DUI & DUII Attorney Portland, OR

Frequently Asked Questions

I was just arrested for a DUI, what happens now?

Being arrested for DUII in Oregon is stressful — especially because of the fear of the unknown. Adam Greenman is here to help. Visit our Oregon DUII Information & Oregon DUII Law FAQs page to learn what you can expect. Remember: my team is here to help you every step of the way.

Am I eligible for a DUII diversion?

To be eligible for the Oregon DUII Diversion Program, you must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • This is your first DUII or you haven't been convicted of a DUII felony in 15 years

  • Your driving under the influence did not harm or kill anyone

  • You are not currently going through a DUII diversion program in another state, nor have you completed one in the last 15 years

  • Over the past 15 years, you haven't been charged with aggravated vehicular homicide or driving-related murder, manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, or assault. No charges can be pending either.

  • You didn’t have a commercial drivers license or weren’t driving a commercial vehicle at the time

Our DUI law office will help you understand whether or not you are eligible for this program.

Will my DUI case go to trial?

That depends. If this is your first DUI arrests and you meet the requirements, the Oregon Diversion Program is the best resolution for your case, with  99% of all clients in this situation choosing this option. However, if you do not qualify or you’re convinced that a jury would not convict you based on the state’s evidence, we start preparing for trial.

How much does it cost for a DUI/DUII attorney?

At Adam Greenman Law, we offer a variety of fee structures to ensure you get the legal counsel you need. If this is your first DUI/DUII, we offer a $1800 flat fee. Plus, for those who pay the full amount up front, we’ll take 10% off.

Portland DUI Attorney

It happens to good people. Somehow you’ve found yourself in the back of a Portland police cruiser and you’re on your way to jail. It doesn’t matter what city you’re in when it happens, getting pulled over and then arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) can be extremely overwhelming! The reality is that even though your situation may seem “hopeless” especially if you are charged, this doesn’t always mean that you will be convicted as well.

The key to success after being arrested for DUI is hiring the proper DUI Defense Lawyer to represent you and Gilroy Napoli Short, a local Portland Oregon DUI Law Firm is the team you can trust to handle your case. Our attorneys have years of experience representing individuals, like you, who are facing DWI charges and when you have us in your corner, you can count on the best outcome for your DUI/DUII case.

Our criminal defense law firm employs a team of former law enforcement officers, forensic experts, private investigators and former prosecutors who come together to work on our cases and offer our clients the best possible results.

The professional criminal law attorneys at the GNS Law Firm have defended many clients throughout the State of Oregon including Portland area, Multnomah County, Clackamas County and Washington County.

Drunk Driving Arrest in Portland: What You Need to Know

Multnomah County is definitely one of the toughest counties in the state of Oregon regarding Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and punishment for those crimes.

If you or one of your loved ones was recently arrested and is possibly facing a conviction for driving under the influence in the Multnomah County area it’s understandable that you may have a great deal of stress and possibly uncertainty regarding the future.

Fortunately, when you retain the services of an experienced DUI attorney like Gilroy Napoli Short, you will eliminate that stress, anxiety, and concern because our firm will provide you with the best legal representation that you need especially when it comes to the possibility of facing penalties, jail time or sentencing related to your DUI charge.

Citation and Release

Were you recently cited and released for a DUI in the Multnomah County area? If so, you will have been given a citation with an order to appear for your court date and also sentencing.


Let’s say that you were arrested for DWI in Multnomah County. Upon your release from a local County Jail, you will be been given an agreement which will also contain instructions for you to appear for your court date.

Felony DUI

Were you recently booked into the Multnomah County jail on felony DUI charges? If so, you can expect to be held until your court date, but in some cases, you may be able to post bail.

Court Appearance

When the time comes for your court appearance, it’s going to take place at the Multnomah Municipal Court which is located at 1021 SW 4th Ave, Portland, OR 97204.

It is your responsibility to know the exact date, time and location of your court appearance because, if you do not show up for your court date, a warrant will be issued for your arrest and you can expect to be picked up by the police, cited with a charge of failure to appear, then held in jail for your next scheduled court appearance.

