Prior Convictions & Enhanced Penalties

When a driver has a prior DUI (driving under the influence) conviction on his or her record, this will have a significant impact on any new drunk driving charges, whether a simple DUI offense or a case related to DUI causing injury or hit and run. There are two key factors that will influence the impact that the prior conviction has:

  • When the conviction occurred; and
  • What type of offense the conviction was for, such as simple DUI versus a DUI accident.

When our firm takes on a new case for a client who is facing DUI charges, we take the time to review their history to determine whether a prior conviction will play a role in this new charge. Because enhanced penalties are on the line, we will work tirelessly to protect their legal rights in these matters in order to help them avoid an extended term of imprisonment and the possibility of permanent license revocation. Should you choose to work with a lawyer at our firm, you can feel confident that we will place your best interests at the forefront of our concerns.

Representing Drivers with Prior DUI Convictions on Their Records

All criminal and license suspension penalties associated with DUI, including imprisonment, community service, probation, fines and court fees, will be enhanced if a driver has one or more drunk driving convictions on his or her record. In a case where a driver has three prior convictions, he or she may face felony charges for a fourth DUI. That is why we believe it is so important to protect our clients from convictions, whether this is their first offense or they have been convicted of DUI in the past. Any criminal conviction may have a serious impact on all aspects of one's life, including their employment, reputation and even educational, housing and financial opportunities.
