Chicago Multiple DUI Attorney

Chicago Second DUI Defense Lawyers

Lawyers for Clients Facing Second or Third Time Charges of DUI in Cook County

The State of Illinois is well-known across the country for its strict laws, especially as they relate to drunk and drugged driving. If you have already been convicted of charges of driving under the influence (DUI), you know how serious the penalties can be. When you are facing charges for a second or third DUI, the impact on your life and your family can be even more severe. The experienced Chicago multiple DUI attorneys at Luisi Legal Group are ready and willing to help you find a workable solution to a potentially life-changing situation.

Legal Counsel for 2nd DUI Defense in Bucktown

As in most areas of criminal law, the penalties for a conviction on DUI charges are dependent upon the circumstances of your case and your previous DUI history. Once you have been convicted of DUI, that conviction will remain on your record for the rest of your life. If you are charged with a second DUI, you will be treated as a repeat offender, leading to significantly increased legal consequences.

A second-offense DUI conviction is, at the very minimum, a Class A misdemeanor, but may be prosecuted as a felony in certain situations. As a misdemeanor, a second DUI conviction is punishable by the following:

  • Mandatory minimum imprisonment of five days, or 240 hours of community service;
  • Up to one year in prison;
  • Fines up to $2,500;
  • Revocation of driving privileges for five years; and
  • Required participation in substance abuse programs.

Chicago Attorneys for 3rd DUI Charges

At Luisi Legal Group, our experienced Chicago multiple DUI attorneys understand that everyone makes mistakes. We also realize that while first and second DUI convictions are certainly serious, a third offense can be devastating. A third DUI offense is automatically prosecuted as a Class 2 felony, regardless of the circumstances of the case. A conviction on third offense can result in penalties of:

  • Mandatory minimum imprisonment of ten days, or 480 hours of community service;
  • Up to three to seven years in prison;
  • Fines up to $25,000;
  • Revocation of driving privileges for ten years; and
  • Required participation in substance abuse programs.
