When an individual has been charged in a prior DUI offense, especially within the last 10 years, he or she can potentially face serious legal consequences. Georgia lawmakers are very tough on those who have committed more than one offense. If this is your second or third offense, it is even more important that you contact an Alpharetta DUI attorney immediately. Our legal team at the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson will take the necessary actions to help defend you and prevent a conviction that could lead to a long-term jail sentence. For example, if this is your fourth DUI offense, you will be charged with a felony and could potentially go to jail for up to five years as well as face a ten year license suspension.
Defending Clients with Prior DUI Convictions
It is critical that you have a strong legal team in place if this is your second, third or fourth DUI offense. Our firm takes your case seriously and will examine every aspect to determine how to best move forward. Establishing competent legal counsel is essential if you have prior offenses - if you are convicted you may face license suspension, community service, and/or jail time.
If you have multiple DUI offenses, you face at least one year without a driver's license. At that point, you may become eligible for a restricted license. You will, however, be required to install an ignition interlock device that requires you to provide a breath sample each time you drive. This is an expensive device and must be placed in any car that you drive.
Our legal team is dedicated to defending clients who are facing serious DUI charges. Our practice is exclusively dedicated to DUI defense and uses all the resources available to defend a client. If you work with us, you can be confident knowing that we will utilize expert witnesses, scientific evidence, and a lawyer well versed in DUI law and judgments.
