EXPERT DUI & CRIMINAL DEFENSE

As an experienced criminal defense attorney in Portland, I take a lot of pride in doing everything possible to help my clients reach the best possible outcome.

Whether you have been charged with DUI/DWI, reckless driving, domestic assault, drug possession or another crime, I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. I will answer your questions and put together a game plan to get started on the path to success.

Remember, just because you were charged with DUI (or DUII – driving under the influence of intoxicants - as it’s called in Portland, Oregon), does not mean you’re guilty. As we work to build your defense, we will leave no stone unturned. There are several factors that can affect the prosecution’s case, including:

  • Why law enforcement pulled you over? Did they have probable cause?
  • How did law enforcement determine that you were over the legal limit to drive? Did they make any mistakes in the implementation or analysis of their blood alcohol content test?
  • Were any of your rights violated during the arrest?
  • What is the evidence they have against you? Is it enough to prove your guilt? Or can we argue that you are innocent?

Call now to protect your reputation and future

“I’LL TAKE YOUR CASE PERSONALLY, I WON’T PASS YOU OFF TO A YOUNGER ASSOCIATE”

Along with the initial shock of being charged with a crime, you could be experiencing a lot of other emotions, too. Stress, embarrassment, worry, and fear of the future are all common, and I understand how you feel. My law firm can help you ease this stress as we build your case and get ready to represent you in court.

You don’t have to feel helpless. The right Portland DUI lawyer will take control of the situation so that you can get your life back on track.

dui lawyer in Portland Oregon

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

In the courtroom

I will aggressively

defend your drivers license

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 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.

FAQS

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.
