Repeat DUI Offenses
Second DUI and Felony DUI Defense in Florida
You may have been here before, but that doesn’t make a second DUI offense any easier. If you are accused of drunk driving for the second time, the penalties you face could be life-altering. The loss of your driver’s license, hefty fines and jail time could be a real possibility. Select an experienced drunk driving defense lawyer prepared to protect your rights, even when the stakes are high.
Applying Decades of Experience to Fight Felony DUI Charges
I am William Wallshein, a Florida felony DUI defense lawyer with more than 29 years of experience. Before focusing exclusively on criminal defense, I was Florida state prosecutor for five years. I know firsthand the potential ramifications individuals face when accused of a second DUI, third DUI or fourth DUI offenses. I will conduct a thorough investigation to try and uncover any evidence that can be used in your favor. If law enforcement violated your constitutional rights, I will fight for a dismissal.
Based on my years of experience, I know when to fight the charges or negotiate for a reduction in penalties. I am committed to helping you regain control of your life, while seeking to mitigate any ramifications. Contact my West Palm Beach defense firm to learn how I can help you fight the charges during a free consultation.
Aggressively Defending Against Second-Offense DUI Allegations
Whether you are facing first-time DUI charges or second-offense DUI allegations, law enforcement must have a valid reason to pull you over under suspicion of drunk driving, such as:
- Driving unusually close to other motorists
- Swerving between lanes
- Driving unusually slow
- Driving at night without the use of headlights
If law enforcement did not have a probable reason to pull you over for drunk driving, this may be cause for a dismissal. I will also challenge the results from the field sobriety test, known to test individual’s cognitive and physical capabilities instead of his or her blood alcohol content.
I understand the technicalities behind Breathalyzer test results. If the machine was not properly maintained or the arresting officer failed to use the Breathalyzer correctly, the calibrations may have inaccurately depicted your blood alcohol content. When defending against misdemeanor and felony DUI charge, I understand the high stakes my clients are up against. I never take DUI charges at face value. I will aggressively evaluate the evidence obtained against you in an effort to expose any errors or false assumptions made by law enforcement.
