Linn County DUI Attorney
Located in the heart of the Willamette Valley, Linn County has a total area of 2,309 square miles and a population of over 117,000 residents. Originally formed from the southern portion of what is now Marion County, Linn County functioned as a separate area once the boundaries were established in 1847, and later altered with the creation of Lane County and Wasco County.
Major cities in Linn County include Albany (county seat), Lebanon, and Sweet Home. Albany, however, is the host for the Linn County Circuit Court, and the Linn County Drug Treatment Court Program. While the county circuit court is where all defendants must appear for DUI charges (sometimes referred to as DUII charges), participating in the drug treatment court program is optional, and your attorney can negotiate the terms on your behalf. Frequently referred to as diversion, the Linn County Drug Treatment Court Program is designed to give low level offenders an opportunity to improve their life. All eligible persons who choose to participate can have probation terminated early, avoid jail sentences or have their drug possession charges dismissed upon completion.
Reynolds Defense Firm has negotiated several cases where diversion from jail is an option. Our team of DUI lawyers understand how a prosecutor will react in most situations given their experience. Between our unique skill set and established relationships with members of the court in Linn County, it strengthens the possibility of our clients avoiding jail time. Please be advised that Linn County takes DUI charges very seriously. Showing up to court on time is mandatory and ultimately your responsibility regardless of your chosen representation. If your citation directs you to appear at the Linn County Circuit Court, please go to:
300 Fourth Avenue SW
Albany, OR 97321
If you are facing a DUI or other related criminal charges, you need the assistance of an impeccable and competent DUI lawyer. Our team of attorneys know how to read in between the lines of police reports because we’ve trained officers on writing reports. We even have a 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. There are penalties such as costly fines and jail time, but there are other disadvantages that last far beyond the courtroom. Those consequences can lead to barriers to employment, destroyed relationships with friends and family members, road blocks to securing housing, and other problems. By obtaining legal counsel from qualified DUI attorneys quickly, your case can be strengthened which helps 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 those who work in Linn County law courts.
