Delaware Second Offense DUI

Defending Subsequent DUI Charges In Delaware

Defending the second offense DUI charge in Delaware proves much more difficult than a first offense. Do not face your second offense DUI without the aid of an experienced Delaware Drunk Driving Lawyer. The penalties are significantly more severe for subsequent offense DWI charges in Delaware.

Also, due to having a previous DUI on your record pursuing a plea option may be difficult. The length of time between the first offense and second offense, your BAC levels, and your criminal record will dictate how your attorney handles your DUI case.

Retaining Mr. Phillips as your Delaware DWI Lawyer will ensure that your rights are protected and that the best possible outcome is achieved.
