Eugene DUI Attorney

Do you need a DUI Defense Attorney in Euguene, Oregon?

Did you know that most police agencies have officers who are DUI specialists? These officers focus on a narrow part of police work – DUI investigations. They have lots of training, and they’re constantly refining their skills by being on the roads every night. Now imagine you or someone you believe in has been arrested for DUI by one of these officers. You’re facing a specialist, so which law firm would you rather have on your side – a firm that does a little bit of everything, or a firm that specializes in DUI defense? We’d choose the specialist every time. In other words, we’d choose Reynolds Defense Firm every time.

There are plenty of criminal defense lawyers, but not many who are part of a specialized DUI defense team. Now, that doesn’t mean that a lawyer on his or her own, without a team, can’t be a great lawyer, but I’ve learned that no matter how skilled you are as an attorney, you have to have the right group of talented people working with you to be able to give your absolute best to every client. If not, you’re just like a quarterback without a solid offensive line. And we know how that story plays out. Each lawyer and staff person her at Reynolds Defense Firm is an “A” player and we each understand that our individual role is essential to the overall success of our team. By working together, we are much stronger, and much more successful, than any of us can possibly be on our own. Reynolds Defense Firm – we’re solid, we’re here if you need us, and we are very good at what we do. If you or someone you believe in has been arrested, call us today, at (503) 506-2886, for your FREE consultation.

FAQ about DUI arrests in Eugene, Oregon

A common question we hear from people who contact our office after an arrest in Eugene, Oregon is “What is an Arraignment?” The court date written on your criminal citation is the date and time you need to appear in court for your DUI Arraignment. In Oregon, this is your first court appearance following your arrest. This is not your trial date, but how you are officially checked into the court system. Depending on which county you were arrested (each court has their own way of doing things), your arraignment timeline varies. Your arraignment may be the day after your arrest or could be up to 30 or more days later. At a DUI Arraignment, you’ll learn two important things. First, you will learn exactly what crimes you are charged with. Then, you will receive the next court date for your case. Your case will not be resolved at this appearance. This is an opportunity for the court, the District Attorney and you to check in to get the process started.

You are at a distinct disadvantage if you go to this court appearance alone. Going to court seems pretty straightforward when everything goes well. But the judge and the DA have done this hundreds of times already. They both know exactly what to expect and how to behave. Chances are, you don’t. And anything you say or do can affect your DUI case moving forward. This ultimately will make things even more challenging than they are already. While each county has a different court procedures that continue to vary with the charges against you, we can help. If you hire Reynolds Defense Firm to represent you, we may be able to waive your need to appear and go to this court date. In some jurisdictions, we may even be able to cancel the DUI Arraignment completely. If you don’t have a lawyer who is representing you, you must appear at your Arraignment. If you don’t, you risk a warrant being issued for your arrest. To learn more about the arraignment process, visit the Reynolds Defense Firm Client Guide Blog.

Client Reviews
These are fantastic people! I was so nervous when I first came in, but they treated me like a human, not someone who had messed up in a major way. Throughout the process, they helped me understand all the steps and supported me both with the legal stuff, but also the personal stuff. J.M.
Reynolds Defense is amazing. From the minute they pick up the phone, the entire staff is outstanding. Don't bother shopping , wondering who to get, if they are going to help or hinder, do they even care. Reynolds Defense Firm will not disappoint. T.H.
When they tell you to let them worry about your legal issue and for you to take care of yourself they really do mean it. DUIs are no joke and I was assuming the worst. And they literally saved my life, my job my home and my license. B.O.
The firm knows what they're doing, treated me with dignity during a time where I felt very overwhelmed and unsure of what I was going to do. They helped me through my entire unpleasant experience by following up with me every step of the way, ensuring I was never left in the dark. E.S.
Take it from me and don't go it alone. If your feeling sick to your stomach you are not alone. From the very first phone call they will treat you like family and have your back the whole way. You wont have one but a team of lawyers. B.W.
