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) 902-1122 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.

  • Best lawyer hands down!

    “After 3 probation violations I was facing a minimum of 20 months in prison. At my first appearance, I witness Greg get one of his clients out of jail and trust me, his record and charges were outrageous. Naturally, I asked him for Greg's contact. I'm writing this review because Greg I was released from custody and was able to modify my probation to terms that makes sense! Not to mention, he somehow got me a withheld adjudication. In over 5 years on probation I've never had a lawyer fight for me so hard. Greg goes to war for his clients.”

    Client

  • Efficient and highly effective.

    “Greg was wonderful. Efficient and highly effective.”

  • I can sincerely attest to his effectiveness.

    “I highly recommend Gregory Rosenfeld to anyone as a criminal defense, federal crime, and appeals lawyer. I hired him as my lawyer and I am extremely satisfied with the results of his legal representation of me. He worked with me step by step in a diligent manner, ultimately getting my case dismissed. I can sincerely attest to his effectiveness.”

    Client

  • Great attorney!

    “Great attorney. Professional and knowledgeable. Does fantastic work for clients. Always produces the best possible result for clients.”

  • It's no wonder he was rated one of the top lawyers in the UNITED STATES!

    “I was faced with two second-degree felonies and a couple of third-degree felonies, and at times would stress to the point of anxiety attacks and breakdowns. Greg was always there to help me through it in any way he could. I called him after hours, on weekends, in the middle of the night, and he never hesitated to respond and assist me in whatever I needed help with. There is a reason why he is rated so highly on multiple platforms, with some of them regarded very prestigiously in the law community. He goes above and beyond to fight for you, and them beyond some more. Upon hiring Greg, he strategized a game plan, broke it down into simpler terms for me to understand, and through the course of a year, we executed that gam plan. Even with some curve balls thrown in, AKA unexpected issues, such as me catching a DUI while out on bail for 5 pending felonies, he was there for me, and reassured me that everything will be okay. The end result: Greg negotiated with the prosecutor to DROP the main felony charge, have them give me credit for the time I already served AND the days I spent in rehab, AND 3 years of probation, with the possibility of early termination at half, some community service, and restitution. NO other lawyer could have gotten this done. It is literally a miracle that I am not on house arrest right now, let alone incarcerated. Greg fought hard for me, and he achieved something that was close to a miracle. He is a godsend, and you can tell that he truly cares for you, as a person first and a client second. I would highly recommend hiring Greg for your legal issues. He is just short of a miracle worker, a very powerful, formidable and reputable lawyer to have on your side, and a true friend. He is definitely top three defense lawyers in palm beach, if not number one. But his compassion for the client and his genuine concern for you as a person, combined with his expertise, reputation, and skill sets make him by far the top lawyer in not only palm beach, but possibly south Florida.”

  • It gets no better than Greg Rosenfeld.

    “It gets no better than Greg Rosenfeld. I was facing close to 5 years and this guy managed to get me off. I fired my previous attorney and hired Greg. If you want results, someone to go to war for you, Greg is your guy. I send all my friends to him, and they send all their friends to Greg too.”

  • I was facing a life sentence and with the expertise of his firm the matter was settled with probation.

    “Greg was hired because of his great reviews, and thus has also performed extremely well on my behalf. I was facing a life sentence and with the expertise of his firm the matter was settled with probation. Thank you Mr. Rosenfeld for a job well down.”

  • 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...”

  • He is second to none as far as I'm concerned.

    “Greg is extremely dedicated to your case and his diligence in covering every possible angle is incredible. He actually cares about his client's welfare and works many long and hard hours researching your case. He is second to none as far as I'm concerned. He won my case for me against a very corrupt opponent. He communicates when he says he's going to and can be reached without delay. I would hire him again without hesitation.”
