Powershell Get-AdObejct with -filter option containing variable

Hi,
When i execute this powershell command line i have some result :
Get-ADObject -Properties mail, proxyAddresses -Filter {mail -like "*pierre.w*" -or proxyAddresses -like "*pierre.w*"} |ft

but when i execute those lines i've got a error :
$emailportion="pierre.w"
$filtre="{mail -like ""*$emailportion*"" -or proxyAddresses -like ""*$emailportion*""}"
Get-ADObject -Properties mail, proxyAddresses -Filter $filtre

Get-ADObject : Error parsing query: '{mail -like "*pierre.w*" -or proxyAddresses -like "*pierre.w*"}' Error Message: 'syntax error' at position: '1'.
At line:1 char:1
+ Get-ADObject -Properties mail, proxyAddresses -Filter $filtre

The variable $filtre contain : {mail -like "*pierre.w*" -or proxyAddresses -like "*pierre.w*"}

The help on get-ADObject show the -filter option as a string
