Your DUI Defense Court Appearance

Navigating Your DUI Defense Court Appearance With The Law Offices of Erik Nicholson.

At some point before your release from custody, you will be given paperwork requiring you to appear in court at a later date. It is very important that you DO NOT MISS your Clackamas or Washington County court date! Failing to appear for your court date will result in a warrant for your arrest, which will make you ineligible to participate in a DUII Diversion program. Missing your court date also runs the risk of being charged with another Class A Misdemeanor – Failure to Appear.

Hit & Run Charges

The Oregon DUI Courts can be very confusing and we always recommend having a skilled Clackamas or Washington County attorney representing you to make sure no missteps or mistakes are made. Having a defense attorney who can keep you informed and up to date regarding your court appearance and the legal process is an important measure in your DUI case.
