Have you been arrested or cited for a DUI? Hire one of Eugene’s best DUI lawyers.

Numerous high profile cases have led Oregon to pass some of the toughest drunk driving laws in the country. Even for first-time offenders who are offered diversion (a program that can result in the dismissal of all charges), the consequences can be very serious, and repeat offenders can lose their driving privileges for life. Whether you have been charged with misdemeanor DUI, felony DUI, vehicular assault,  or other related offense, it is important to hire an experienced defense lawyer who knows the ins and outs of the system. Ms. Sammons has been handling DUIs since 2004, lectures on the subject, and is widely regarded as one of Eugene’s top DUI practitioners.

She and fellow DUI attorney Max Miizejewski recently co-authored Chapter 2 of the Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association 2020 Edition of the DUII Notebook: A Comprehensive Guide to Your DUII Case. A link to this publication can be found here.
