Legal Defense Against Felony DUI Charges
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.
At David G. Moore, Attorney at Law, our lawyers are ready to explore all available options when we take your case. We are guided by David G. Moore, a former prosecutor turned felony DUI defense lawyer who represents clients accused of OUIL, OWI and DUI, including felony drunk driving. Taking a collaborative approach, we use our experience to gain insight into how a prosecutor may approach a case and then use that information to build a strong defense strategy.
We invite you to contact our firm online to schedule a free consultation. You can also call 269-216-4573. A member of our team 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 team, we 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?
