The Clackamas county of Oregon is considered as one of the most populous and largest counties in the state. There are about 400,000 people who call Clackamas county as their home and while the total number of people living in the area makes the county large, it is still considered quite rural when compared to other counties in the country.
Since Clackamas county isn’t very metropolitan, there are few differences between the legal system and how law enforcement works within the county line. It can be confusing for both new and old residents, but with a little guidance from a trusted Clackamas DUI attorney, navigating through the legal proceedings for a DUI arrest will not be as complicated as it seems.

Yes, it is possible to go through the court proceedings without hiring a lawyer, but it is difficult and also very confusing. Not only are there legal terms that the inexperienced defendant might not understand, but there are also instances where the lack of professional defense makes a person weak in the eyes of the court.
While Clackamas County residents might be able to save some money by opting out of hiring a lawyer to defend their case, they can risk staining their arrest record or even being wrongfully charged for a crime that they did not commit. All this is avoidable when a representative from the Gilroy Napoli Short Law Firm is working the case with you.
For a second DUII, you are facing an increased mandatory minimum fine of $1,500 and an extended driver's license suspension of up to three years.
The local justice system and law enforcement rules can vary depending on the city or county of arrest. Not all lawyers are well-versed in DUI charges brought up locally, especially if they are not familiar with the Clackamas county arrest and legal system. It is important for those charged with a DUI to only hire a Clackamas DUI attorney who isn’t just experienced with handling drunk driving cases but are also locals.
Only those who understand the local Clackamas laws can properly defend their clients without risking their reputation and possibly even freedom. Local lawyers can help draft a deal for first time DUI offenders to lessen their charges and even resolve the arrest by using the DUI Diversion Program that is offered by the state or Oregon.
Not all lawyers will know about the Diversion Program so calling the right lawyer matters a great deal, especially for first-time offenders who want to avoid expensive fines, permanent convictions, license suspension, and most of all jail time.
