If This Isn’t Your First DUI, Prepare For A Real Fight
The state of Georgia takes all DUI cases very seriously. Prosecutors often seek maximum penalties and show no mercy to anyone who has prior DUI convictions on his or her record. If you are facing your second, third or fourth DUI charge, it is vital that you speak to an experienced Chatham County defense attorney as soon as possible.

I Will Take Immediate Action On Your Behalf
In Savannah and elsewhere in the state, individuals charged with DUI only have 10 days to protect their driving privileges. After your free consultation with me, I will work quickly to file all necessary paperwork and help you avoid the almost-immediate license suspension period. Once this step is complete, I will begin analyzing and investigating your situation, including:
- Reviewing the police report
- Obtaining video of the pull over
- Ensuring all sobriety tests and BAC tests were properly administered
- Scrutinizing whether the arresting officer had probable cause
- Reviewing anything else specific to your situation

Understanding The Potential Penalties Of Repeat DWI/DUI
Several factors influence the potential penalties you face when you are charged with your second or third DUI. These factors include the number of prior DUI offenses, how recently they occurred, whether there was a child in the vehicle at the time of the offense, the exact level of alcohol or drugs in your system, and whether an accident or injury occurred.
Depending on your specific situation, you could face penalties such as:
- An extended prison sentence
- Mandatory minimum jail time
- Alcohol treatment courses
- Thousands of dollars in fines
- Revocation of your license
- Installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle
In addition to court-ordered penalties, a multiple DUI offense can also affect your ability to obtain or retain employment, obtain housing, and have a negative impact on your home and personal life. For all of these reasons, hiring an experienced and aggressive DUI defense attorney is vital to your freedom and your future.
