Jacksonville Felony DUI Attorney

Felony Drunk Driving Charges

A wide variety of factors can determine whether your DUI is charged as a felony or a misdemeanor. On the same hand, the severity of your penalty also can be influenced by a broad spectrum of circumstances. Your number of previous offenses, the level of your blood alcohol ratio when you took a breath test and whether or not you injured any individuals while driving intoxicated can all affect the charges brought against you and the sentence you receive if convicted. A felony DUI charge has much more extreme repercussions than a misdemeanor DUI. With the threat of facing felony charges in court hanging over your head, it is essential that you speak to a Jacksonville DUI attorney without delay. A skilled attorney can greatly increase your chances of receiving a more favorable ruling in your case.

If you have been charged with multiple DUIs then your DUI may be considered a felony DUI. Even if the circumstances of your current DUI seem minor, the severity doesn't matter as much as the quantity of offenses on your record matter. A DUI can also be considered a felony if you were the cause of the death of another. Drinking and driving often leads to serious injury, but in many tragic cases it can lead to death. If your DUI resulted in the death of another then you were likely charged with vehicular manslaughter, also called homicide DUI. Some hit-and-run accidents may also be considered felony DUI. If you left the scene of the accident you are likely facing more serious penalties then you would have if you had stayed at the scene of the accident.

There is still hope after a DUI charge but you have to act fast.

It is always better to seek the help of a competent attorney who knows how to handle a DUI case. If the police officer who made your arrest is being honest with you, then you know that you are given the right to an attorney. You legally do not have to speak with an officer until you gain the help of a DUI defense lawyer. By speaking with a professional, they can inform you of how they will go about trying to clear your charges. There are many ways that a DUI attorney can help you, one of the main ways being trying to find the evidence surrounding your felony DUI to be faulty.
