A Portland DUII Defense Lawyer Putting Clients And Their Families First

Perhaps you only had a few drinks, and maybe you felt perfectly fine and in control behind the wheel, but if you were pulled over by the police and found to be over the legal limit, you will face the potential serious consequences of a DUI/DUII.

Avoid Serious Penalties Associated With DUII/DWI Charges By Working With A Local Lawyer

I am attorney Jim Halley, and I often represent people throughout Portland after they have been arrested and charged with DUI. Whether this is your first arrest or you have been charged in the past, I will use my years of experience to protect your rights, reputation and driving privileges throughout your legal proceedings.

A skilled lawyer can demand a DMV license suspension hearing, explore your eligibility for diversion, and prepare an effective defense. Common DUII issues you may be facing include:

  • Underage drinking
  • Minor in Possession
  • License suspension
  • Diversion eligibility
  • Felony charges for repeat DUII
  • Assault/Manslaughter charges for injuries or death associated with DUII charges
  • Drug DUII charges
  • Loss of Commercial Drivers License
  • Attempt to Elude / Resisting Arrest
  • Refusal to Blow Charges
  • Probation

I will investigate the details of your case and look for mitigating factors, such as improper police conduct, improperly administrated field sobriety tests, or whether illness or medication may have compromised the authorities' tests.

Act Quickly After A DUII Arrest To Retain Your Driving Privileges

After a DUII arrest, the state DMV will suspend your driving privileges (this suspension is separate from any court-mandated suspensions handed down if you are found guilty). You must demand a hearing; if one is not scheduled within 10 days of your arrest, the suspension of your license will automatically go into effect. As your lawyer, I will represent you during the DMV hearing to help preserve your driving privileges and keep you behind the wheel so you can drive your kids to school and go to work.
