law enforcement issues by CNN and USA Today among others. 


Now a lawyer in private practice, David Lesh provides private legal representation to officers and others in addition to his law enforcement consulting and training practice.
