Top Ten Questions > From Multiple Offenders

9. What can I do to minimize damage?

AA attendanceSolano County DUI lawyers commonly advise that one of the primary ways to limit the adverse effects of a new multiple offense DUI arrest is to be prepared for the worst outcome, but be ready to fight first for the best possible result, such as dismissal, or striking a prior offense, or reduction of charges. Actively prepare for legal issues which may prevail in the current case, by carefully reviewing discussions on this site under Ten Tips For the First 48 Hours and then Ten Tips For Fighting a DUI.

If no viable defenses are presented, then to reduce the effects of a multiple offense DUI conviction, early consideration may be advised regarding substantial efforts to demonstrate a commitment to sobriety, which are outlined in our Solano County DUI Lawyer discussion, "Fix Trigger Problems" under Ten Tips for Easing the Consequences of a DUI. If a conviction appears to be likely, then review the discussion about "Jail Alternatives" under Ten Tips for Easing the Consequences of a DUI. Consult with a Fairfield, Vallejo or Vacaville DUI lawyer about your specific case.


Any result portrayed was dependent on the facts of that case, and the results will differ if based on different facts.
