Driving under the influence of intoxicants (called a DUII in Oregon, but also commonly referred to as DUI or DWI) is a criminal charge that almost anyone may face. If you drink and own a car, it is possible that you may be pulled over and charged with drunk driving.
I am Portland DUI defense attorney Andy Green. The best defense against a drunk driving charge starts with a criminal defense attorney who can anticipate the prosecutor's legal tactics. As a former CLS prosecutor for the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office in Oregon, I know exactly how to evaluate the prosecution's case and how to pinpoint the issues the prosecution might overlook.

The Biggest Mistake to Make After an Arrest
The biggest mistake most people make after being arrested and charged with drunk driving is not seeking the advice of a qualified attorney. DUII/DUI penalties are severe and can follow you for the rest of your life. I understand common DUI issues and how to best attack them in court. If it is your first offense, you may be eligible for a DUII/DUI diversion program. If it is a subsequent offense, I will work hard to help you get your charges reduced or dismissed. However, it is of the utmost importance that you speak with me before saying anything to the police or the prosecution.
