It can be so frustrating to be arrested for second DUI offenses not minding whether you have previous experience with driving under influence (DUI). It is certain that for any DUI arrest, there’s a serious accompanying sequence whether first or second DUI case.

Penalties for consequences of second DUI offenses are higher and tougher compared to first DUI offense.  Any driving under influence (DUI) offenses comes with major consequences and these consequences are dependent on the level of your blood alcohol concentration (BAC).

Whichever way, there are ways with which you can reduce your second DUI charges or even get the case dismissed. The steps are:


Most often when you are in a police detention, the police come close under the guise of showing some concerns, but this is not always the main intention.

The police might try convincing you by telling you that there are a lot to be lost due to second DUI arrest. The police might go to the extent of prodding you to open up with all the details about your experiences prior to your arrest.

Opening up to the police is not the problem; the problem is that you can’t count on the police for your full protection. For this reason alone you need to be mindful of whatever you discuss with the police when arrested.


Hiring an experienced DUI defense attorney is very important if you are striving for soft landing or even getting the case dismissed. The attorney will help you prepare all the necessary documents you need to come out the case.

DUI attorney also plays an integral role in your discussion with the police. Never make the mistake of speaking to the police in the absence of your attorney as anything you say can be used against you in the court of law.

Hiring the right attorney for you second driving under influence (DUI) really makes all the difference. Don’t hesitate to contact the Law Office of Arash Hashemi for your confidential consultation about second driving under influence.


Consequences of DUI vary depending on the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level at the time of your arrest. Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level under .10 can land you a fine up to $2,500, a community service, jail term of up to 6 months, alcohol safety school and one year of ignition interlock mandate.

It might be tempting to accept any deal offered to you in a course of seeking for soft landing when arrested, but for no reason should you try such. A deal that seem good in the immediate aftermath of your arrest can come back to bite you hard. Let your attorney help walk you through the pros and cons of accepting any deal.

A second DUI arrest can be an inconvenient development, hiring an experienced DUI defense attorney who knows the ins and outs of the court and how to navigate DUI charges is your best course of action.
