For a first offense, the law dictates a minimum jail sentence of two days, a fine, DUI school, plus probation, if convicted. If you are convicted a second time within ten years, the sentence is a minimum of ten days. Unfortunately, the average jail sentence for a second DUI offense for the Greater Bay Area is in excess of 30 days. A third conviction will lead to a minimum of 120 days or more of jail time. If there was an accident and someone was injured, then you may be charged with felony drunk driving, which carries a lengthy jail–or in some instances state prison–sentence, even for a first offense.

These harsh penalties are only part of the punishment, which includes loss of your driver’s license and serious financial consequences. We will do everything possible to help you beat the first offense and make sure you are not exposed to any possible jail or prison time. This may involve challenging the DUI in court or working to reduce the charge and avoid jail time, and the prejudice of a DUI offense. If you already have a DUI conviction and are accused of a second or third offense, we will actively seek to keep you out of jail and obtain the best possible result.
