If you have one DUI conviction on your record, the penalties for a second or subsequent conviction will be much more severe.
Your vehicle can be forfeited starting with a second offense. Jail time ranges from 45 days for a second offense up to a year for a fourth offense. Fines range from $600 for a second offense to $15,000 for a fourth-offense DUI, which is a felony. That is why it is extremely important to have a knowledgeable DUI defense lawyer protecting your interests.
Rob McKinney has a long record of success in defending clients with previous DUI convictions. Since 1994, he has advocated for clients after their second, third, fourth or subsequent drunk driving arrest.
We Will Check The Facts
Thoroughness is one of the keys to success in these challenging cases. At our law firm, we always check to make sure that prior convictions were valid. In one case, our client was charged with a second-offense DUI. We checked the record and found that our client's first DUI case had been reduced to a non-DUI offense. Uncovering this fact allowed us to get the charges against our client reduced to a first-offense DUI.
We Know The Law
When possible, we may try to mitigate the severity of the penalties for a DUI conviction. Those convicted of a second-offense DUI can reduce the number of days they serve in jail by entering a drug or alcohol treatment program. Such opportunities are not offered; your attorney must know to request them. Mr. McKinney has a comprehensive knowledge of Tennessee DUI law and uses it to his clients' advantage.
We Will Defend You Vigorously
In addition to following the paper trail and seeking opportunities to lessen the penalties, we will mount a strong defense, analyzing the stop, examining videotape, challenging the blood or breath tests and using other appropriate avenues of defense.
