I was recently charged with a dui. I just received a letter from the DMV that they are not suspending my license. Due to the fact that on the ticket the officer did not check a box if I passed, failed or denied the breath test. My ticket also doesn't show my blood alcohol level. Not sure what I should do next.
You should immediately set an office conference with a well-respected DUII lawyer. The initial conference is often free,...

My stepdaughter was in an accident. She got drunk, took a car without permission, with a passenger & wrecked the car into school property. We live in a small town & the officer on scene did not to file a report. He felt she had learned her lesson. Now, 2 years later, the insurance company has demanded a police report so they have charged her with a smaller offense of felony unauthorized use of a vehicle. Trying to avoid the DUI charge. If she pleads not guilty, there will be a trial & investigation and she could be charged with several more things. What happens if she pleads no contest or guilty?
Much more information is needed, but a local criminal lawyer should be retained to fight any charge.
Hi, I was recently pulled over and had a breathalyzer test, I came out .08 bac. Now on the sheet it has a control sample that came out .08 and the expected value was a .085, basically saying the machine was off by .005, do you think that would hold up in court?
That's actually an acceptable number for the control and doesn't mean the machine was off. It actually, weird as it may...
If you have a California license and get a DUI in Oregon will your California license get suspended?
The driver only has a license in California and wants to know if a DUI on their Oregon driving record will cause a suspension of their California license??
Yes. It would be incredibly unlikely that the Oregon DMV would fail to send a notice of suspension to any states...

I travel back and forth from CA to OR weekly for business.
Yes you can enter Diversion in Oregon if you qualify. The real issue is where you do the alcohol treatment. Oregon is...
I was convicted of 2 DUIs in another state. I then received my 3rd/last DUI conviction here in Oregon a little over a year ago. I was young, dumb, and had no idea what exactly I was doing and how this would affect my life... It has been a tough lesson and I know now that I am powerless over alcohol. However, since then I have completely changed; I have over come many obstacles, gained full time employment, completed rehab with many accolades, have been drug and alcohol free since my last conviction, I'm almost debt free, completed the 12-steps etc etc... the promises are true. I'm know for sure that I could get dozens of witnesses (family, friends, coworkers, acquaintances etc...) to testify on my behalf. It seems to be an extraordinary and somewhat unfortunate situation. My question is... How soon do you think that it is possible for someone in a unique situation like this to get his license back? and/or at least get the felony expunged or reduced?
As you approach the 10-year mark from your Oregon conviction, hire a good DUII lawyer to help you with a petition for...
