If you are charged and convicted with a DUI (sometimes referred to as a DUII) for the first time, Deschutes county has a diversion program that you may be eligible for. Please be advised that eligibility for diversion varies, and if you are deemed ineligible or decide to move forward and go to trial without the help of a lawyer, the chances of facing heavy fines and jailtime increases significantly. The Deschutes County Courthouse is in the county seat of Bend, Oregon. The courtrooms and the jury assembly room are located in this building. Please be advised that it is your responsibility to appear in court and arrive on time, so if your citation directs you to appear at the Deschutes County Courthouse, please go to:

If you are facing DUI charges or other related criminal offenses, you need the assistance of an impeccable and competent DUI attorney. We have over 50 years of combined experience, and understand how a prosecutor will react in most given situations because we do one thing, and we do it well. We represent good people facing DUI charges.
Our team of DUI lawyers know how to read in between the lines of police reports because we’ve trained officers on writing reports. We even have a DUI lawyer with first-hand judicial experience of presiding over and ruling on DUI cases and DMV Implied Consent license hearings. Most importantly, we understand how to use this knowledge to help the people we represent.
While it is legal to represent yourself in court, it is a frequent and devastating mistake because a conviction has such a great impact on your future. While there are penalties such as costly fines and jail time that you can face, there are other penalties that last far beyond the courtroom. Those consequences can lead to barriers to employment, destroyed relationships with friends and family members, road blocks to finding housing, and other problems. Once you obtain legal counsel from a competent DUI attorney, you case can be strengthened which ultimately minimizes devastating negative consequences. While we prefer you hire our team of DUI lawyers, even if you hire another firm, make sure you obtain the services from a professional who specializes in DUI laws and has a solid relationship with members of the court in Linn County.
