Molalla DUII Attorney
Whether the incident happens in Molalla, or anywhere else, being stopped and investigated for DUII is an extremely stressful situation—and rarely a pleasant experience. We are here to help you through this situation.
If you are arrested in the city of Molalla, or the outskirts of Molalla, you will likely to be taken to the Clackamas County jail and be required to appear in Clackamas County Circuit Court at a later date. Although many municipal courts hear DUII charges, Molalla Municipal Court is not one of the Municipalities that handles these cases. Rather, the case is heard at Clackamas County Circuit Court. It is important to be aware of where you need to appear for your court date. Failure to appear in the proper court at the proper time can result in a warrant being issued. Consulting with and hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney can help you understand exactly what your obligations are, and what to expect at your initial court appearance.
What should I do when charged with a DUII?
If you are facing a DUII charge, don’t hesitate to contact a Molalla DUII attorney immediately. 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. A DMV hearing is one of the strongest tools that we have in preparing your DUII defense. Keep in mind that these hearings are separate from the criminal charges that you must appear for in court.
