Felony DUI Lawyer in Long Beach

While getting a DUI is always a serious issue that should never be taken lightly, it is classified as a misdemeanor in many cases. However, there are cases in which the charges can be increased to a felony. If you have been charged with a felony DUI, you need the DUI lawyer of West Coast Defense to represent your legal interests.

Felony DUI Penalties Can Be Stiff

Factors that might warrant felony charges include when you have 3 or more previous convictions. Any subsequent charges for a repeat offense will also mean a felony charge. Another reason a DUI offense may be a felony is if there is a traffic violation (such as speeding, running a red light, etc.) or a third party is injured and this injury is due to the traffic violation. When faced with such a grave charge, you need hard-hitting legal representation.

The minimum penalty for a felony DUI is:

  • 180 days in jail
  • Up to $3,000 in fines
  • 4-year revoking of your driver's license
  • 18 month alcohol education program

You could be facing as much as 3 years in prison. Beyond losing your freedom, you would face life as a convicted felon even after serving your sentence. This includes having these charges imprinted on your record, haunting your every opportunity you get for employment and housing. If you face a felony DUI charge, you are faced with life-altering prospects. With your freedom and enduring reputation on the line, it would be invaluable to seek the qualified assistance of an esteemed felony DUI lawyer from our Long Beach criminal defense firm.
