If you have been arrested for a DUI and are now facing multiple DUI charges, you should start considering your options for defense as soon as possible to do everything you can to protect your rights and driving privileges.

Call (561) 475-5550 to connect with the Law Offices of Greg Rosenfeld to speak with a highly-acclaimed and highly-rated West Palm Beach DUI lawyer about what to do next to fight your charges.

Penalties for Multiple DUIs in Florida

It is crucial that you take a DUI arrest seriously, even if it is your first charge, but especially if there are other charges on your record. Florida significantly increases penalties for each subsequent charge and conviction. You should treat the situation with urgency and contact Attorney Rosenfeld at your first opportunity.

The maximum penalties for second, third, and subsequent DUIs in Florida include:

  • Second DUI offense:
    • Incarceration for up to 9 months
    • Fines up to $4,000
    • License suspension up to 5 years
    • Ignition interlock device (IID) installation
    • Alcohol and driving safety courses
    • Community service
  • Third and consequent DUI offense:
    • Up to 5 years’ incarceration, minimum 30 days
    • Up to $5,000 in fines
    • Up to 10 years of license suspension
    • IID installation, safety courses, and community service

Florida’s DUI Lookback Period

If you have one or more DUI convictions on your record, any subsequent conviction within the next five years will be considered an additional offense. This five-year stretch is known as the lookback or washout period. Penalties may scale predictably with each subsequent conviction. Some penalties may increase for a subsequent DUI conviction even when the previous conviction is outside of the five-year lookback period.

  • If you need a lawyer to do what you think cannot be done, this is the one you need to call.

    “Let me start by saying if youre looking for a lawyer, stop here. This man 100 percent saved my life. I'm 29 years old with a history of addiction and a drug related prior. I was facing a 3rd degree felony that had been dragged through the courts for a year before I called Greg. The prosecutor hated me, and even though I got my life together he had made it very clear that my chances were up and I had done too little too late. Thinking this was it, I dropped my other lawyer and called Greg off of a recommendation--a last minute shot in the dark. I wish I called him from the start. With little to no notice, Greg worked his magic and I now have the chance to make something of myself and continue down my chosen career path, record free. Every court officer I have spoken with was in disbelief over the outcome, I was told it was a "major win," but that was something I already knew. I thought the consequences of my past were going to dictate my future, and he worked tirelessly to make sure that didn't happen. I told him my story, I showed him how hard I work, and he believed in me and fought for me. From the bottom of my heart, I will never be able to express my gratitude. If you need a lawyer to do what you think cannot be done, this is the one you need to call. Although he more than fulfilled his duties, he has still remained just a phone call away--always answering--to help me through the final phase of my case. You can't put a price on peace of mind, but if you could, he should start charging double. I'm not rich, but I got a wealthy man's lawyer. He worked with me there too. Thank you Greg, thank you, thank you, thank you...”

  • Best criminal defense attorney, hands down!

    “First I'd like to thank Greg for the amazing job he's done for me and my family. Greg was recommended to me through a family friend and thank God for that. Currently I have several felony arrests and not one felony conviction on my record. Greg has gone the extra mile in every situation where I've used his services. The genuine Level of care for his clients is evident from the first meeting you have with him. In my situation anything Greg said he would be able to for my case he did. I was confident throughout the entire legal process that the outcome would be the best possible given my charges. I would recommend his services to anyone who is in any kind of legal predicament where representation is needed. Thank you Greg for everything you've done for me!!!”
