Clackamas County DUI Diversion Attorney
If you have been accused of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUI), you may be eligible for the DUI diversion program. To qualify for this program, there are many criteria that you must meet and numerous commitments you must make and fulfill. Completing these diversion requirements ensures that your DUI does not go on your record as a misdemeanor conviction.
This may seem simple enough, but many things can go wrong—that is why this firm represents individuals throughout the entire diversion period. Many DUI lawyers just help their clients enter into the diversion program, and give them a basic understanding of what to expect. We pride ourselves on helping our clients fully understand what to expect, where to go, and what to do to make sure the DUI diversion program is successfully completed and the case is dismissed. Hiring this firm ensures that you will have a Clackamas County DUI lawyer representing you throughout the entire diversion process.
We understand that this program takes a very long time, and incidents may occur while you are participating in diversion. One of the most common incidents is being caught for driving while suspended as a result of your breath test failure or refusal. If this happens, it is extremely important to contact your DUI lawyer immediately. Involving an attorney immediately helps increase the potential for violation treatment (instead of misdemeanor treatment) in many cases. Often times a DUI lawyer will also be able to work with the prosecution to ensure a driving while suspended issue will not affect your diversion.
Another common scenario that happens is a “show cause” hearing. This means that you will need to come back to court for a hearing on whether or not a violation of the terms of the diversion agreement has occurred. These can happen for many different reasons: money owed, a positive UA, not attending the victim impact panel, or if your ignition interlock device registers that you have been drinking.
Some of the most common issues with diversion arise from not being able to successfully complete the drug and alcohol classes. Completing the classes successfully can be extremely burdensome. There are random urinalysis tests, a time commitment, and they can be quite costly. Having a Clackamas County DUI lawyer to help guide you can alleviate the uncertainty of this program. For over a decade, we have helped guide our clientele to programs that work for them, their needs, and their schedules.
If you are facing a DUI charge in Clackamas County, don’t hesitate to contact an attorney. Every minute counts when it comes to creating a strong case for you. The first 10-days are incredibly important because a request can be filed for a DMV (implied-consent) hearing—this must be done within that narrow time.
We deal with many different kinds of criminal allegations, DUI diversion issues, and diversion eligibility issues. Contact us today for help with your Clackamas County DUI matter.
