Successful DUII Attorney Protecting the Rights of Drivers
We all know drinking and driving is dangerous and illegal. Many good and responsible people have been charged with DUII and have moved on with their lives. If you are facing a DUII charge, Pendleton Law, LLC can help.
The Criminal & Civil Processes
When you are charged with a DUII, you will have to face both criminal and administrative penalties simultaneously. During the criminal process, the court will have to determine if your actions warrant jail time, community service, fines and alcohol treatment. Additionally, the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will also decide whether or not your license will be suspended, and if so, for how long and under what conditions you’ll be able to get it back. We will represent you during both processes to fight for your rights and driving privileges.
Time is of the Essence
If you have been cited for a DUII, you must act quickly in order to retain your driving privileges. After a DUII report is submitted to the DMV, you only have 10 days to request an administrative hearing before your license is automatically suspended. Responding promptly will show the DMV and prosecutors that you understand what has happened and are actively working to correct the situation. Retaining a criminal defense attorney further demonstrates your respect for the magnitude of your situation.
