Strong Defense For Second And Third DUI Charges

When facing a second or third charge of driving under the influence within 10 years of a prior conviction, the situation is extremely serious. In Georgia, the penalties and costs associated with multiple DUI convictions are much more severe. When so much is at stake, having an experienced attorney to represent you and protect your interests is more important than ever.

At The Law Offices of Eric J. Tatum, LLC, we are committed to providing our clients facing second and third DUI charges with the best DUI defense possible. To do this, we conduct a detailed analysis of every step of the stop, to identify inconsistencies, potential errors in breath and blood tests results as well as violations of our clients' constitutional rights. We know how to tell whether the arresting officer actually observed indications of intoxication or was simply reciting a list of common signs. Call us now at 770-648-2789.

If Convicted, Penalties Are Harsh

There is no such thing as a minor DUI. While charges of a second or third DUI are still considered misdemeanors, the potential punishment for a conviction increases with each subsequent arrest. With jail time, hefty fines and lengthy license suspensions on the table, you need an attorney who will fight passionately on your behalf to minimize any potential consequences.

Additional punishments for subsequent convictions include community service, completion of a substance abuse program and installation of an ignition interlock device. As with any DUI arrest, deadlines may apply to reserve your right to a hearing — so time is of the essence.

Unlike first offenses, those convicted of a second or third DUI have to have their name and photograph published in the newspaper. So not only is your freedom and ability to drive at stake but your reputation is also on the line. At The Law Offices of Eric J. Tatum, LLC, we work closely with our clients to develop a sound defense strategy. Whether it means negotiating a deal or taking a case to trial, we always have your best interests in mind.
