Help for People Accused of DUI and Multiple DUI/DWI

Whether you have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) for the first time or you are a repeat offender, you face serious consequences. Those consequences are even more severe if you are accused of causing injury or death in a car accident. You can get help from a local lawyer who knows the courts that handle these matters and will give you personal attention. You do not need to turn to a big law firm from outside of the area that is more concerned with getting the case over with than they are with getting you through this.

My name is J. David Markham. I am a Lakeport DUI defense attorney, working out of my office in Lakeport. I provide DUI/DWI defense representation to people in that community, as well as Clearlake and the surrounding parts of Lake and Mendocino Counties. Contact me for a free initial consultation.

Criminal Defense Against DUI and Drivers License Suspension

For many, the most damaging penalty associated with DUI/DWI is drivers' license suspension. This is particularly true for truck drivers and other commercial drivers who rely on their ability to drive to do their job. Even the four-month suspension that happens automatically is long enough for a career to be lost.

I know how to defend you and your license. One of the strategies I may use is to negotiate a reduced charge. For example, wet reckless is an alcohol-related reckless driving charge that is less severe than DUI/DWI. This charge does not require license suspension.

Multiple DUI/DWI Charge

If you are facing a second, third or multiple DUI/DWI charge, potential criminal penalties are even more severe. You could face incarceration, increased fines and even felony charges. Now is the time to seek quality legal defense.
