If you are arrested for DUII, it is important that you take action quickly because the clock starts ticking immediately after you either take or refuse a breath, blood, or urine test. You only have 10 days to request a hearing to contest the suspension of your license under Oregon’s implied consent laws. You are entitled to a hearing before the suspension takes place and we are experienced at those hearings.

DUII Law Generally Oregon


        In Oregon, you can be convicted for DUII if the State can prove your blood alcohol content is 0.08 percent or more by weight. That is referred to as a per se limit. However, you can also be convicted of DUII in Oregon if the state can prove you were under the influence of intoxicating liquor, cannabis, a controlled substance, an inhalant, or combination thereof while driving. In other words, if the State can prove you were impaired by certain substances while driving you can be convicted of DUII even if your blood alcohol content is below a .08 BAC. DUII law is far more complicated than this short synapsis so it is important that you consult with an attorney so you know your rights.

The Process


        What happens if you are arrested for DUII? It is important to understand that two separate processes begin when you are arrested for DUII. One is the criminal case that must be resolved through a court process. There is also a second process through the Department of Motor Vehicles that begins the moment you take a breath, blood, or urine test or refuse one or more of those tests.
