Repeated DUI or DWI Offenses

All DUI/DWI offenses are serious, but subsequent offenses are especially harsh if you are convicted. Your auto insurance premiums will increase sharply and your coverage may be terminated. Your employment and educational opportunities may be limited by repeat DUI/DWI convictions on your record and your driver’s license could be revoked.

I am attorney Chuck Franklin, and I have experience with repeat DUI/DWI defense as well as felony DUI defense since 1987. I understand the severe nature of repeat DUI penalties and will work diligently to reduce the charges, get the case dismissed when possible, or present your defense in front of a jury.
