“GOOD LAWYERS AREN’T CHEAP AND CHEAP LAWYERS AREN’T GOOD.”
We Defend DUII Charges in the Entire State of Oregon
If you have been arrested in the State of Oregon for Driving Under the influence of Intoxicants, you are facing a mandatory license suspension of at least one year and fines, fees and surcharges that will reach into the thousands of dollars. Not to mention your insurance company. When they discover the conviction, you can look forward to thousands of dollars of surcharges over 3 years. If your license is suspended, unlike other states, Oregon does not provide for an immediate restricted driver’s license. It does not matter if you need to drive for work, how essential the destination is, or that you need to drive for your family. If the DMV suspends the earliest you can get a work permit is 30 days. If the court suspends, if could be longer.
For these reasons, it is important that the attorney that you hire is an experienced Oregon DUI attorney who is aggressive, innovative, and knowledgable. You have come to the right place.
Don’t Hire Us if You Want to Plead Guilty. Hire Us to Fight for a Dismissal or Aquital.
Carini & Francis are DUI lawyers exclusively devoted to DUII defense. 95% of what we do is helping people with DUI and related charges. We travel to all 36 counties in Oregon representing people accused of DUII.
If you are considering hiring Carini & Francis it is imperative that you realize that we are vigilant in defending our clients. Do not hire us if all you want is an attorney to walk you into court and plead you guilty. That is not what we do. Hire us if you want Carini & Francis to aggressively pursue a dismissal of the charges brought against you and if that does not come about, to present the case to a jury when all else fails.
A big mistake that most people make is believing that there is nothing that can be done to defend against a DUII charge. There are many challenges that can be made to your DUII arrest. These cases can be won and are won. We get positive results in the majority of our cases because we leave no stone unturned and we will not stop fighting for you until you tell us to.
We will assess your case and all defenses associated with it. We will compel the state to provide to us the police reports, the video and audio evidence, the certifications for the breath test used by you, the police officers arrest logs, the chromatograms, the breath test reports, maintenance records, etc. In short will will compel these to provide all of the discovery that we think we need to win you case. We prepare our cases for trial even though most of our cases resolve with our a trial. We suspect that our track record of success is due to preparation.
FREE OREGON DUII EVALUATION
Who your lawyer is will have an impact on your DUI case. All of the DUII lawyers at Carini & Francis are trained in field sobriety testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This is the same agency that trains and qualifies the police officer who administered to road-side tests to you. Peter Carini became and Instructor in these tests so that he would know them better than the officers. We will know if the tests were done improperly.
Breath Testing Qualified
Peter Carini is a trained operator of the Intoxilyzer 5000 breath testing machine. Carini & Francis is the only law firm in the State of Oregon to own this device. Mr. Carini is also a trained operator of the Intoxilyzer 8000 breath testing machine. Because of our knowledge of how the machine works, we thoroughly understand the machine that you were tested on. We know that just because the machine printed a result of .08 or greater does not mean that the number was accurate or true. With the right attorney and testimony, the breath test results can be turned into the weakest part of the prosecutor’s case.
Blood, Urine Testing, and Drug Recogntion Evaluations
We will determine whether the Drug Recognition Evaluation (DRE) was performed correctly and whether the result obtained by the officer are consistent with the correct protocol. We will determine whether your blood draw or urine sample was done properly, whether the sample was stored properly and whether the lab applied the correct testing procedures. We can do this because we have gone through the same DRE classroom training that the police officer who did the drug recognition evaluation upon you. We can ascertain whether your lab results are correct because we have studied with the premiere forensic scientists and attended comprehensive training in order to help us identify blood and urine testing issues.
