Oregon Drunk Driving Defense Attorneys

In Oregon, if you are pulled over for drunk driving, and you have a Blood Alcohol Level (BAC) of .15 percent or above, you can be fined for a minimum of $2,000.

DUII arrests (driving under the influence of intoxicants) are categorized into two separate cases:

  1. A criminal case, which can include jail time, fines, mandatory rehabilitative classes, required ignition interlock devices and other consequences
  2. A DMV case, which involves possible driver’s license suspension from 90 days up to three years

There are also varying legal ramifications if you are a first-time, second-time or third-time offender or more. A first-time DUII offender is most likely facing:

  • 18-month to 24-month probation period
  • At least 48 hours in jail or at least 80 hours of community service
  • Court costs, fees and assessments totaling about $400
  • A mandatory minimum fine of $1,000
  • A court order to obey all laws during a probation period
  • A court order not to drink alcohol, or use or possess drugs
  • A court order to attend a victims’ impact panel

Multiple DUII Offenses

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.

If you are a third-time DUII offender, the offense has been elevated to a felony, which can result in a prison sentence of up to five years. Your mandatory minimum fine will increase to at least $2,000, and your driver’s license could be revoked for life.

Four or more DUII conviction cases face a prison term of at least 18 months, along with a lifetime suspension of driving privileges and mandatory fines.

Our aggressive attorneys will fight for your rights and work to win your DUI case. Plea bargains are prohibited in Oregon DUI cases, so representation from a confident, experienced attorney is crucial. With our knowledge of the most current search and seizure procedures, we are able to determine whether or not the DUI arrest was conducted according to accurate protocol and help minimize damages and charges.

Eligible for Diversion? We Can Help.

Another option is a diversion program, which requires a guilty plea of no contest, your agreement to undergo alcohol assessment and treatment, attendance at a victims’ impact panel, fees, assessments and court costs. The DUI conviction, however, will be dismissed if you successfully complete the diversion program. Several eligibility requirements apply, so it is necessary to consult with an attorney before pursuing this option.

In addition to DUII cases, we represent people charged with boating under the influence. We also seek the restoration of driving privileges for people whose licenses have been suspended.

I had the misfortune of being wrongfully accused of a crime. Like many other people, I looked to other's experiences along with online reviews for direction on who to have represent me. I quickly recognized how highly respected and experienced Mr. Jeff Napoli and his team were as they have earned a solid reputation throughout the Portland metro area. Mr. Napoli was always prompt in responding and communicating with me. Mr. Napoli went above and beyond in repeatedly contacting the district attorney's office on my behalf and equally kept me apprised of what was transpiring. Throughout this ordeal, I was also represented by Ms. Jenna Richards, a member of Mr. Napoli's team. My family and I were highly impressed. Both Jeff and Jenna conducted a thorough counter-investigation which clearly proved I was innocent of the charges against me. This was one of the most stressful periods in my life and I could not thank them enough for all of the help, attention and respect they showed me throughout this entire year-long ordeal. I highly recommend Gilroy, Napoli and Short law firm to anyone seeking top tier representation. Thank you Jeff, Jenna and their entire team!
