*Time is Critical After an Oregon DUII Arrest*
Before you read any further, please note that certain timelines start to run immediately after your Oregon arrest for DUII. If you do not request a hearing in writing from the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles within 10 days of your arrest, your license may be automatically suspended. Contact an experienced Oregon DUII lawyer immediately to preserve this right before time expires.
Attorneys Who Know The Oregon Diversion ProcessOur lawyers are big advocates of the DUII Diversion option, generally available to first time offenders (or those who have not participated in Diversion in Oregon or a similar program in the past 15 years). It is a program that, while not entirely painless, puts the client back in control of the outcome of their case. If successful, the Diversion program will result in the DUII charge being dismissed, no license suspension associated with the criminal case, and the ability to avoid SR-22 insurance requirements. That said, the process can be confusing, particularly when taken together with the completely separate license suspension issue associated with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). You need an advocate on your side who knows how these issues interplay, and who can help you coordinate each issue to your advantage. Oregon Diversion FAQ
The Philosophy of Our Oregon DUII Diversion LawyersDUIIs happen to good people. Nobody starts out the day expecting to need a DUII attorney. However, sometimes circumstances unexpectedly require you to seek help. Whether an arrest for Oregon DUII is caused by a lapse of judgment, a single bad decision, or even just plain bad luck, you need somebody on your side looking out for you from the moment a police officer places you under arrest. We know that DUII arrests happen across all economic groups, races, sexes, and religions. An arrest for DUII is often the first encounter with the criminal justice system that lifelong law-abiding citizens have ever had. The process can be simultaneously humiliating, confusing, and terrifying.
We understand and believe that DUIIs happen to good people – mothers and fathers, grandparents, children, teachers, politicians, or even judges. Our Oregon DUII attorneys maintain that our only job for our client is to help them through the legal process, not to judge the circumstance.
We believe that an informed client is more comfortable with the legal process. Our goal from the first meeting forward is to educate our clients about what to expect, rather than keeping them in the dark about what the future holds in their case. People often begin researching attorneys by using generic terms like “best Portland DUII lawyer” or “best Oregon DUII lawyer.” The truth is, the best DUII lawyer for your circumstance is the one who accomplishes your goals, communicates with you regularly, and provides solid legal advice along the way. We believe that it is important to build a trusting relationship between client and lawyer so that we can best serve your needs.
