Felony DUI


Knowledgeable and Effective Felony DUI Representation

At the Law Firm of Sean F. Leslie, the DUI attorneys are experienced in representing individuals accused with felony DUI charges. Felony DUI charges are much more serious than the standard misdemeanor DUI charges. Accordingly, one of the goals is to get the felony DUI charges reduced to misdemeanor charges to avoid formal supervisory probation and or a lengthy prison sentence.

Pursuant to the California Vehicle Code (CVC) and the California Penal Code (CPC) felony DUI charges may stem from driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and causing injury to another person (CVC 23153) and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and killing another person which can be alleged as second degree murder or vehicular manslaughter (CPC 187, 192 et seq.).

Other circumstances or crimes that may result in felony charges stemming from a DUI arrest may include hit & run causing injury (CVC 20001), evading arrest causing injury (CVC 2800.3), a 4th time repeat offender within a ten year period, and obtaining a DUI conviction after having had a prior felony DUI conviction (CVC 23550).

You must contact my firm immediately if you have been arrested for any of the above charges or if any of them have been formally filed against you. We must carefully examine all aspects of your DUI case including whether the police procedures were properly followed, retesting your blood sample and contesting the extent of any alleged injuries.
