DUI Defense Overview

Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs is one of the most frequently charged serious criminal offenses in Central Oregon. We recognize that a lapse in judgment, a quick decision or even a mistake by law enforcement may have put you in a position that calls for experienced, insightful legal guidance and aggressive defense of your future.

At Mario F. Riquelme & L. Todd Wilson Partners At Elliott, Riquelme & Wilson LLP, we know that the consequences of a DUI conviction (known as DUII in Oregon) under current state laws are severe and far-reaching. Anyone arrested for DUI must consider the impact of potential jail time, a lengthy driver's license suspension, substantial fines, increased insurance costs and a criminal record that can create severe financial hardship. Whether you are a Bend area resident or were arrested while vacationing in our area, we offer personally attentive and results-driven DUI defense.
