DUI Lawyer

DUI/Drunk Driving Defense Lawyer

Getting arrested for drunk driving can be a terrifying experience, especially if it’s a person’s first time being charged with a crime. If you have been charged with DUI, you should invoke your 5th Amendment rights and tell the arresting officer you are not willing to make any statements without your drunk driving attorney present. Remember: drivers who try to talk their way out of an arrest often end up incriminating themselves, making their situation worse. Another important aspect of a DUI charge is that it doesn’t just involve the criminal justice system: it also involves the Department of Motor Vehicles. If you have been arrested for DUI, you are facing an administrative license suspension by the DMV regardless of whether you are eventually convicted or not.

A knowledgeable DUI lawyer can help you both fight your criminal charges and protect your driving privileges by dealing with the DMV on your behalf. Get help avoiding prison time, expensive fines, license suspension, drunk driving classes, and the other possible consequences of a DUI conviction by calling an aggressive Vancouver criminal defense lawyer today.

Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer

When a violent act is committed by one person against another and the parties involved are former or current spouses, romantic partners, roommates, or family members, the aggressor can be charged with domestic violence. The penalties for those convicted of domestic violence in Oregon or Washington are very harsh and often involve prison time and hefty fines. In many cases, individuals accused of domestic violence may also be served with temporary or permanent restraining or protective orders that can prevent them from returning to their home or seeing their children.

At The Law Office of Nicholas Wood, PS, we know how a domestic dispute can get out of hand and lead to an arrest even if no actual violence or threat of violence occurred. It’s not unusual for one party in an intimate relationship to make false allegations to serve their own ends, and if you feel that you have been unjustly accused of domestic violence, you need to act decisively to protect your rights and interests. Contact a skilled domestic violence attorney today to schedule a free consultation about your charges.

Felonies & Misdemeanors Defense Lawyer

In addition to representing clients who have been arrested for drunk driving or domestic violence, we also handle cases involving weapons crimes, juvenile crimes, white collar crimes, theft and other property crimes, drug crimes, moving violations, and other felonies and misdemeanors. In addition, we also represent members of the US military during court martials, Article 15 procedures, and appearance before discharge review boards.