Sentencing Options

One of the great things about hiring an experienced DUII attorney like Gilroy Napoli Short is that he can tell you more than anyone about your sentencing options.

It’s important to keep in mind that a DUI charge is still a state crime and every court in the state of Oregon treats DWI charges in their own way. This is why it’s vital to have an experienced Portland, Oregon DUI Lawyer representing your best interests in court.

Multnomah County Treatment Courts

Did you know that the Multnomah County DUII Treatment Court program uses the 12-step addiction treatment model with sanctions and incentives that are designed to help members take responsibility for their actions and become successful in the recovering process?

Thankfully, this program is open to DUII offenders who have up to three misdemeanor DUII charges or a high breathalyzer reading including a blood alcohol test that results in a DUII charge.

Multnomah County DUII Diversion Program

In the state of Oregon, any person who is facing their first charge of drunk driving it’s going to be eligible to enter the DUII diversion program instead of serving jail time. To be allowed to enter this program, you must plead guilty, or no contest to charges. If you are a found to have complied with the terms and stay out of trouble, your DUI may be dismissed after one year.

Portland DUI Lawyers

Well, first and foremost you need stellar legal representation, and the Reynolds Defense Firm specializes in just that. Our team of attorneys have combined 50 years of local Oregon DUI law experience, both on the prosecution and the defense sides, and we are second to none. We focus all of our time and expertise on one very small area of the law, and we do it very well – we represent good people facing DUI charges, primarily in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties.

Our DUI attorneys are in these local courthouses multiple times every week, and we have excellent working relationships with the judges and prosecutors we work with, some going back more than 18 years. Now, does this mean we can get backdoor deals for our clients? No, but the better we know the people behind the job titles, the better we can communicate, and this communication is one of the keys to our success.

Since we specialize in DUI cases in Oregon, we help good people facing their First time DUI, DUI under 21, and help our clients successfully complete DUI Diversion. Our Portland DUI Lawyers have had fantastic outcomes in Marijuana DUI and Prescription drug DUI cases because they have experience with the Drug Recognition Exams (DRE), that specialized police officers use, so understand how to best defend those cases.

If you have been arrested with a citation or Reckless Driving or a Driving while Suspended (DWS) in addition to your DUI, we can help you. The legal Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) limit for a DUI in Oregon is .08, and we regularly represent clients who have had a Breath Test below the legal limit.

If you have already entered Diversion, but have received a notice for Show Cause Hearing, our Portland DUI lawyers can speak on your behalf, to prevent a DUI Conviction. We also represent clients at Probation Violations for DUI, to best help them move forward with their lives in a positive way.

One of the main advantages of hiring our team of fantastic DUI Attorneys in Portland verses hiring a public defender is that we can take care of your DMV Hearing as it relates to your Implied Consent. This hearing needs to be requested within 10 date of your arrest, since most public defenders are assigned at the arraignment, in most cases, your 10 day window will have passed by then. In order to put your best foot forward and prevent a License Suspension, we recommend that you request your DMV Hearing within the 10 day window – we can do this for you if you decide to work with us.

Next, you deserve to work with a team of genuine, caring people. As you know all too well, being arrested can shake you to your core in a way that most people don’t fully grasp. You’re probably beating yourself up right now, asking yourself “how could I have put myself in this situation, I know better.” Your feelings of dread, fear and embarrassment can make you want to crawl under a rock. We understand what you are going through, and we take the time to help you work through the human side of being arrested as well as the legal side.

In my experience, I also believe it is important that you find a team of genuine, caring people rather than an individual or group of attorneys with minimal staff, even if the attorney may seem great. I tried that business model twelve years ago, when I first opened my law firm - I tried to save money by doing everything myself instead of having a support team to help me. What I learned was that I just didn’t have enough focused time to do the quality of work I wanted to because I was spread too thin and doing too many things at once.

