Repeat DUI Offenses in Louisiana

Louisiana takes drunk driving very seriously. Even a first-time conviction carries serious consequences, but having multiple DUI/DWI convictions on your record can severely impact all aspects of your life: your freedom, finances, reputation, job opportunities and more.

If you have been charged with a repeat DUI/DWI offense, turn to the Metairie law firm of Sanjay K. Biswas, Attorney at Law. Mr. Biswas has been a New Orleans resident since 1980, so he understands the area, the laws and the courts. You can rely on him to make every effort for mitigating the charges against you.

Attorney Biswas Will Fight For You

If the police overstepped their bounds, he may be able to get the charges against you reduced or even dismissed.
