If you have a prior conviction for drunk driving in Denver or the surrounding areas in Colorado, the police and prosecutor will likely treat you very harshly.  There is little sympathy for repeat DUI offenders in Colorado, especially Denver, as the authorities feel the message just did not get through the first time.  Now, more than ever, you need an aggressive and skilled DUI/DWI defense attorney by your side.
