We are among the top DUI defense firms in the state and have a long track record of obtaining case dismissals, acquittals, and reduced charges and sentences for our clients.
What Makes a DUI a Felony?
There are several things that can elevate a DUI charge to the level of a felony. They include:
- Having 2 or more prior offenses within 20 years
- Having a passenger under the age of 16 in the car at the time of the arrest
- Driving on a suspended or revoked license
- Driving without a license or insurance
- Driving a school bus with passengers under the age of 18
- Driving in a school zone with accident causing bodily harm
- Getting in an accident resulting in great bodily harm, permanent disability or disfigurement
- Getting in an accident resulting in death
