Beaverton DUI Diversion Lawyer


If you have been accused of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (commonly referred to as DUI, DUII, or DWI) you may be eligible for the DUI diversion program. Unlike many Beaverton DUI lawyers we don’t just help you get into the diversion program, we help you to understand it and stick with you throughout the entire process to ensure the program is successfully completed. This will result in the charges against you being dismissed!

DUI can be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the specific circumstances of your case, and your criminal history. This should always be discussed in detail with your DUI lawyer prior to making any decisions about your case.

There are quite a few commitments a person accused of a DUI must make to successfully complete the diversion program. Paying the entry fees and completing the victim impact panel are the easy parts. There is also a drug & alcohol evaluation, classes, urinalysis testing, ignition interlock device requirements, and many other issues that can create problems for the DUI diversion participant. 

A basic outline of the commitments are as follows: 1) Paying the entry fees, 2) Completing a substance abuse evaluation and the recommended treatment, 3) Attending the victims impact panel, 4) Abstaining from alcohol/drugs during the entire diversion period, and 5) Installing an ignition Interlock device during the entire diversion period.

Most problems during the diversion period arise from the drug & alcohol classes. After your evaluation (which they will likely require you to give you a UA at) you will be required to take classes. These classes generally last about twelve to sixteen weeks, during which, you will be required to give random UA’s. After you are finished with the classes, many evaluators ask you to come back for what is commonly called an “exit interview”, but be aware that you may be required to give one last UA.  This has been an ongoing problem over the years, and the best way to fight this is to make sure you are educated and prepared.

Many times people who are eligible for the DUI diversion program choose to enter the program without the help of a DUI lawyer. Some people are successful, many are not. It is important to hire an attorney who is familiar with the law, and it is equally important to hire an attorney that is familiar with the court where you are cited appear, the prosecutor in charge of your case, and the judge who will hear your case. This type of knowledge cannot be read; it is learned through experience.

Remember: you only have 10 days to request an implied consent (DMV) hearing following your Beaverton DUI arrest.

What Jared's Clients Say 

"Jared was all I could ever ask for in an attorney. He was able to bring my case to what I believe was the best possible resolution. Throughout what has been the hardest time of my life, he was kind, compassionate and understanding of the difficulties facing me. He made everything a little less scary and helped to put everything into perspective for me. I hope to never have to call him again, but I will be recommending him to anyone in need of legal aid in Clackamas county"

"Jared successfully helped me with an old case that was never settled. I hired him immediately after meeting him because he showed a genuine care and interest into finding the best possible outcome for me. He was honest and upfront with all of the outcomes to prepare me for anything, he responded promptly to all of my emails and phone calls, and he was professional yet personable the entire time. I recommend Jared because he not only settled my case successfully, he worked with me and made sure that I was fully prepared and taken care of. Thank you again!"

"Jared was recommended to me and I'm glad I used his help. No nickle and dimes every time something came up he was very transparent with the process and helped make me feel at ease as we went through my case. The case was dropped and we are now getting it expunged from my record."

"Highly satisfied with my experience. Jared was a thorough professional. He educated me on what to expect, what the likely outcome would be and then he achieved it! I would highly recommend Jared Justice to anyone needing a criminal defense attorney. Everything turned out better then I had expected. Thanks again!"
