San Anselmo Second and Multiple DUIs Defense Attorney

Second and Third DUI Defense Lawyer Serving Marin County, California

If you have at least one prior DUI conviction and you are arrested again for drunk driving, another conviction will carry with it the potential for some harsh penalties such as fines, jail time, driver's license suspension, alcohol treatment, community service, DUI school, and higher auto insurance rates. Most prosecutors seek tough penalties for multiple DUI offenders, and if you are in this situation, you need a seasoned advocate on your side fighting hard to mitigate this situation as much as possible.

Since 1985, Burglin Law Offices, P.C. has successfully represented clients for second and multiple DUI defenses in Marin County and throughout Northern California.

Paul is one of only five DUI lawyers in the state who is Board-Certified in DUI Defense, and he is the attorney that prosecutors, judges, and DMV hearing officers call on when one of their friends or family members is in trouble and facing a multiple DUI conviction.

He thoroughly investigates the circumstances of the case and quickly identifies any weaknesses that can be used to help ensure a more favorable result. Drawing on his extensive experience and in-depth knowledge of this area of the law, Paul fights aggressively to reduce or eliminate the charges against you, so you can move forward with your life.

Penalties for Second and Multiple DUIs in California

Convictions for two or more DUIs within 10 years in California can be significant:

  • Second DUI Offense: Fines and penalties of up to $3,000 or more, 10 days to one year in jail, and up to a two-year license suspension.
  • Third DUI Offense: Fines and penalties of up to $3,000 or more, 120 days to one year in jail, and a three-year license revocation.
  • Fourth DUI Offense: Fines of up to $10,000 or more, 180 days to three years in jail, and a four-year license revocation.

This list is an example of non-enhanced penalties drunk drivers might face when they have multiple offenses. If there are aggravated circumstances, such as a multiple DUI incidents which resulted in serious injuries and/or fatalities, the punishment can be far worse.
