When someone is charged with an Oregon drunk driving (aka Driving Under the Influence, DWI, DUII, DUI) offense in Eugene Springfield, the first question which comes to mind is usually: How do I find the best, experienced DUI lawyer? The best way to look for a lawyer specializing in a specific area is to call law firms which do not represent people in that area of law, here, DUII (Driving Under the Influence, DWI, DUI, drunk driving), but are well-established in the community. Call several of these law firms and ask them for a number of names of attorneys who defend people on DUI charges. Both in Eugene and Springfield, Oregon, there are a number of medium to larger sized firms which do not practice DUI or criminal defense. These would be good candidates. Call and ask for a list of names of DUII attorneys in the community. After you obtain those lists look for the common name. You will likely see that if you ask each of those firms for two or three DUI lawyers, that you will see a common name or names emerges. Those are likely DUI lawyers who are good at what they do, have plenty of experience, and practice drunk driving defense in Eugene and Springfield, as well as the surrounding area, on a regular basis. After that, it’s a matter of interviewing that lawyer. Questions to ask that lawyer are what percentage of their work involves DUI defense. How long have they been doing DUII defense. When their last DUII jury trial was in Eugene, Oregon (or, fill in the blank: Springfield, Oregon, Lane County Circuit Court, or Benton County Circuit Court, Douglas County Circuit Court, Linn County Circuit Court). An attorney who represents people charged with DUI is going to try those cases on a fairly regular basis.
