A single DUI conviction can wreak havoc on your personal and professional life. If you are convicted of DUI a second time or even more, it can bring life as you know it to a screeching halt.
In California, a second DUI conviction comes with a mandatory jail sentence and suspension of your driver's license. If you are convicted of DUI a third time, the state considers you a "habitual traffic offender" for three years following your conviction and will suspend your license for two years. If you drive a vehicle for a living or hold any kind of professional license, your career will likely be in jeopardy.
For obvious reasons, if you face conviction of a repeat DUI offense, you need to secure the services of a criminal defense lawyer who has extensive experience handling multiple DUI and felony DUI cases. The consequences of a conviction are far too serious to rely on a lawyer who does not have thorough knowledge of DUI laws and the nuances that allow for effective defense in these cases.
The Law Offices of Frederick R. Remer in Hayward, California, has provided effective, experienced legal counsel against DUI and numerous other criminal charges for more than 40 years. Attorney Remer has completed numerous seminars and training sessions on the operation and maintenance of the breath-testing machines currently used by California law enforcement officers to gauge the blood alcohol content (BAC) of drivers. He knows how to identify weak spots in the prosecution's case and use them to his advantage.
You could face felony DUI charges. In California, you may face a felony drunk driving charge if you have three or more prior DUI convictions within a 10-year period, your DUI caused injury or death to another person, or you have a prior felony DUI conviction.
