Grand Junction Multiple DUI Defense Lawyers


We Handle Subsequent DUI & DWAI & DUID Offenses

Colorado takes the crime of impaired driving very seriously. Even a first-time driving under the influence (DUI) charge can lead to a suspended license, significant fines, and possible jail time. These penalties often prevent a driver from making the same mistake again, but not always.

If you’ve been charged with a subsequent DUI, the penalties increase in severity with each episode. It is vital that you contact the experienced Grand Junction DUI attorneys at Peters & Nolan, LLC. Call (970) 243-4357 for a free case evaluation.

  • Mandatory community service of up to 120 hours.
  • Required to complete a qualified drug and alcohol education and therapy program (which the driver must pay for). Failure to complete this program can result in 5 days to 1 year in jail.
