Felony DUI Charges Require a Powerful Defense
Felony DUI is a very serious charge, and the California DUI laws are some of the toughest in the nation. Penalties can include a long prison sentence, a large fine, and losing your driver’s license for years. To avoid the harshest penalties, you will need a very skilled DUI attorney with the experience and legal ability to provide a powerful defense tailored to your exact situation.
I’m attorney Scott R. Cadzow, and I have 25 years of experience in successfully defending my clients from felony DUI charges in Orange County and the rest of Southern California.
When you retain me to defend you, I’ll investigate every detail of your case and seek out all potential witnesses and evidence to support a strong defense for you. I’m experienced in negotiating DUI plea bargains, and in defending felony DUI cases at trial.
You can be confident that I have the experience, skill, and drive to do everything possible to obtain the best outcome for you given the facts and law, whether that is reduced charges, reduced penalties, or, if the facts and law support it, acquittal.
A California DUI Can Become a Felony in 3 Different Ways
Your first, second, and third California DUI will usually be charged as misdemeanor criminal offense. However, a DUI can become a felony in one of three ways:
- You drove under the influence and then broke a traffic law or other law, and someone was injured or killed, or
- You have 3 earlier convictions of either DUI or reckless driving while under the influence (or an out-of-state charge equal to either of these) within the last ten years, or
- You already have one or more felony DUI convictions.
You need an effective DUI defense attorney in any of these situations. If you retain me to defend you, I’ll immediately begin gathering evidence and seeking out witnesses to support you.
With your consent, I’ll negotiate with the D.A. and push for a good plea bargain offer for you. But if no good offer is made, I will provide you with the strongest trial defense the facts and law allow.
