Most Oregon City/Gladstone DUI Diversion attorneys can help you enter the diversion program. But this program can be very intensive and incredibly frustrating.

It has been an ongoing trend over the past few years for the Oregon City and Gladstone area prosecutors to object to a person trying to enter the DUI diversion program. There are many reasons that a prosecutor will object to a petitioner’s eligibility, some of which may be inaccurate. A couple of common reasons the prosecution will object are if you had a child in the car, or if you have an inordinately high blood-alcohol level. This is one of the many reasons why it is crucial to have an experienced Oregon City/Gladstone DUI diversion attorney fighting for you every step of the way.
Many times people who are eligible for the DUI diversion program choose to enter the program without the help of an attorney. 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.