Although you might not think of it this way, a law firm is a business, and it takes a lot of work to run any smooth and successful business. Your attorney shouldn’t be the one making the business run - you need and deserve a team of DUI attorneys in the Portland area who have dedicated time to focus on your case! How focused and effective can your attorney be when he or she gets distracted from your case every time the phone rings because he or she answers their own phone, or when they must personally deal with the copier jams, or low inventory of office supplies? On an even more serious note, without a team behind you, what do you do if your attorney goes out for two weeks with the flu or a family emergency in the middle of helping you through your case?

At Reynolds Defense Firm we have an entire team of genuine, caring people. Each of us is an “A” player, and we each understand that our individual role is essential to the success of our team. By working together we are much stronger and we do a much better job for our clients than any of us could possibly do on our own. This is how we make sure that we do our absolute best to help each person we represent.

Lastly, trust and communication are essential, and they have to flow both ways. No matter what happens, this probably isn’t going to be the most fun you’ve ever had, and for us to do the absolute best we can for you, we need to be able to trust each other and have honest and sincere conversations. To get the best outcomes, our Portland DUI lawyers take the time in the beginning to get to know each of our clients personally – where do they come from and where are they going, their goals and concerns, what do they want out of life, and what keeps them up at night. I believe the better we understand who our clients are, the better job we can do for them.

The Reynolds Defense Firm isn’t right for everyone, but if you are a good person who needs help, we may be exactly what you are looking for. Please call us today at 503.832.6257 so we can start working together to get you through this.

A Commitment to Oregon Criminal Defense

Please take a look at the information on this website. We hope it will give you a feel for who we are, our philosophy of practicing law, and how deeply we are committed to helping our clients. At the same time, please realize that if you’ve been arrested for a crime, no website can provide you with the assistance you need. Every case is different, the people involved are different, the law enforcement personnel are different, and so are the courts, judges and prosecutors.

Trying to get accurate legal answers about Oregon DUI law through the internet is much like trying to figure out a medical diagnosis online – by the end you will have spent too much of your valuable time, probably scared the heck out of yourself, and still have no certainty in the answers to your questions. If you’ve been arrested for a DUI or a related traffic crime, please give our Portland DUI lawyers a call at 503.832.6257.

Logic is not the strong suit of our criminal justice system. If you have been accused of committing a crime, your common sense can steer you wrong – what seems minor can have huge legal implications, and sometimes the biggest problems can boil down to very little. If you have been arrested, or if you are under investigation, we can help you.

So if you have been arrested or charged with a DUII, or related traffic charges, please don’t spend your time trying to get the answers you need by surfing the web. If you have a question, just call us directly.

Your lawyer, if they are good, does not just have a solid knowledge of the law. They must possess the skills to negotiate, advocate, and argue. Under the American adversarial system, they must be able to perceive the weaknesses and strengths of the prosecution’s position, as well as yours. They must have worked to develop relationships with the law enforcement community and gained extensive experience working within the criminal justice system, so that they will have special insight into crafting the best strategy for success in your particular case. It is important for each lawyer to understand the procedures and practices that are distinct to the jurisdiction and court where your case is being prosecuted.

Because DUI law is state specific, you want to be sure that the DUI lawyer you decide to hire has experience in Oregon. Each county & jurisdiction handles the process of a DUI arrest slightly differently, so make sure you talk through their experience locally in Portland and the surrounding counties to be sure they know how your case will be handled. Our DUI lawyers travel throughout the state of Oregon and because we have an entire legal team focused on Oregon DUI cases, we have extensive knowledge on how the DUI process works in each county.

When you are confronted with an arrest for DUII, or other criminal conduct, you want to put your legal troubles into the hands of the DUI lawyers who understand exactly what you are experiencing, and who will be committed to defending you. At the Reynolds Defense Firm, we are very good at what we do. We know how cases are prosecuted, and our job is make sure that the court sees the person behind the police report and help you get the best outcomes for you and your priorities.

Call Reynolds Defense Firm Today

There is no charge for our first telephone conversation, and we may be able to provide answers to the questions that most concern you. We can provide you with the information you need to make an informed and wise decision on what your next step should be.

