DUII Laws in Oregon are becoming increasingly severe. A DUII charge today can significantly impact you or your child's future; from worsening employment prospects, to increased costs of owning and maintaining a vehicle. If you have been charged with a DUII you should get an attorney as soon as possible.
It is important to understand at the outset that if you were charged with a DUII and you violated the Oregon Implied Consent Law (by either blowing over .08% alcohol or refusing to the Breath test) then there are two State agencies currently taking action adverse to your interests; (1) The Oregon DMV, (2) and the Court where your DUII citation was filed.
The Oregon DMV: Your driving privileges may be at risk, and your window for protecting those privileges closes very quickly. You have 10 days from the implied consent failure to request a hearing through the DMV. If you plan to hire an attorney to represent you then contact one as soon as possible so that the attorney can help you through the DMV hearing. If you plan to represent yourself then you can request a DMV hearing here. Only an attorney meticulously reviewing your case will be able to advise you about how to protect your driving privileges and how to move forward.
The Court: Your DUII citation may have been filed in a Justice court, a Municipal court or a Circuit Court depending on where the offense occurred and the court and police policies in that area. Only an attorney licensed in Oregon can determine how to move forward with your DUII charge effectively. Call (541)HUNKING for a DUII consultation.
