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.

  • 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!!!!”

  • By far the best

    “My experience with Casey Baxter was nothing short of amazing. His whole office is so helpful, his paralegal and secretary are great as well. He is on your team 100%, other attorneys seem wishy washy but not Casey, he truly seems genuine and willing to go to bat to fight for you. He made me completely confident in going to trial. In my particular case we didn't have to because he was able to wheel and deal with the D.A. And get me an incredible deal. On top of that he was able to do everything in a timely matter. I had a nearly impossible deadline, we talked at 11 am and he had me on the docket for 1 pm that same day. I feel safe on Mr. Baxter's case load, anyone would. His background is very impressive, everything a person would want in a man defending them in a courtroom. When comes to little things other attorneys need to be reminded of with him there is no need, he is already on top of it. In other words Casey Baxter and his staff are a great team and are by far the best at representing you in your time of need.”

  • I can look toward a better tomorrow because of what he accomplished.I can look toward a better tomorrow because of what he accomplished.

    “Casey Baxter has been the most amazing attorney, and has truly changed the course of my future. He took the time to listen to me explain about everything that was going on in my life, not just about what happened on the day of my incident, and was able to get the judge to listen as well. He was able to change the outcome into something that was actually manageable for me. He and his staff were always available whenever I needed to ask a question or make a change. I am very grateful for all he has done for me and can look toward a better tomorrow because of what he accomplished.”
