Arrested for DUI? It Can Happen to Anyone
Eugene, Oregon, Drunk Driving Defense Attorney
In Oregon, driving after you have consumed alcoholic beverages is only illegal if you have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or more — OR if you are deemed physically or mentally "impaired." What does "impaired" mean? In many cases, it means whatever the arresting officer claims it to mean. In other words, it means you may be charged with DUII based on subjective police evidence.
Our goal is to WIN for our clients. Contact us.
At David A. Hill, Attorney at Law, we have been defending people charged with drunk driving in the Eugene area and throughout Oregon for over 30 years. In Oregon, driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII), known in other states as driving while intoxicated (DWI), or driving under the influence (DUI) are serious criminal charges. Consequences for a conviction can include jail time, significant court fines and fees, the loss of your driving privileges and years of astronomical insurance premiums.
For first-time drunk driving offenders, placement in a diversion program is a realistic option under most circumstances. If you complete such a program successfully, you are able to avoid conviction and the harsh consequences that follow. We have been able to secure diversion program placements for many of our DUII clients.
If this is not your first drunk driving arrest, a more aggressive defense on grounds such as lack of probable cause, illegal search and seizure, or improper field sobriety, Breathalyzer and blood testing procedures may be called for. In any case, that is what our firm can provide.

Criminal defense lawyer David A. Hill has a strong understanding of the modern scientific techniques used in drunk driving cases.
