If this is your first DUI

you may qualify for the

Oregon DUI Diversion Program

If this is your first DUII/DUI offense, you may be able to participate in the Oregon DUI Diversion Program. By law in Oregon, this diversion program allows you to get the DUI dismissed. There are some responsibilities associated with this program, including fees, classes, and treatment programs, but given the alternative of hefty fines and jail time, this route is definitely preferred.

The Oregon DUI Diversion Program is an agreement you make with the court, where if successful, your case is ultimately dismissed. Call me for more information and to find out if you qualify.

DUI Defense Attorney

I will aggressively defend

your drivers license in the

courtroom and with the DMV

If you get a DUI in Portland or anywhere in Oregon, you will have 10 days from the arrest to request a hearing with the Oregon DMV or your license will automatically be suspended. I will defend your ability to drive and do my best to protect your driver’s license to keep you on the road. It is critical that we do not miss this deadline to demand the hearing.

Make sure you take action now to protect your rights and your license by contacting an attorney with experience. In the state of Oregon, you have to fight for both your license and your innocence. At my law firm, I’m prepared to represent you on both of these accounts.

The law provides that

field sobriety tests are only admissible

in court if performed according to NHTSA standards.

I will carefully examine the details surrounding the arrest to make sure that proper procedures were adhered to. Failing any of these tests may indicate that a person is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, but it also may not. Many other factors can prevent a person from passing these tests, including disability, so they’re not foolproof.

During our consultation, we will begin to examine the facts surrounding your arrest and build your defense from there.



Our DUI Defense Process

Begin fighting your DUI charges today with a simple conversation. You will be glad you talked with me.


Communication is important to me, just as it is to you in your DUII/DUI case. We’ll start with a free phone consultation. Contact me online or give me a call. Once we have an appointment, we’ll talk about the details of your specific case and determine if I’m the Portland attorney that is the right fit for you.


I understand that each case is unique. Whether this is your first offense, or you’ve been through this before, you must have legal representation before you give any details to the police or the prosecution. You need a defense attorney on your side from the beginning. As one of the highest-rated Portland, Oregon, attorneys, I will be here for you from start to finish.


First, I will get all the police reports and discovery from the prosecutor. Next, I will review all the evidence looking for all possible defenses and technicalities. Then I will advise you on the best course of action. If necessary, I will prepare your case for trial, and at the same time, I will look at all avenues of resolving your case through negotiation or dismissal.

Amanda L.

I hired Andy in January of 2019 after I had been charged with a DUI and Reckless Driving. He was my choice because he was the only lawyer I called who actually asked how I was doing rather than just skipping to cost and procedure. I was not disappointed. Andy is caring and compassionate, and he quickly responded to any and all questions I had. He was able to help me enter Diversion and obtained a plea deal for my reckless driving charge. I would definitely recommend Andy to anyone who is going through this hard time. Thanks, Andy."

Chuck M.

Andy is a fantastic DUI attorney. His knowledge of Oregon DUI Laws, courtroom strategy, and negotiating skills are exceptional. He helped me prevail in what I thought was an unwinnable situation. Great Job!! Andy. Thanks again.

Jessica M.

Andy really takes care of you. After making the poor decision to drink and drive and race another car on a Friday night on HWY 26 going 105mph on 60mph road, I was facing a serious Reckless Driving offense, DUI, and a criminal speeding ticket. I lost my job because these offenses happened in a company vehicle, and potentially ruined my career in the industry I was working. Lucky for me I hired Andy, and because of his long-term relationships, he was able to get the prosecutor to drop my Reckless driving charge and massive speeding ticket as well as enter me into the DUI Diversion program. This has saved my background check for future employment and housing applications! Thanks, Andy, you saved my future.

Ahmad A.

I would highly recommend Andy Green to anybody who's having legal troubles. I was recommended by a friend about Andy. My case was very intense and stressful, but andy and his colleague made me confident through the whole process. He was available to communicate with me anytime. I had over 20 charges, while I was on probation. Andy was still confident to go through a judge trial instead of a jury trail to get me my freedom. Also, Andy's firm was very reasonable to the prices.


Do I need a lawyer for a first DUI charge in Oregon?

Being arrested and charged for your first DUI is terrifying. Each state is different in handling drunk driving cases, specifically the laws and procedures surrounding implied consent laws, driver’s license suspensions, diversion programs, convictions, fines and penalties.  If you have been recently arrested for driving under the influence in the state of Oregon, you may […]

DUIs & Background Checks in Oregon: How does it affect employment?

A conviction for driving under the influence in Oregon, or any other state for that matter, affects everything from insurance premiums to employment.  In Oregon, a DUI conviction remains on a record forever and will result in more serious consequences if you are charged with another crime in the future.  Most employment applications in 2021 […]


How do I choose the right DUI attorney?

The first step is finding a DUI attorney who specializes in handling DUI cases like yours. An appropriate level of experience is critical when selecting an attorney to represent you. Do you feel comfortable with the attorney and is he going to provide you with good communication? You want an attorney who keeps you informed throughout the case. You should also make sure that the attorney you are speaking with initially is going to be the attorney that handles your case. Some Portland DUI firms have an attorney that handles sales, but once hired, you’re passed off to another attorney.

Do I even need a lawyer if I get a DUI?

The biggest mistake most people make after being arrested is not seeking the advice of a qualified DUI attorney. Depending on the circumstances, a criminal conviction on your record can follow someone for the rest of their life. A qualified attorney can not only get your charges and fines reduced but depending on the situation can have your case dismissed entirely. Being charged with a crime is a terrifying experience. A good lawyer will take a lot of the fear out the process by explaining what to expect and preparing you for court.

What are the penalties of a DUI in Portland, Oregon?

Depending on whether or not you have been convicted of a previous DUI charge in Portland or any other county in Oregon the penalties if convicted can vary. Some of the dui penalties include:

  • Fines, Court costs and additional costs
  • You will need to install an interlock ignition device (IID) on your vehicle
  • Suspended License
  • Completion of alcohol or drug abuse treatment program
  • Community service and impact treatment sessions
  • Probation
  • Jail time
Do I have to go to court if I hire a DUI Attorney?

Most likely you will have to make at least one court appearance. Although, an experienced attorney can make some appearances on your behalf and get other appearances waived. Typically when you hire a private DUI attorney you will have fewer court appearances than you would on your own or with a public defender.

How can a Lawyer help me with a DUI Case?

There are two types of cases. A DMV suspension case and a DUI criminal case with the courts. A qualified DUI attorney, like Andy Green, will challenge your license suspension with the DMV as well as build a strong foundation for the upcoming criminal case. At the very least, having a good attorney will make the process smoother and less stressful.
