The days when any drunk driving charge was treated like a traffic ticket are long gone. Even first-time offenders charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in California face an array of life-changing consequences today, so if you have one or more prior DUIs on your record, your need for a dedicated defense lawyer is critical.
Whether this is your second DUI charge or your fourth within 10 years — which means you are looking at a felony charge and the possibility of a serious jail sentence — your situation is tough, but not hopeless. The single best step you can take is to contact an attorney now who will truly focus on your case and pursue every option for protecting your future.
