Oregon is very tough on drunk drivers. 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, vehicular homicide, reckless driving, or driving with a suspended license (DWS), it is important to hire an experienced defense lawyer who knows what legal and factual weaknesses to look for in a prosecutor’s case.
The expense of retaining an experienced DUI lawyer can sometimes feel like a part of the punishment, but Ms. Sammons is cost effective. She keeps her overhead low so she can charge reasonable hourly rates, and works hard to be as efficient as possible.
