charges, convictions, & defenses
DUI Fourth & Subsequent Charges
DUI convictions have severe punishments and life-altering consequences. A DUI conviction is not expungeable – meaning it will remain with you for a lifetime. Thus, it is paramount to hire the right attorney to defend these, keep the punishments to a minimum and prevent these convictions from being on your record.
Collins Legal’s DUI defense team is well-versed in this field. We help our clients be part of the statistic that learns from their mistake and never reoffends. A better tomorrow is a safer tomorrow.
