My name is Attorney Julia Simmons. I am THE ONLY attorney in the State of California that I know of that focuses on multiple offense DUI cases. Plenty claim that they focus on multiple offense DUIs, but this is not true. 95% of my cases involve a 2nd DUI, 3rd DUI or 4th DUI and Felony DUI.
I have an organized set plan how to attack and defend 2nd DUIs, 3rd DUIs, 4th DUIs, and Felony DUIs in Los Angeles, California. Meet with me and see the difference between my firm and other firms who merely claim they focus on multiple offense DUI cases.
If this is your second DUI arrest within the last 10 years, you've got twice as much as stake. Not only are you looking at a possible 1 year loss of your drivers license, you are looking at possible jail time.
If you are still on probation while you obtained an additional DUI, you are in violation of the terms of your probation, and could seek additional jail time for the probation violation, which means your not only looking at the possible jail time as a result of your new DUI arrest, you'll have to face the judge on your prior DUI for the probation violation as well.
Unlike some first DUI offenses, for a second DUI and third DUI case, the difference between having a DUI attorney represent you in court will make a drastic difference in the consequences of your DUI case.
If you have had 2 prior DUI convictions within the past 10 years and this is your 3rd DUI arrest, the statutory minimum jail time is 120 days. In additional to the jail time, you court could deem you a habitual DUI offender and subsequently suspend your drivers license to up to 10 years.
Thereby the consequences of a third DUI offense are SEVERE, but you must KNOW THIS, 120 days spent in actual jail and the 10 years suspension of your drivers license, can be avoided with an experienced DUI attorney who is dedicated to keep you out of jail and behind the wheel.
