Multiple DUI Lawyer in Long Beach
Aggressive Representation for Consecutive DUI Offenses
Driving under the influence (DUI) is considered a “priorable offense” in California. This means that each time an individual is convicted of DUI or a “wet reckless” offense, the severity of the punishment increases. This results in longer jail sentences, costlier fines, lengthy probations, and harsher license suspension periods.
If you are facing a DUI charge and have had a previous DUI-related conviction at any point in your life, it is important for you to secure the legal guidance of a criminal defense attorney who has experience handling complex cases like these. At the Law Office of Peacock & Le Beau, we put 40+ years of combined experience at our clients’ disposal. We have handled thousands of cases with success in Long Beach and nearby communities in Southern California.

Penalties for Multiple DUI Offenses
If a second DUI charge occurs within 10 years of a previous conviction, the individual may expect a harsher punishment. In California, there are additional punishments for two, three, and four or more DUI convictions. In many cases, having four or more DUI convictions may be considered a felony offense. Such cases require the assistance of an experienced legal professional.
A second DUI offense may result in:
- $1,000 in additional fines
- 1 year in jail
- 2 years of license suspension
- 30 months of treatment program
A third DUI offense adds the following:
- 3 years of license suspension
A fourth DUI offense adds the following:
- 3 years in prison
- 4 years of license suspension
Although the exact punishments of each case depend on individual circumstances, it is still imperative that your rights and your driving privileges are protected through the procedure. An inexperienced DUI attorney could easily mishandle your case, resulting in harsher penalties than you deserve.
