Repeat DUI - Felony Drunk Driving
Philadelphia DUI / DWI Lawyer
Pennsylvania comes down hard on repeat drunk driving offenders. If you are convicted of felony drunk driving, the court will suspend or revoke your license, and sentence you to jail time or in-home detention, significant and increasing fines, public service, alcohol education, and probation.
The sentence will become more serious with each DUI conviction and the State will look back over a 10-year period to determine how many DUI's you have when making a decision about sentencing. A third DUI offense (felony drunk driving) and you may be looking at a year in state prison.
If you have been charged with drinking and driving and you have had one, two, or more previous DUI convictions, contact an experienced DUI defense lawyer immediately. You need a vigorous defense.
Prosecutors know the DUI defense attorneys at Patrick Artur & Associates. We've been protecting the rights of people accused of felony drunk driving, DWI, and OUI for more than 30 years. Prosecutors know we don't plead guilty. If you have been accused of DUI, we enter a "not guilty" plea and then do everything possible in your defense.
People don't hire us to cut a deal— they hire us to hear "not guilty" verdict.
Will your case go to trial? For a first DUI offense, a trial generally is not an option. With a second offense, you can get a jury trial if you had a BAC of .15% or higher or refused to take the breathalyzer or other test. For a third or later offense, you can request a jury trial and we do.
We take every case with the attitude that we will go to trial if necessary to avoid a DUI conviction. We've handled hundreds of jury trials so we are well prepared to take your case. We also defend people charged with driving without the required ignition-interlock system after having consumed alcohol.
If you have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), or operating under the influence (OUI), please contact the Philadelphia DUI attorneys at Patrick Artur & Associates.
You have rights. We protect them.
