What is a Felony DUI in California?

Under California law, a felony DUI is punishable with a minimum of sixteen months in state prison and a loss of driving privileges for five years. A driver can be charged with felony DUI if:

  • It is the fourth offense within a 10-year period
  • Any prior felony DUI convictions

How Can a Defense Lawyer Help You?

If it will serve your best long-term interests, we will do everything possible to get you into the sobriety program you need if you show that you are sincere about getting sober. This is often the best legal strategy for many of our clients. It is not the only legal strategy we have for your best interests, however.

"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

Our Philosophy

Our firm's philosophy is that there is a viable defense strategy for every DUI charge, no matter how complex or serious. This is why our lawyers focus on preparing all cases for trial. However, you should know that a trial for a felony charge has its risks. If your circumstances warrant seeking a plea agreement for an alternative sentence, we will work closely with the district attorney. If the situation allows it, our goal will be to get you into a sobriety program or some other sort of diversion program.
