With a goal to ultimately reduce DUII/DUI/DWI offenses, Oregon has created a DUI diversion program that many individuals qualify for during their first drunk driving offense. If you successfully complete this program, your DUI charge is dismissed. That's right, dismissed!

A Trusted Eugene DUII Lawyer Helping You Overcome Your Legal Struggles
A DUI conviction can hinder your life forever. At this Eugene law practice, we are committed to helping you understand your legal options when you are up against serious drunk driving charges.
While many people are eligible for the DUI diversion program, there are certain criteria for entering the program, including:
- You have not been involved with a DUI or diversion program in the past 15 years
- You do not have a commercial driver's license
- Your case does not involve an accident involving injuries to other parties resulting from your DUI charge
While these are some of the eligibility requirements for entering the Oregon DUII diversion agreement program, there are exceptions, depending upon your case. For instance, if you have been in a similar rehabilitation program you entered in order to obtain some benefit from the government, you may not be eligible, however if you voluntarily entered a rehabilitation program, it may not preclude you from this DUI diversion program.
At Duvall Law Office, P.C., we can help you understand if you are eligible for Oregon's DUI diversion program, and enroll in the program if you meet the criteria. This involves filing the appropriate paperwork with the court within 30 days of your first court appearance and handling the related court matters such as fees and an alcohol evaluation. Once you have successfully completed the program, you will receive a dismissal of your DUI charge. You will avoid the potential related penalties, like jail time, fines and suspensions.
