Defense Against DWI Felony Conviction

A single, first-time conviction for drunk driving can have serious consequences on all aspects of your life. Subsequent charges carry even more severe penalties and may even result in a felony criminal record that will follow you for the rest of your life. Whether this is your first arrest for driving under the influence, or if you have been convicted of a drunk driving charge in the past, it is essential that you get experienced legal representation to provide you with the quality and skilled defense you need.

Felony Charges Carry Severe Penalties

While a single DWI conviction can have a serious impact on your life, the stakes are even higher if you are arrested and charged with drunk driving more than once in a 10-year period. A felony drunk driving conviction will result in mandatory punishments, including fines, five days in jail or 30 days of community service, and the installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle. Additional punishments include probation and/or jail time, or prison time.

Because the state takes aggravated DWI and felony DWI cases so seriously, and with penalties associated with DWI, DUI, DWAI and aggravated DWI being so steep, it is important to seek assistance from legal counsel who understands how to build an effective defense against these types of charges. You can rely on me to protect your rights and to help you achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
