If you have been convicted of driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII or DUI) in the past and now are facing multiple DUI charges, it’s important to contact a defense attorney as soon as possible. DUI penalties in Oregon increase sharply if you have prior convictions. In addition to fines and jail time, the Oregon DMV will revoke your driving privileges for five years if you have three or more DUII convictions within a five-year period.
If you have prior DUI convictions, I am ready to provide you with the defense you need. In some cases, this will mean challenging the state’s case against you. In other cases, it will mean finding alternative sentencing options to keep you out of jail. Contact me to learn more.
Defending You From Multiple DUI Charges
As a former CLS prosecutor for the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office in Oregon, I know what it takes to build a solid defense to your charges.
In Oregon, drunk driving cases involve a surprising amount of technical evidence. There are many issues that can be challenged, including the breath test, the field sobriety test, probable cause for making the traffic stop and the handling of blood test results. Even police conduct at the scene can often be challenged for violation of your rights. If you have a conviction from another state and you didn’t have a lawyer to represent you, that conviction cannot be held against you.
Few people can afford to plead guilty to multiple DUI charges, especially if they have one or more prior convictions. Your reputation, your employment and your driving privileges are at stake.
Contact my Oregon criminal defense law firm to learn how I can help you fight your multiple DUI charges regardless of how many prior convictions you have on your record.
