Los Angeles Felony DUI Attorney

Have you been charged with a felony DUI in LA?

These include:

When you have been charged with a felony DUI, hiring a Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer is your best chance of avoiding conviction. The right attorney will be able to correctly assess your case in order to build a solid defense on your behalf.

Felony DUI Penalties

A felony DUI offense in the state of California is heavily prosecuted in the courts. If you are found guilty of a felony offense, you will spend a minimum of one year in state prison, and may face additional fines, counseling, probation and the loss of your driver's license. A DUI causing injury charge and a 4th DUI conviction may result in up to 3 years in state prison. The number of years in prison may increase to 10 years if you are convicted of a manslaughter charge while driving under the influence.

If you have failed sobriety tests or a blood or breath test, it may seem that conviction is inevitable. However, a skilled DUI attorney can find the loopholes in your case to prove that the tests were faulty or that they were illegally administered. If you contact an attorney early on in your case, your attorney can work with the prosecution from the beginning to gather evidence and information to support your story. The research done by your attorney may be the key to proving your innocence.
