Charges for DUI crimes get increasingly worse with each subsequent conviction. That's why fighting a DUI charge is vital, no matter the odds. If you give up your chance for a dismissal or acquittal on a first-time DUI, it makes you vulnerable for even worse consequences in the future. For people who need to drive to work or school, you can't afford a single DUI conviction on your record because it will cost your driver's license (as well as a number of professional licenses).
Although each case will be different, the penalties for DUI could include:
Third-time DUI (or Multiple DUI)
Multiple DUIs potentially affect nearly every area of your daily life. For one, frequent DUI charges could result in a felony DUI charge, which would have to be reported on all job applications, housing applications, loan applications, and other crucial paperwork. Even if you're cold sober for 25 years, a felony charge would force you to pay more for housing (or live in less valuable neighborhoods). Our attorneys understand the stakes our clients face, even before they do. That's why they turn to us for help.
