Multiple DUIs


At the Fort Lauderdale Law Offices of Lawrence B. Wolk & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we represent individuals from Broward County and South Florida who have been arrested and charged with DUI, regardless of whether this is a first offense or there have been multiple convictions. Florida has some of the toughest DUI laws in the Union, and Broward, Dade, and Palm Beach judges are known to be heavy-handed when dealing with defendants who have prior convictions. However, the attorneys at Lawrence B. Wolk & Associates are committed to making sure that our clients receive a fair trial—prior convictions notwithstanding.

Attorneys Representing Clients with Prior DUI Convictions

Whether you were convicted on your prior DUI arrest or the charges were dropped, your criminal defense attorney probably advised you that the stakes increase with each subsequent DUI/DWI arrest. Furthermore, every time that you refuse to provide a breath or urine sample, your Florida driving privileges can be suspended for an increasing length of time. Whether this is your first DUI arrest, your second one with a prior conviction, or you have multiple past DUI convictions, it’s imperative that you take your criminal defense seriously. Choosing a thorough and professional Florida DUI criminal defense attorney is the key to your continued liberty and the restoration of your driving privileges. Contact the Broward County criminal defense lawyers of Lawrence B. Wolk & Associates. Together, our team of attorneys can build an ironclad strategy to defend your rights in a Broward, Dade, or Palm Beach courthouse.

Fort Lauderdale and Broward DUI Defense Attorneys Fighting For your Rights

If you’ve previously been arrested for DUI in Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, or anywhere else in South Florida, you already know what’s at stake. Just because you have a prior conviction, however, does not mean that you are guilty of your current charges. The state prosecuting attorney still has to prove that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in front of a Broward, Dade, or Palm Beach judge. The attorneys of Lawrence B. Wolk and associates are dedicated to the fight to keep our clients out of jail. To schedule an appointment in our Fort Lauderdale law office, contact us at (888) 965-5529.
