Defense Against Felony DUI Charges

Felony DUI Is A Serious Criminal Charge

If you have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) and it is your third offense — no matter how long ago the other drunk driving convictions occurred — you will automatically be charged with a felony. However, there may be a number of viable defenses that can be raised against a felony drunk driving charge.

My name is David G. Moore, and I am a former prosecutor turned felony DUI defense lawyer who represents clients accused of OUIL, OWI and DUI, including felony drunk driving. I use my experience to gain insight into how a prosecutor may approach a case and then use that information to build a strong defense strategy for my client. I invite you to contact me online to schedule a free consultation. You can also call 269-216-4573. I can meet with you evenings and weekends, as well as during regular office hours.

The Consequences Of A Felony Conviction Are Severe

Consequences you face for a third-time OUIL, OWI or DUI include:

  • Jail time from 30 days up to five years
  • Fines from $500 to $5,000
  • 30 to 180 days' community service
  • Up to a five-year driver's license revocation
  • Confiscation of your license plate and denial of vehicle registration
  • The court probably mandating your vehicle to be forfeited

Your future and your freedom are too important to not retain a qualified felony drunk driving defense lawyer.

Asking The Hard Questions To Help You Build A Strong Defense

As your criminal defense attorney, I review every aspect of the case, identifying key weaknesses in the prosecution's case as well as the strengths in your specific situation:

  • Did the police arrest you in a constitutionally valid manner or were your constitutional rights violated?
  • Was the breath test equipment functioning properly, and did the police officer administer the test properly?
  • Were you informed of your rights?
  • Were there contributing factors other than alcohol that caused you to fail the field sobriety test?