I know what you are going through. No matter how many “cop shows” or movies you have seen, nothing can prepare you for the reality of being charged with a crime. The threat of punishment; the anxiety over how the case might affect your life, your family, your friends; the fear of an uncertain future: all of these things can be nearly overwhelming. Television notwithstanding, ordinary citizens inexperienced with the grim reality of being put through the criminal justice system are simply not prepared for what they face, and they need a strong, solid legal advocate in their corner. The sooner you hire the right attorney to act on your behalf, the sooner you can start sleeping at night again. Your first court appearance is typically an Arraignment (link), and we can often waive your need to be there, so your DUI attorney will appear on your behalf.

If you or someone you care about needs legal help for a DUI matter in Portland or in the surrounding communities, do not wait too long without knowing what you can do to help yourself. The sooner you hire a DUI attorney in Portland to represent you, the more effectively you will be able to protect your rights and start developing a case strategy that will earn positive results.

Your future and your freedom are too important to let yourself get put into a corner. Do not pass up the opportunity to give us a call and ask how we may be able to help you. Of course I hope our conversation will lead to our working together, but regardless, we will help you better understand your situation and your options. You can use the online form to contact us, or call us at (503) 832-6257. Let us take some of the mystery and fear out of your predicament and help you to regain some control over your future.

Frequently Asked Questions About Portland DUI Charges

Which Police Agencies Make Portland DUI Arrests?

The Portland metropolitan area has a population of over 2 million people and actually spans three Oregon counties: Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas. There are several law enforcement agencies working DUI patrols and making DUI arrests in Portland. The Portland Police Bureau, the Gresham Police Department, and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office are the law enforcement agencies most responsible for DUI enforcement in Multnomah County. However, the Oregon State Police also handle DUI investigations and make arrests. On average, there are a total of about 3,000 DUI arrests each year in the Portland area.

Portland Oregon DUI Lawyer

Where Are Portland DUI Cases Heard?

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in Oregon is a crime. Some people are mistakenly under the impression that a DUI charge is nothing more than a traffic ticket. The truth is that DUI is a class “A” Misdemeanor, and is punishable by one year in jail, five years probation, a $6,250.00 fine, a minimum driver’s license suspension of one year, community work service, electronic monitoring, and drug and alcohol treatment.

If you’ve been arrested or cited for a DUI, your citation will likely be sent to the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office for review. If they charge the case, the case will be heard by the Multnomah County Circuit Court. Most defendants are cited into the Multnomah County Justice Center in downtown Portland, however some east-county and Gresham DUI cases may also be heard at the East County Courthouse (the Rockwood complex).

DUI Arraignments in Portland

Your arraignment will typically be held in Circuit Court before a state judge. Arraignments are important procedurally, but you typically do not need to make any substantive decisions (e.g. you don’t have to plead guilty or request a trial) at your first appearance. However, it is critical that you appear personally for your arraignment or have your attorney do so for you, because the judge can issue a warrant for your arrest if you fail to appear, revoke any security you posted, and possibly exclude you from the diversion program if you are otherwise eligible.

Discovery (police reports, photographs, audio recordings, video recordings, etc.) are typically provided at or soon after the arraignment. You will want to review all the materials in the case with your attorney because you most likely will not understand some of the references in the materials or be able to spot issues that an experienced DUI attorney will.

After your arraignment, a review of the discovery, and a substantive meeting with your attorney, you typically report back to court for an entry of plea hearing. This is the time that you and your attorney officially indicate to the Court what you want to do (e.g. enter a plea, enter into a diversion, set the case for a Motion to Suppress, set the case for trial, etc). Depending on what you do at this hearing, you may have no more appearances before the Court, or you may have several.

What is a DMV Hearing, and Why Do I Need One?

Typically, the most time-sensitive matter with a DUI charge is dealing with the DMV Implied Consent suspension that comes with any breath test failure or breath test refusal. Oregon uses the Intoxilyzer 8000 for all breath tests, and if your test result was a .08 or greater– or if you declined the breath test– there will be an administrative suspension of your driving privileges by the Oregon DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles). This suspension is independent of any consequences or actions taken in the DUI criminal charge. The suspension typically starts 30 days after arrest without further notice to you.

