Prior DUI Convictions

(404) 816-4440

Gainesville DUI Lawyer


If you have a prior DUI conviction in the past 10 years, your case can become more complex and involve more serious punishment. Georgia lawmakers have very harsh penalties for individuals who commit more than one DUI offense. If this is your second, third, or fourth DUI charge, you should contact a Gainesville DUI attorney immediately. Fast action must be taken to defend your charge, as a conviction could mean that you will have to serve a long period in jail. For example, if you have just been charged with your fourth DUI offense, you will be charged with a felony, possibly a jail sentence of up to five years and you may lose your license for up to 10 years.


When you have multiple DUI convictions, it is critical that you have an experienced legal team on your side to protect your rights. Every feature of your case will be thoroughly investigated and evaluated to determine the best course of action for you. You must have strong legal representation if you are facing a second, third or fourth DUI offense. A conviction can lead to a long jail sentence, steep fines, community service and a suspended license.

If you are convicted of multiple DUI offenses, you will have your license suspended for at least one year - at that point you may qualify for a restricted license. A restricted license allows you to drive to work, school, and medical appointments. With this license you will be required to have an ignition interlock device installed in your car; this device forces you to provide a breath test before you can start the engine. This is a very expensive machine and must be installed in every car that you drive.
