I have handled thousands of DUI cases through my career. To me, a 2nd time DUI is extremely important to get the ball rolling as soon as possible.
A 2nd time DUI has more complexity because of the following:
-Potential probation violations (if someone is still on probation)
-Mandatory jail time
-2 year license suspension
-Likely Ignition interlock device (IID) in the car.
The key in these cases is to blend the APS / DMV hearings with your court case. How you proceed in the DMV portion of the case directly effects the court side.
The proactive defense approach our firm uses is best suited for these cases. There is no doubt these situations is not suited to going in with a Public Defender because the DMV and the court are intertwined. The key is to get the ball rolling.

The APS (DMV) hearing comes first. You subpoena as much evidence as possible. We examine the evidence with the client and put best efforts to win the hearing. We then take the results of the hearing and once the client chooses the route they want to proceed in terms of the DMV we head to court with a game plan.
