Initially, when we were pulled over in Central Point by local police, we were not concerned. My girlfriend had not violated any traffic laws so we were expecting to be on our way quickly. But instead, after smelling marijuana and discovering that we were medical marijuana patients, the police officers began conducting field sobriety tests. She passed all field sobriety tests, and blew a 0.0% blood alcohol level, yet was arrested.
After making dozens of phone calls and interviewing many local criminal defense attorneys, she hired Peter Carini. Not only did Mr. Carini ease our minds with his extensive knowledge of DUII law, he made himself available ANY time my girlfriend needed to speak with him.
Mr. Carini kept my girlfriend's license active and in good standing while we awaited trial. His easy going nature and charismatic charm made us both feel at ease about the impending trial. It was obvious that Mr. Carini would not only be the right attorney to handle the case, but he was also a trusted friend and a really nice man.
The trial of my girlfriend took two days. Before we even entered the court room there was a buzz in the lobby that Mr. Carini would be handling a DUII case. There were numerous people there to watch Mr. Carini's case.
During the two-day trial Mr. Carini brought vast amounts of police documents and training manuals to illuminate how these officers were supposed to have handled a suspected DUII case. She was found not guilty.
With the rapidly changing climate of marijuana law, it is imperative to have an ally. Peter Carini is not only that ally, but he exceeds your expectations. Therefore, his combination of calm confidence, warmth, and his vast expertise in DUII and DUI law make him a rare gem.

I have paid the guy a lot of money to defend my son and he's avoiding me, he doesn't have a game plan, he hasn't gotten any witnesses I've done all the leg work and spent a lot of time trying to get him to stay focused. Trial in 30 days and I feel he has totally dropped the ball. His number when you call just rings, no one answered. He moved his office and didn't notify us.

When my husband was arrested for DUII we hired a lawyer, paid a deposit and had our initial conference. We left that meeting feeling uneasy. We were referred to Peter Carini days later and after meeting him for a free consult felt like there was hope. He put us at easy enough to forgo the deposit we made with the other lawyer and hire Peter. The trial was delayed 5 different times over the course of a year (we believe because they didn't have a strong case). During the trial it was very evident that Peter knew his stuff. He is actually quit awesome to watch in action. He's so knowledgeable about DUII testing and training that he was actually showing the officer how to read his own manual. Our case ended in our favor. But even if it hadn't, I truly believe Peter did everything possible for us and we were in excellent hands. I would 100% recommend Peter Carini!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

AMAZING!! If you ever need a defense attorney Peter is the man to see! After waiting over a year to finally get to trail (the state didn't have a case!) the jury came back with a not guilty verdict! Worth every penny! Oh and did I mention he threw out his back the day before trail and still attended instead of delaying it :)

Wow. Way to totally mess up the stereotypes about lawyers!! Mr Carini provided TONS of information over the phone, with no payment whatsoever. His demeanor set our hearts at ease, and all of what he told us would happen came true. And he kept saying the funniest thing: "Save you money, you don't need to hire me." Seriously!
I tell you what though---if ever I do have a need, or if any friend has a need, there is only one attorney I will be calling. It is so frustrating to be dealing with "the system" when the authorities give you zero information. Thank goodness this attorney knows what happens and doesn't mind sharing that knowledge.

Mr. Carini is an excellent lawyer with a practice emphasizing the defense of duii. He is well known as an aggressive defender and knows as much or more information on the defense of duii than anyone.

We waited over a year to finally hear those two words.
It was a long and stressful process that was made much easier with the help of Mr Carini and his staff. The court system has its own time schedule and having the confidence to continue with our life while the case worked its way through is priceless.
That confidence was due to Mr Carini's extensive knowledge and certifications in the very same equipment, techniques, handbooks, studies, etc that are required of police officers. In fact, he is trained and certified to be an instructor as well. As it happens so was the police officer that made the charge. It was a battle of the instructors and Mr Carini won hands down.
He left the officer literally unable or unwilling to answer questions and had to drag out several answers from the officer the hard way. Step by step and often the long way around the obvious. It made an impression on the jury when the officer wouldn't answer positive to terms everyone is familiar with. Especially when answering yes or recognizing that term would be to our benefit and help Mr Carini make the point faster. He even frustrated the DA with his expertise against the officer that she commented on it in open court.
As with every trial, jury selection is important and we were impressed with his interviewing skills which helped to introduce the basic concepts of jury duty and reveal jurors who were lacking in various areas. And more importantly, spot jurors who could objectively and effectively listen to the evidence.
With the jury selection process he had the jurors so engaged. When he presented the opening statement one juror actually made an audible noise in disgust at what the prosecution was trying to do. It was still a long process breaking down the prosecution's case point by point but he helped to set the stage for what was to come.
Obviously, the details of your case will be different than what we went through. But you can have complete confidence that Mr Carini knows exactly where those specific details fit within the law.
We would highly recommend Mr Carini for anyone facing a DUII conviction or any other legal issue he handles. I am writing this for my husband so this is actually two recommendations in one. We were very impressed with Mr Carini and his staff and I am confident you will be too. He literally gave our lives back to us.
Thank you Mr Carini for everything.
Words just don't do justice to express how grateful we are to you!

My experience with Peter Carini was more than what I expected. I wanted an Attorney that would go to bat for me and do all that he could to get my case dismissed and that is exactly what he did.
Peter was knowledgeable, persuasive and very thurough.
I would highly recommend Peter to anyone who is in need of an excellent PC Attorney.
