Edmonds Attorney: Felony DUI

Are you facing felony DUI charges in Edmonds?

Facing felony DUI charges is a serious matter. You need to have an experienced Edmonds lawyer to represent you. My firm, Johanson Law Group, Inc., provides high quality criminal defense for individuals who have in trouble with pending felony DUI charges. I am Attorney Jim Johanson and have been practicing law for more than 35 years. As a former Deputy Prosecutor for Pierce and King Counties, I have a very good understanding of both sides in criminal law, and I put that experience to work for those I represent in felony DUI cases. I have extensive experience at trial, so I know how felony DUI cases are prosecuted, and the defense strategies that can lead to a favorable verdict or dismissed or reduced charge. If you are facing felony charges, you need top quality legal representation, as the consequences can be extremely severe in a conviction.

DUI can be prosecuted as either a misdemeanor or a felony. The most common difference is whether it's a first or subsequent offense. First offenses are usually filed as a misdemeanor. Even a first conviction, however, could be filed as a felony DUI in a case in which a person was injured and it is established by the prosecutor that the accident was the result of drunk driving.

If you were driving under the influence and it is proven by the prosecutor that you caused an accident where someone was injured or killed, you could be facing vehicular assault or vehicular homicide charges, both very serious felony offenses. Another circumstance where a DUI charge will be prosecuted as a felony is if you have had 4 or more prior convictions within 10 years. A felony DUI conviction could result in a long prison sentence versus a maximum sentence of 364 days in jail for a misdemeanor.

Aggressive Legal Defense for DUI Charges

When I defend a person charged with felony DUI, I thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding the arrest. There can be several defense avenues to pursue, including the legality of stopping you in the first place, field sobriety test errors, and more. As an Edmonds attorney, you can be confident that I have the experience, knowledge and dedication to take on the defense of your case with the highest level of professional skill.

Contact me right away if you have been arrested and charged. You can also take advantage of my free case evaluation form online. The sooner you contact me, the better chance I have of creating a powerful case for the defense.
