Lane County DUI Attorney
Established in January of 1851, Lane County was created from the southern part of Linn County and the eastern part of Benton county. It is one of two Oregon Counties that extend from the Pacific Ocean to the cascades, and features a portion of the Umpqua National Forest. Over 350,000 residents call Lane County home, and it is the fourth most populous county in the state of Oregon.
While Eugene is the largest city and serves as the County Seat, other popular areas include Springfield, Cottage Grove, Florence and Junction City. The Lane County Circuit Courthouse is in Eugene, so if your citation directs you to this courthouse, make sure you make proper arrangements to appear as required. Lane County Circuit Court has a program for first-time DUI convictions, so if you have been charged with a DUI (sometimes referred to as a DUII), ask your attorney about participating in the Drug Court program. Commonly referred to as diversion, the goal of the Lane County Drug Court program is to provide low level offenders with the opportunity to improve their lives. Program participants who do all that is required by the court within one year can avoid jail sentences, have probation terminated early, and even have drug possession charges dismissed.
Reynolds Defense Firm has represented several clients where diversion from jail was successfully negotiated. We urge you to consider hiring representation, as Lane County 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. If your citation directs you to appear at the Lane County Circuit Court, please go to:
125 E 8th Ave.
Eugene, Oregon 97401
