1st offense DUI. No big deal right?

1st offense DUI penalties.

No big deal right? WRONG! Once you get that first DUI conviction, you have set the table for the nightmare scenario… a 2nd offense DUI. The best preventative medicine is to ensure you don't get convicted in the first place.

Let's talk about the penalties. The fine for a 1st offense DUI is $500… $700 on a 2nd offense DUI. No jail on an ordinary 1st offense DUI… 7 days jail on an ordinary 2nd offense DUI. 90 day loss of license on a 1st offense DUI conviction… 3 year loss of license on a 2nd offense DUI conviction. That's right. I said a THREE YEAR suspension on a 2nd offense DUI.

The point of this article is to emphasize that you didn't plan on getting tagged with a DUI the first time around and you won't plan on it happening again for a 2nd offense. If you go the route of handling the case yourself or retaining the wrong lawyer, you will regret it if you find yourself on the DUI merry-go-round again.

Nip it in the bud and take care of the case now. Call my office to speak with me about your case before you make a decision that could negatively impact your future.
