Driving under the influence, most commonly referred to as DUI, is a crime that occurs when a driver operates a vehicle (car, truck, motorcycle, boat, or even a bicycle) while with a blood alcohol level of .08% or greater or while his or her normal abilities are impaired by alcohol or a controlled substance. This offense is most frequently charged as a misdemeanor, but in some cases a defendant may face felony charges. Felony DUI charges typically apply when a defendant has multiple prior DUI-related convictions on his or her record, stands accused of causing an injury accident or is accused of causing the death of another person while driving under the influence. Enhanced penalties will apply in the event of felony charges, with years of imprisonment in state prison as a possible sentence.
If you have been arrested and charged with driving under the influence, a criminal defense lawyer can provide you with the aggressive defense, legal guidance, and resources that you need to overcome your charges. We know you are probably worried about whether or not you will be sentenced to jail, lose your driver’s license, attend DUI school, or be required to pay large fines and court fees you can’t afford. You may even face increased insurance costs for years after your conviction. We understand what you’re going through and want to alleviate your stresses by providing you with the unrelenting defense you need to be successful in court. As your DUI attorney, we are committed to doing whatever we can to convince the judge you are innocent and disprove the prosecution’s case.
