Criminal Law Attorney
If you are under investigation for committing a crime, you need to seek a lawyer's advice immediately. Knowing your rights may make a huge difference in whether you speak to the police, remain silent or have an attorney present while being questioned. In many cases, having legal advice prior to speaking to a police officer can save you from extended interrogations, mischaracterization of your statements, and possible future charges being filed against you.

If you have been charged with a crime, you don't need someone to preach to you about what you did wrong and how you could have avoided trouble. What you do need is someone who understands your situation and can offer help.
I am criminal defense attorney Shelley L. Fuller. From my law office in Beaverton, Oregon, I offer sound legal advice and representation with the goal of protecting your rights, defending your name and lessening the negative consequences of the allegations against you.

Representing Clients Fighting a Probation Violation Due to A Positive EtG Urinalysis
My office is increasingly being contacted by clients who need assistance fighting a probation violation due to inaccurate urinalysis test results stemming from a test called EtG, or Ethyl glucuronide. If you've been unjustly accused of consuming alcohol and are in jeopardy of being thrown out of your DUI diversion program or being found in violation of your probation, you need the assistance of an attorney who has knowledge and experience in fighting EtG test results.
Representing Clients Fighting a Probation Violation or Suspension of Their Professional License
My office is increasingly being contacted by clients who need assistance fighting a probation violation or suspension of their professional license due to inaccurate urinalysis test results stemming from a new test called EtG, or Ethyl glucuronide. If you've been unjustly accused of consuming alcohol and are in jeopardy of losing your professional license, being thrown out of your DUI diversion program or being found in violation of your probation, you need the assistance of an attorney who has knowledge and experience in fighting EtG test results.
Defending Motorists Accused of Drunk Driving
If you want to contest the administrative suspension of your license due to a Breathalyzer failure or refusal, you have just 10 days from the date of arrest to file your request for a hearing. In addition, first-time DUI offenders may be eligible for Oregon's Diversion Program. Successful completion of the Diversion Program can result in the DUI/DWI charge being dismissed, which could help prevent your insurance rates from skyrocketing.
Remember, just because you have been arrested and charged with a DUI/DWI does not mean you are guilty. So, how should you plead? Good question. We can help examine the evidence against you and find answers to how you should handle your case. I will advise you on your best course of action, then proceed in defending you against unjust charges and harsh penalties. Without a knowledgeable attorney on your side, you stand little chance of winning your courtroom battle.
Domestic Violence Charges – Know Your Options
If you have been charged with domestic assault, it is in your best interest to obtain experienced legal help immediately. For individuals facing charges for the first time, deferred sentencing may be available and may offer an attractive alternative to traditional sentencing. Successful completion can result in the dismissal of the domestic violence charges. You may be pressured to enter into a deferred sentencing program very early in your case. Seek out an attorney's advice immediately to determine whether deferred sentencing is right for you.
