Forsyth County DUI Lawyer
A repeat offender can expect harsh penalties in DUI cases. State lawmakers have increased penalties for those who have prior convictions, as a deterrent. A 3rd DUI can result in up to 12 month in jail, and up to $5,000 in fines. There is a real possibility of having a 5 year suspended license. You will be forced to spend a minimum of 30 days in jail, and will be required to complete an alcohol treatment program or may be forced to get a clinical evaluation regarding alcoholism or alcohol addiction. You also will become a news story in your local paper, which will expose your conviction and your name to all that live in your local community. It is imperative that you contact a Forsyth County DUI attorney from our firm at once if you are in this precarious legal situation.
Why You Need an Experienced DUI Defense Lawyer on Your Side
Our founding attorney, Richard S. Lawson, is a former DUI prosecutor. With more than 20 years of experience, and a wealth of knowledge regarding DUI, we believe our firm is the one to contact. We are focused exclusively on DUI defense; we are not involved in any other area of practice. We have developed powerful resources and understanding of the science of DUI that can be of great benefit to you. A third DUI offense is a very serious legal matter, and it is necessary to have defense counsel that knows their business, inside out. A less experienced attorney may ask you for payment and then just tell you to plead guilty.
Our firm takes the time to carefully review every aspect of your case. We identify the errors in police procedure, from the police stop through to testing and onto the arrest. There are countless cases we have taken on - and we have resolved over 5,000 DUI cases - that have serious flaws that we brought to the attention of the prosecutor or the court. We know the law, we know the courts, and we are focused on DUI defense. We urge you to contact us immediately if you have been arrested and have 2 prior convictions on your criminal record.
