Albany DUII Lawyer

Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII) is a criminal charge that can arise when an individual operates a vehicle while under the influence of any controlled substance, including alcohol. Drunk driving and related charges are not uncommon and are considered by some lawyers to be the "low-hanging fruit" of the criminal justice system. As an Albany DUII attorney who has represented an unmatched number of defendants, however, I treat them with a higher level of concern and care.

My name is Forrest Reid, and for more than 30 years, I have committed my legal practice to matters of criminal defense. In my time as an Albany, Oregon, DUII attorney, I have seen the serious consequences that individuals from all walks of life suffer due to the DUII charges against them, and I have worked to protect their driving privileges as well as their criminal record in administrative and criminal court.

DUII charges and cases of multiple DUIIs can fall on people for any number of controlled substance issues, including:

  • Alcohol consumption and blood alcohol content (BAC) levels that exceed the limit
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Methamphetamines
  • Prescription drugs including Vicodin, Percocet, prescription painkillers and more

Protecting Your Drivers License And Your Criminal Record

Remember that as soon as you are arrested, the timeliness of your criminal defense actions is critical. DUII charges, specifically, cause you to fight a battle on two fronts: One against the Department of Motor Vehicles and one against the criminal justice system. You have only 10 days to request a hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to prevent your license from being automatically suspended, you should secure legal representation as soon as possible to conduct a thorough investigation and protect your rights.

I remain devoted to helping my clients achieve favorable outcomes in their DUII cases, whether that involves handling administrative hearings to protect driving privileges, having cases dismissed, charges reduced, sentences reduced or drug and alcohol counseling efforts put in place to prevent any future crimes. The well-being of my clients and their families is my top-priority, and I am known to deliver results.
