Second DUI

Second DUI Defense Lawyer in Chicago

Chicago Multiple DUI Attorney

Driving under the influence (DUI) is defined as either having a .08% or greater blood alcohol content (BAC) or being impaired by drugs or alcohol to the extent that your driving is affected. Law enforcement officers can test for DUI by having you submit to a chemical test, either with breath, blood, or urine, or by having you perform a field sobriety test. Even if you pass these tests, an officer can arrest you for drunk driving if he has reason to believe that you are not capable of safely operating a vehicle.

A second DUI charge is especially frightening because of the mandatory minimum sentences and the fact that the cards are stacked against you. A DUI defense lawyer at the Law Offices of Mitch Furman can provide you with experienced and aggressive legal representation.