In order to have a fighting chance to avoid this driver’s license suspension, you must request a DMV Implied Consent hearing within 10 days following your arrest or citation for DUI. If you’re going to be working with an attorney, it’s best to have your attorney send in the request along with his/her dates of availability for the hearing. The hearing is typically within 30 days after arrest or citation. DMV Implied Consent hearings for Portland DUI arrests are typically held at the Office of Administrative Hearings in Tualatin, Oregon.

What is Oregon’s DUI Diversion Program?

Many people fear the worst in DUI cases. It’s normal to feel anxious and embarrassed. Maybe even a little angry or depressed. The worst mistake that you can make is to take the attitude of “I just want to get this over with so I’m going to plead guilty.” The best thing you can do is sit down with a Portland DUI attorney and discuss your options. Many drivers will be eligible for Oregon’s DUI Diversion Program, and may be able to have the criminal DUI charge dismissed. However, there are DUI diversion eligibility requirements, and not everyone will want to enter a guilty plea in order to enter the program.

Will I Serve Jail Time for a DUI Charge?

Drivers arrested for DUI in Multnomah County will typically be booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center. If any jail service is required later as part of a sentence, you will serve additional jail at this location or at the Multnomah County Inverness Jail. Drivers eligible for Oregon’s DUI Diversion time will not need to serve additional jail time for their DUI if the charge is dismissed. However, drivers convicted of a DUI will likely serve additional jail.

Will I Need an Attorney for a Portland DUI?

Not necessarily, but you should at least have a consultation. Most attorneys do not charge for an initial consultation. Therefore, you have nothing to lose– and everything to gain– by understanding more about the process, and your possible defenses. If you ultimately chose to represent yourself (“pro se”), you could be at a real disadvantage.

If you can afford to retain a private attorney, hire one as soon as possible. Ideally, within days of your arrest, and before your arraignment. This is to make sure that the attorney can request a DMV Implied Consent hearing and prepare for the arraignment. Most private defense attorneys keep busy schedules. Therefore, you do not want to start making calls the day before a DMV hearing deadline or a court appearance.

Will I be eligible for a public defender on my DUI?

Possibly. If you cannot afford an attorney, get a public defender at your arraignment. However, the public defender cannot help you with the DMV Implied Consent Hearing. In addition, they likely cannot help you with administrative driver’s license suspension issues. Public defenders in the Portland Metro Area are frequently overworked and may not be able to spend as much time on your case as you’d like. However, a public defender is certainly better than not having an attorney at all.

Oregon Lawyer and Attorney Michael Romano

Oregon DUI Lawyer Michael Romano has over 20 years of combined experience as a former Oregon prosecutor and Deputy District Attorney, and as a current criminal defense attorney representing the accused.

Mr. Romano’s approach to criminal defense is very practical. We provide knowledgeable, experienced, thorough, and efficient representation in DUI cases– with a diligence and aggressiveness appropriate to the legal & practical consequences to the client, and the client’s personal preferences. In other words, a client who has a diversion-eligible DUI and a strong preference to quickly put the matter behind them may require or desire less work (and expense) than a client who is facing a lifetime revocation of their driving privileges, a felony DUI, or possible loss of employment.

Mr. Romano does not recommend that every case proceed to a motion to suppress or trial, but Mr. Romano has received “not guilty” verdicts (aka acquittals) for clients with BACs (blood alcohol content readings) ranging from .08 to .26. Simply put: We have the ability and desire to help all drivers facing a DUI charge in Oregon.

Portland DUI Attorney - Reynolds Defense Firm - What We Do

The teacher (her name was Anastasia Sergeevna) was not in the office. I finished it all and decided to jerk off. The danger of being caught by Anastasia Sergeevna made it even more awesome. She was a very beautiful, leggy brunette with 3 breast sizes, I often imagined her in my sexual fantasies.
