Persuasive Representation for Louisiana DWIs/DUIs

It is vital to contact legal counsel as soon as you have been arrested due to the time-sensitive nature of the suspension proceedings. Here are the minimum jail times for a DWI/DUI in Louisiana, determined by whether this is your first, second, or third offense:

  • First offense: 2 days jail minimum, or 48 hours community service
  • Second offense: 30 days jail minimum, or 2 days jail plus 30 days of community service
  • Third offense: 45 days jail minimum

Having us at your side throughout the process can help you keep your license, or get a conditional permit so that you can get to work.
