Getting charged with Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII) is scary. The thought of dealing with the courts or serving jail time can be daunting. A DUII is a very serious criminal charge that could lead to hefty fines, loss of driving privileges and even jail time.
When charged with a DUII in Central Oregon, you not only have to go up against the courts, but you also have to go to a DMV hearing regarding your driver’s license. While lawyers can seem expensive, the money that they can potentially save you in the long run will outweigh your legal fees.
If you have factors that impacted your DUII such as a high BAC, injuries, death or a criminal record, a lawyer shouldn’t even be a question. Oftentimes, lawyers can offer a plea bargain or try to reduce your sentence.
If your DUII is straightforward, a lawyer can still be beneficial in getting you enrolled in the Diversion Program, walking you through your IID (Ignition Interlock Device), and seeing out your DUII until the end.
The largest benefit to having a DUII lawyer is that they are professionals. They can walk you through this very confusing process with the feeling of comfort. They spend their days in the courtroom and know what to look for and what to say.
