1.5 million people are arrested for DUI offenses each year and approximately 33% of these have at least one previous DUI conviction. If you have been charged with a second, third, or fourth DUI in a ten year period, you have a very tough road ahead of you. Overcoming multiple DUI offenses can be extremely difficult, especially without the proper representation. The Seattle DUI defense lawyers at our firm have a great deal of experience representing clients charged with multiple DUI offenses and know what it takes to effectively defend you.

The reason multiple DUI offenses are so serious is because judges and prosecutors have little tolerance for people who have more than one DUI in their history. Receiving a second, third or fourth DUI charge can be very upsetting and can lead to very serious legal consequences. In order to effectively combat this, you will need aggressive representation from a Seattle DUI attorney at our firm. Judges and prosecutors will work very hard to make sure you are not allowed back on the roads and you will need someone who is not afraid to fight for your driving privileges and for your freedom.

Multiple DUI convictions can result in the following penalties:

  • Jail sentences
  • The suspension of your Washington driver’s license
  • Vehicle impoundment
  • Large Fines
  • Probation
  • Alcohol treatment
  • Community Service
  • Ignition interlock device installed on your car
