Felony DUI Lawyer in Pasadena

Pasadena DUI Attorney Serving Altadena, Glendale, La Canada Flintridge, San Marino & Sierra Madre

Being charged with a felony DUI is a very grave matter and demands you contact a Pasadena DUI attorney for immediate legal advice.  There are several instances in which a DUI may be charged as a felony rather than a misdemeanor.  These include:

  • Being charged with a DUI if you already have three DUI convictions on your record within the last ten years
  • Being charged with a DUI which was committed along with another criminal act
  • If you caused injury to another as a result of driving under the influence
  • If you caused the death of another during a DUI incident
  • If you have any prior felony DUI conviction

Having three prior DUI convictions, a prior felony DUI conviction, or causing a death will always result in the DUI being considered a felony DUI.  In some cases, though, a DUI can be charged as either a felony or misdemeanor at the discretion of the prosecutor or the court.  A felony DUI will have consequences of a similar nature to a misdemeanor DUI but significantly harsher.

What can be done?

At Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP, we will begin by conducting a thorough review of your case.  Our detailed knowledge and vast experience mean we know which factors may make a material difference to its outcome.  We will endeavor to have the charges dismissed or reduced.  This can sometimes occur based on the quality of the evidence or manner in which it was obtained, or other factors. 

Otherwise, we can discuss with you the probable finding in your case and the best course of action.  Sometimes this can involve a plea bargain in order to have the charge reduced to a misdemeanor.  This can be very important considering California's "three strikes rule" and harsh penalties for felony convictions.  Our Criminal Defense Department is standing by to help you in any way we can.

Contact a Pasadena Felony DUI Lawyer immediately if you are facing a felony DUI charge and the severe consequences that can result.
