Repeat Offender DWI

Aggressive Virginia Repeat DWI Defense Lawyer

With all drunk driving offenses, there are penalties. These include fines, license suspension and jail time. However, when a prior conviction is present for driving while intoxicated (DWI/DUI), a repeat offense increases the severity of the penalties.

Defending a second DWI/DUI or even a third and beyond becomes an increasingly difficult task requiring great skill and strategy on the part of the criminal defense lawyer. However, at the law office of A. Mark Nicewicz, defense attorney Mark Nicewicz has built a solid record of success over the course of his 25-year legal career. Contact Mr. Nicewicz to schedule a free confidential consultation to discuss your repeat or felony DWI/DUI charges.

Repeat DWI Endangers Your Freedom and Future

Though the first and second DWI/DUI convictions are considered misdemeanor offenses, once a third is received, it and any subsequent convictions are felonies. With a felony, a person establishes a criminal record that may impact his or her future opportunities for employment, housing and education. Further, the penalties and consequences increase to potentially include:

  • Mandatory minimum jail sentences
  • Mandatory ignition interlock system
  • Longer suspension of driver’s license
  • Increased fines
  • Loss of right to vote
  • Loss of right to bear arms

Once you have been arrested and arraigned for repeat DWI/DUI charges, it is essential to obtain an aggressive defense attorney to immediately begin building a strong defense. Mr. Nicewicz is known for his tenacious stand on protecting the rights of his clients. He employs defense strategies that are customized to each client’s situation and may include challenging Breathalyzer and field sobriety test methods and results, the basis of the traffic stop and even police protocol.
