Napa County DUI Lawyer for Second, Third, or Four Prior Convictions

Napa County Multiple DUI Offenses Attorney

Attorney for Multiple Drunk Driving Arrests in Napa County, CA

If you are arrested for drunk driving in Napa County and you have one or more prior convictions within the previous ten years (or a prior felony DUI conviction), the penalties are more severe than a first-time DUI arrest. California DUI laws are very hard on drunk driving offenders with prior arrests, and you may be looking at very severe consequences. If you are in this situation, it is important to have an experienced drunk driving defense lawyer in your corner who thoroughly understands the Napa County DUI process.

Since 1985, Attorney Paul Burglin has successfully represented motorists charged with their second or subsequent DUI offense in Napa. Attorney Burglin co-authors California Drunk Driving Law, a two-volume legal guide with numerous creative and proven legal defenses. This guide is commonly referred to as the "Bible of DUI defense", and it is frequently referenced by other drunk driving defense lawyers in the state. Paul Burglin is one of only five attorneys in the entire state of California who is Board-Certified by the National College of DUI Defense (as approved by the American Bar Association), and his extensive experience and proven track record of success make him the "go to" attorney for prosecutors, DMV hearing officers, and judges when someone close to them is in trouble for DUI.

Penalties for Multiple DUI Offenses in Napa County

If you have one or more drunk driving convictions within a ten-year period, the penalties become more severe with each subsequent offense:

  • 2 DUI Offenses: Two DUIs within 10 years can result in a minimum of 96 hours in jail and up one year, approximately $2,500 or more in fines and assessments, an 18-month drinking driver school, installation of an Ignition Interlock Device in your vehicle, and a two-year driver's license suspension.
  • 3 DUI Offenses: Three DUIs in 10 years can result in four months to one year in jail, approximately $2,500 or more in fines and penalties, a habitual traffic violator designation, a mandatory Ignition Interlock Device in your vehicle, and a three-year driver's license revocation.
