DUI Law in the Courts Today


Why you need an expert DUI defense attorney


Drunk driving, DUI or DUII in Oregon, or driving under the influence of intoxicants, is among the most commonly cited offenses in the criminal justice system today. Judges are used to seeing DUI offenders and having persons injured by DUI drivers in their courtrooms. Jurors have heard countless news stories reporting fatal and near fatal automobile accidents involving collisions by DUI drivers. DUI laws have gotten much stricter and now carry mandatory minimum sentences in Oregon.


Defense lawyers have always believed that DUI cases are some of the most difficult to defend, because they require a much deeper knowledge of the interplay between science and law than do most felony cases, and provide fewer applicable constitutional protections to persons accused. And, because most jurors and judges have deeply felt and pre-existing beliefs about DUI driving.


Yet some people charged with DUI still go into a courtroom without an expert DUI defense attorney by their side. Why? These people just do not understand what they are facing in court when charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants. Or, they are simply too poor to do anything to control their fate.


Hiring the best DUI attorney you can find, an expert DUI lawyer, can be a very wise financial investment. The long term costs of a drunk driving conviction are cumulative and huge. Interference in employment opportunities and greatly increased insurance premiums are just the tip of the iceberg. Other opportunities you might not even think of, like travel to Canada, can be jeopardized by a DUI conviction.


DUI cases can be defended and dismissed. But, you must avail yourself of expert legal counsel, such as defense attorneys Bart Herron and Edward LeClaire. Call Portland's expert DUI defense team at Herron Law now.
