Drunk Driving and Drugged Driving cases can be very technical but defensible. Issues that may arise include law enforcement not following breath tests procedures, mistakes at the toxicology lab, breath test machines not being properly maintained, and more.

At the law Harlan Law Firm, our lawyers know how to identify the issues that the prosecution may miss. We know because Beau and Joe are former criminal prosecutors. We know how the government attorneys operate and will use that knowledge to your advantage.

Driving Under the Influence of intoxicants (DUI) is one of the most common criminal allegations defended by the Harlan Law Firm. DUI is a crime that cuts across all social and economic barriers. We have defended doctors, lawyers, homemakers, military personnel, and hundreds of other good hard working folks.

Consequences of a DUI or DWI Allegation or Conviction

“Defending Your Driver’s License”

The allegation of DUI alone, or a conviction, can jeopardize your driving privilege with a potential license suspension of 90 days to Years.  Additional penalties for an allegation or conviction may include the installation of an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) on your car and a requirement of high-risk SR-22 insurance.

“Defending against Criminal Charges”

In the State of Oregon and Washington, it is unlawful for any person to drive while their ability to drive is appreciably affected by alcohol/drugs or while their blood alcohol level is in excess of .08.

Driving Under the Influence is a Gross Misdemeanor. The maximum sentence is up to a year in jail and fine of $5,000.00 or $6,250.00 depending on whether the offense occurred on Washington or Oregon. In both states a DUI conviction carries a minimum mandatory amount of jail time. In addition to a criminal sanction, each state may administratively suspend a person’s driving privileges for as little as 90 days and as long as 2 years.  For second and third offenses, the penalties become increasingly more severe. It is essential that you have an aggressive and skilled attorney supporting you.

Through the years, we have successfully defended hundreds of people accused of Driving Under the Influence. Although a serious offense, it is a crime that can be defended and is a crime that carries a punishment that can be managed.
