Were you arrested for a crime in the Washington County, Oregon? If so, don't try to handle your case alone. Get the help of a knowledgeable attorney. I am a Washington county criminal defense lawyer who has extensive courtroom experience. I have handled hundreds of defense cases in the courtroom, and I have gone to trial more than 100 times. Because of this experience, I have valuable insight into the tactics that are used by prosecutors, as well as the best ways that my clients can defend themselves from such tactics. I thoroughly prepare for each case I take on, and I work diligently to remain one step ahead of the prosecution.
One common criminal matter I deal with at my law firm-Neal Weingart, Attorney at Law, LLC-is the criminal charge of driving under the influence of intoxicants. This is commonly referred to as DUI and DUII. When Individuals are convicted of DUI offenses, they could end up serving time in jail, paying expensive fines and losing their driving privileges through license suspensions. Whether you are accused of a first offense or you have multiple DUI offenses on your record, I can help you challenge your DUI charges. Even if you failed your BAC testing (or testing that determines your blood alcohol concentration), it is still not too late to build a strong defense on your behalf and potentially avoid conviction. In some cases, it is in the client's best interests to participate in a DUII Diversion Program in place of harsher penalties.
In addition to DUI, I also handle many other types of criminal defense cases, whether they involve drug crimes, theft crimes, domestic violence or other types of violent crimes. My firm even provides defense against sex crime charges, which are some of the most serious and stigmatizing offenses out there. Whether you have been accused of an offense as minor as shoplifting or as serious as rape, I am equipped to provide you with the guidance you need throughout your criminal proceedings.
