A third DUI offense is a felony, generally resulting in mandatory incarceration. Our Detroit DUI Lawyers have successfully represented many drivers charged with DUI third offenses and negotiated and litigated the charges down to a misdemeanor with no jail sentence. Please contact our Firm if you are facing these charges.
