At John M Lane Law, we understand that facing a repeat DUI/DWI offense can be both daunting and life-altering.

With a compassionate approach and a deep understanding of the complexities of DUI/DWI laws, we are your staunchest allies in times of need.---

Being charged with a repeat DUI/DWI offense often carries more severe penalties than a first-time offense. It is a signal to the courts that previous consequences did not deter recurrent behavior, and thus, may result in harsher punishments. At John M Lane Law, we recognize the seriousness of your situation and are prepared to mount a formidable defense on your behalf. Our goal is to minimize the negative consequences while acknowledging the opportunity for rehabilitative measures.

Each case we undertake is met with meticulous attention to detail and an unwavering commitment to advocacy. Our experienced attorneys are adept at navigating the legal intricacies involved in repeat DUI/DWI offenses, offering personalized strategies designed to protect your rights and your future. We pledge to stand by your side, offering support and legal counsel every step of the way.

Penalties for repeat DUI/DWI offenses often include longer jail time, higher fines, extended probation periods, and more restrictive conditions on driving privileges. We are deeply versed in the legal statutes that govern these penalties and use this knowledge to potentially alleviate the severity of sentences handed down to our clients.

Our team is determined to scrutinize every angle of the charges against you, question the evidence, and consider all procedural aspects of your case. This comprehensive approach can lead to a reduction of charges or even a full dismissal, depending on the specifics of your unique situation.

In defending those accused of repeat DUI/DWI, we employ a range of strategies including challenging the legality of a traffic stop, the accuracy of breathalyzer or field sobriety tests, and the overall conduct of the arresting officers. Our persistence in pursuing these avenues can significantly impact the outcome of your case.

We understand that not all DUI/DWI arrests are conducted lawfully and that procedural mistakes can be made. It is our job to identify these flaws and present them convincingly in your defense, and rest assured, this is something we excel at.

At John M Lane Law, we believe in a collaborative approach. Working with us means that you have a team of legal experts pooling their collective knowledge and resources in your defense. Our methodical and thorough preparation is designed to leave no stone unturned.

We take pride in our ability to communicate clearly and effectively, ensuring that you are kept abreast of developments in your case. Transparency and trust form the cornerstone of our relationship with our clients.


Prior convictions undoubtedly complicate DUI/DWI cases. However, every situation has its unique context, and at John M Lane Law, we delve into the specifics of your history to best utilize it in your defense. Whether your prior offenses occurred recently or many years ago, we consider all relevant factors to build a robust defense strategy.

Mounting a defense for repeat DUI/DWI charges requires a thorough understanding of how prior convictions may influence the current case. Our lawyers are experts in dissecting this aspect of the law, helping to ensure your past is not unfairly held against you.

Repeat offenses often trigger sentencing enhancements which can elevate the severity of the punishment. Knowing how these enhancements work, and where there may be room for argumentation against them, is vital for a sound defense plan.

We will fight to ensure that enhancements are accurately applied and seek opportunities to counter them where possible. In the legal system, there are often areas for negotiation, and with John M Lane Law by your side, every opportunity for leniency is pursued rigorously.

Alternative sentencing options such as treatment programs, community service, or electronic monitoring, may be suitable for certain cases. These alternatives can help mitigate the impact on your life while satisfying legal requirements.

Our proficiency in proposing and negotiating these alternatives can be instrumental in providing a resolution that benefits all parties involved, especially for those demonstrating remorse and a commitment to change.

The elapsed time between DUI/DWI offenses can impact your case. Our attorneys investigate this timing to potentially lessen the weight of your prior convictions during sentencing.

By presenting a clear, fact-based timeline, we advocate for our clients' growth and positive changes made over time, arguing against disproportionate penalties that don't accurately reflect their current situation.


No two DUI/DWI cases are the same, and at John M Lane Law, we believe in a defense that recognizes the individuality of your circumstances. Our experience has shown us that even within the realm of repeat offenses, the diversity of situations is vast, and each deserves its own distinct approach.

Whether dealing with cases involving aggravating factors or finding mitigating elements, our ability to adapt our defense strategies ensures that we always advocate for the most favorable outcome possible. We are here to safeguard your interests and to represent your case with the tailored attention it demands.

Challenging the evidence presented against you is often a critical aspect of your defense. Our seasoned lawyers meticulously analyze the prosecution's case, seeking out inconsistencies or irregularities in the evidence or test results.

If there are any grounds to dispute the prosecution's claims, we will aggressively pursue these in your defense. Our dedication to detail can sometimes uncover avenues for challenge that less experienced eyes may miss.
