Bend DUII Defense Lawyer

Get Help for Oregon DUII Charges: (541) 238-9210

DUIIs are one of the most common charges that you can face, but when you do find yourself accused of driving under the influence, it's important that you act fast to secure focused and supportive legal representation from our Bend criminal defense attorney.

Common Penalties for DUII Charges in Bend, Oregon:

  • First offense: 48 hours to a year in jail, ID installation, between $1,000-$2,000 in fines, and license suspension of one year.
  • Second offense: Up to a year in jail, ID installation, between $2,000-$10,000 in fines, and license suspension of three years.
  • Third offense: As much as five years in prison, between $2,000-$10,000 in fines, and the potentially permanent loss of your license.
  • Refusal to take a chemical test can result in $1,000 fines and a license suspension of three years for a third offense.

These are serious charges that you can face and the punishment doesn’t always fit the crime. Under Ballot Measure 73, there are also mandatory minimum sentences in some cases of repeat DUIIs. There are available options to protect you. One of these is the DUII Diversion Program and through this option it may be possible to have your DUII dismissed at the end of the year.

While a DUII is a charge that many people find themselves dealing with, the penalties you may suffer can still be severe. If someone was killed while you were allegedly under the influence, you can also face increasingly high penalties for manslaughter charges.

Client Reviews & Testimonials

  • I would highly recommend Mr. Baxter.

    “Mr. Baxter was very helpful and very knowledgeable concerning the specifics of my case. He essentially streamlined the court process for me, which allowed me to focus on the end details of my case, rather than worry about what possible outcomes there could be. Instead of ending up with two convictions, I was able to enroll in the diversion program, take traffic school, and pay the fines. We all make mistakes, and I was very glad that Mr. Baxter was there to help me with my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Baxter.”

  • DUI, Reckless, and Interfering Defense

    “I selected Mr. Baxter to defend me against charges stemming from a DUI arrest. In addition to the DUI, I was also charged with reckless driving and interfering with the duties of a peace officer. Mr. Baxter's calm demeanor and support during this difficult, embarrassing incident were his primary assets. His extensive experience working in Deschutes County, in particular the District Attorney's office, also were factors in my decision. In the end, Mr. Baxter was able to get the Reckless and Interfering Charges dismissed and I am currently enrolled in diversion for the DUI. This was the best possible scenario I could have envisioned after facing the possibility of additional charges that would have resulted in substantial penalties. I have certainly learned a life lesson as a result of this arrest and am thankful to Mr. Baxter for his representation.”
