What is a Felony DUI in California?
Under California law, a felony DUI is punishable with a minimum of sixteen

How Long Does a Felony DUI Stay on Your Record in California?
A California DUI stays on your driving record for 10 years for a misdemeanor
or a felony – and it will stay on your criminal record permanently.
Each record serves various purposes when it comes to the effects of a
DUI on your life.
Does a Felony DUI Ever Go Away?
The only way to get rid of a felony record is to have it
expunged, which means erasing the record like it never occurred.

"Felony DUI defense requires extensive courtroom experience. We are
not a DUI mill. We thoroughly investigate the evidence and aggressively
prepare your case to win in court. When the prosecutor sees we are serious
about winning, he or she is often willing to find a settlement that works
for everyone." — Attorney Robert Wilson
