Do You Need an Experienced DUI Defense Attorney in Yamhill?
DUI charges can carry serious penalties and you must act quickly to get the best outcome. A good DUI lawyer can effectively fight your case. So, let me introduce myself: I am Andy Green, Oregon DUI Lawyer based in Portland.
Having worked in the Multnomah County district attorneys office, I have the necessary criminal justice background to make sure that your DUI citation or arrest is defended effectively and swiftly. I can anticipate the legal tactics of DUI prosecutors and evaluate where the prosecution’s case is not airtight, minimizing penalties and even achieving acquittal where possible.
How Yamhill County DUIs Work
It is easy to be pulled over for driving under the influence, or DUI. You are allowed a legal amount of blood alcohol content (BAC) but exceeding the legal limit is not difficult and can happen accidentally. The repercussions you face will depend in part on whether it is your first offense, exactly how high your BAC level was at the time of testing and whether you had children in the car with you.
Penalties can be as minute as a small fine but if you are a repeat offender caught significantly over the limit you can face jail time and lose your license for up to three years. Fines can be as steep as $10,000 too.
In avoiding these stiff penalties I will assess your case and plan a custom defense that fits the circumstances and which takes into account any slip-ups by the prosecution. The goal is to either get the charge dropped, or to significantly mitigate the penalties you face.
Nonetheless, serious DUI offenses will carry stiff penalties and in Oregon as elsewhere in the United States drivers must stay aware of the risks of driving under the influence.
