Hood River DUI Attorney
There are a number of criminal defense lawyers in Oregon, but only a couple of them are a part of a dedicated DUI defense team. At Reynolds Defense Firm, our attorneys are specialized in DUIs with an impressive 100 years of experience combined. Our team are experts at deciphering police reports—some of our team have even trained police officers in writing those same reports. All in all, we have come to understand that the right team of talented individuals is what makes our clients’ experiences the absolute best.
We excel at one thing: DUI law. In fact, as dedicated specialists in our field, we have even trained fellow attorneys on DUI laws to improve their own ability to serve clients.

A lot of our clients from Hood River County commonly ask us, “What is a DMV Hearing?” If you have never been arrested for a DUI, then you are likely unaware that the DMV has it’s own hearing process to determine whether or not (and for how long) your license will be suspended for. This process is also called the “implied consent” process. When you are arrested, the arresting officer will hand you the “Implied Consent Combined Report (ICCR)—usually a long yellow piece of paper that might double as a temporary driver’s license. You have 10 days from your arrest to request a hearing with the DMV. This will be your chance to contest the suspension of your license.
Because the window is such a tight one, and being arrested can cause a lot of stress and hardship, this window can pass without you evening noticing. As you are deciding what attorney is the right fit for you, consider this 10-day window. Reynolds Defense Firms attorney’s can make sure you don’t miss this opportunity to defend yourself and contest your license suspension with the DMV. The sooner you make your decision on representation, the better your chances are at not missing this DMV window. Reynolds Defense Firm might not be the best fit for you, but if you are a good person facing a DUI charge and possible license suspension, we might be what you are looking for.

We urge you to consider hiring representation, as Hood River takes DUI charges seriously. If you are deemed ineligible for Diversion, or go to trial without a DUI lawyer, you can face harsh consequences including jail time. Reynolds Defense Firm has represented many clients where little to no jail time was successfully negotiated. While outcomes vary because every case is different, with its own set of facts, Reynolds Defense Firm will work hard to minimize the legal ramifications against you.

While many of our clients may not find abstaining from alcohol to be difficult, it is important to remember that the court sets avoiding alcohol as a condition of your DUI conviction. Therefore, we put together a guide to help with finding fun, social activities in Hood River County that do not revolve around alcohol.The Columbia River Gorge
It would be impossible to write a list of fun activities to do in Hood River County without first mentioning the Gorge. If you love to be outdoors, then this is the right county for you to be in. You can hike on any number of trails from easy, moderate, to difficult; go camping, wind surfing, mountain biking, fishing (with the proper license!), and much more! The Travel Oregon website lists all these activities, and more, as well as the best places to go on the Gorge for each.Mt. Hood
Mt. Hood is another icon of the region, and offers year-round attractions! Of course there are the usual winter sports like skiing, snowboarding, and sledding, but the warmer months offer camping, hiking, fishing, disc golf, and sliding down the mountain at Skii Bowl! And while it might be a little pricey, the Timberline Lodge is a definite bucket list item, especially if you are a fan of “The Shining”. Located 6,000 feet up on Mt Hood, you can reach it by taking Timberline Road in Government Camp.Parkdale
If you’re from the area, you are likely aware of this farming community in the Columbia River Gorge called Parkdale. If you’re into photography, especially landscape photography, Parkdale is the place for you to go. It has rolling hills, mountain views, orchards, and the most picturesque scenery that will be perfect for your photography portfolio. If you’re not a photographer, there are other activities for you to find. In June/July you can go to Lavander Valley Farms and learn all about the 10 varieties of Lavander harvested there. You can explore a 7,000 year old lava flow, with the best access being from the Laurance Lake Road. If all these activities have made you hungry, you grab a bite at the Apple Valley BBQ. This community is located along the Mt. Hood Scenic Byway (Highway 35).
