As autumn progresses, we are all making plans to travel to be with family at Thanksgiving, attend workplace holiday bashes, or even simply head to our favorite bar to watch the football game.
Alcohol is served at many of these events, and you believe you know how to drink responsibly and would never consider driving under the influence. Still, if you have a drink at a holiday party or while watching the big game and then drive home, you could be pulled over and accused of drunk driving.
The consequences of a DUI
The consequences of getting a DUI in Oregon are severe. You could face:
- Fines of $1,000 or more
- The loss of your driver’s license for one year
- Jail time
- Higher insurance premiums
These are only some of the ways a DUI can severely impact your life
These penalties can make it difficult if not impossible to carry on your normal life. How will you get to work or get your children to school without a driver’s license? Can you afford the high fines and other financial consequences of a DUI? Many people would find these consequences exorbitantly difficult to bear.

A DUI is distressing, but with the right help it does not have to destroy your life. Attorney Sepp understands the many concerns those facing a DUI have and can help guide them throughout the legal process.
