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

  • All around a FANTASTIC attorney!!!!

    “I would recommend Casey to anyone needing a criminal defense attorney. Casey has fought on my behalf in the Deschutes County court system for almost a year now. He was granted to me as my public defender. I've never seen an attorney work harder for a client. He has been compassionate and supportive...from day one he explained each facet of my case to me in terms I could understand, and walked me through each step of the legal process of my case. Because of Casey's experience and hard work, I was able to present the state with positive proof of my own progress and get two of my charges dismissed and my original charge continued on a conditional discharge. Casey helped me show the state that I had worked very hard to change my life and lifestyle...and he went above and beyond to make sure I was given credit for all of my hard work. All around a FANTASTIC attorney!!!!”

  • In the end, all criminal charges were dropped.

    “I was referred to Casey from another attorney for my criminal charge of Vehicular Assault of a Pedestrian and Reckless Driving. Casey saw me right away and knew how to handle the case. Since Casey used to work for the District Attorney's office he knew the opposing attorney, their style, and how to direct the case. In the end, all criminal charges were dropped. Thank you Casey!”

  • Guilty or not, he'll get you the best deal he can

    “My case was unique. Facing my second revoke, with only two people showing up for support, Casey managed to help me out of a bind. It took some minor nit picking, but that's all it takes. He will also make sure you understand everything so that you're not left feeling naive or played by the system. Guilty or not, he'll get you the best deal he can, if you're not completely acquitted of your charges. ”
