Driving under the influence of intoxicants (called DUII in Oregon but also referred to as DUI or DWI) is one crime that can happen to almost anyone. If you drink and own a car, it's possible that you may one day be pulled over and charged with DUI.
I am Portland DUI lawyer Andy Green. The best defense for 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 pinpoint the issues that the prosecution might overlook.
The following pages provide more information about defense of drunk driving charges:

Whether this is your first Oregon DUI offense or you have been convicted in the past, I am ready to provide you with the criminal defense you need. I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your DUI case. I will answer your questions and put together a game plan to get started on the path to success.
Should I take a breath test if I am arrested on DUI?
Unfortunately there is no easy answer to this question. It really depends on the persons circumstances and record. For some people it's better to take the test, for some it's better to not take the test. In Oregon, you have the right to contact an attorney before you blow.
