Attorneys Ready To Help You Fight Repeat DUI Charges

Any second DUI offense or beyond is treated more severely and will incur greater penalties than first-time DUI offenders. If you are facing charges related to repeat DUI, the penalties will be determined by the number of prior DUI offenses on your criminal history, the magnitude of these prior DUI convictions, and your blood alcohol content (BAC). No matter what charges you are facing, the attorneys at Chieppor & Egner LLC can protect your rights and help you understand your legal options.
