Multiple DUI With Halley, No Concern is Too Small

Oakland County Multiple DUI Lawyer

In Michigan, the impact of a DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs) can be severe and life-changing, especially when it comes to multiple offenses. A repeat offense within a specific timeframe can significantly impact the charges and penalties you face. 

Like other states, Michigan employs a “lookback period” to determine the severity of the punishment for repeat DUI offenders. This period is seven years for a second DUI offense and a lifetime for a third or subsequent offense. 

Michigan's penalties for repeat DUI offenses are severe, with potential jail time, hefty fines, and driver's license revocation for years. Navigating these complex charges alone can be daunting. At HJP Legal, our experienced criminal defense lawyer can be your strongest advocate. 

Attorney Halley Peters understands the intricacies of the law, how the look-back period impacts your case, and potential defenses specific to repeat offenses. She can fight to minimize penalties, negotiate for reduced charges, and aggressively pursue your best interests in these complex cases.
