Coronavirus and the Courts - Frequently Asked Questions

If you or a loved has been arrested for a DUI, please click here for answers to your questions about your case during COVID-19.

If you or a loved one has been arrested for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (known as DUI or DUII), there are probably hundreds of questions running through your mind right now. While you can find answers to some of your questions here, please remember that, at the end of the day, a website can never be a good substitute for talking to a DUI attorney who specializes in Oregon's laws. I'm proud to say that the Reynolds Defense Firm is of one of the top DUI law firms in Oregon. We don't charge anything for our first phone conversation, so please give us a call to talk through your situation.

"But my case is so straightforward, and I need to know what will happen to m..." I understand that feeling, and that's why I've put answers to all these frequently asked questions together for you here! But let me make a suggestion - use this site for general information and to get a feel for who we are as a law firm, but please don't try to diagnose your legal problems this way.

I think most of us have probably tried to diagnose a medical problem we were experiencing by going to Web MD or a similar site - at least I know that I tried that once when my son was a little boy. In doing so, I scared the heck out of myself, and I learned some life lessons in the process. For me, I learned that 1) despite all my education and life experiences, I'm not a doctor, 2) 'book learning' is fine, but it doesn't hold a candle to actual, hands-on experience, and 3) for me, when something important is on the line, I need to find an expert I can trust to help me. While of course medicine and law are different, I think the logic applies to both - please don't rely on some version of 'Legal MD' for answers - give us a call to talk this through.

Let me share one last thought on this - while some law firm websites have accurate information, some sites do not (whether because the laws have changed or because the information was just plain incorrect to begin with), and worse yet, some sites have partial information that paints a worse or better picture than reality. My suggestion is that you use the web to research lawyers that specialize in Oregon DUI defense to get a feel for what type of firm you want to work with, and then pick up the phone and call those firms. Your legal case can have a huge impact on your life, your family, your job and your future, it's important that you speak with someone who knows and understands the legal nuances that are specific to you.

We do one thing, and we do it very well. We specialize in representing good people facing DUI or other criminal charges. Our team at Reynolds Defense Firm talks to a lot of good people who have been arrested. Some of them hire us, some of them hire someone else, but our goal is that by the end of the conversation, every person we talk with is better off than he or she was before they called us. During these conversations, we answer a lot of questions - below are general answers to some of the questions that we hear most often.

If you need help, please call us for a free phone consultation. Of course I hope that leads to us working together, but regardless, you will get straightforward answers to your questions to help you sleep easier tonight.

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.
