Felony DUI Lawyer in Scottsdale, AZ

Aggressive Defense for Felony Drunk Driving Charges

Being stopped by law enforcement and recording a blood alcohol of 0.08% or higher will often result in a DUI arrest. Although most DUIs are charged as misdemeanors, additional circumstances can enhance your charge to a felony, resulting in much higher penalties and harsher consequences.

You need to avoid these high costs of a felony DUI by calling our experienced Scottsdale DUI attorney right away. Our firm can stand up for your rights and defend you against any type of DUI charges! Contact us today to set up a consultation with our compassionate defense team.

When is DUI a felony?

Under Arizona law, a DUI is usually charged as a misdemeanor, as mentioned. However, an aggravated DUI or extreme DUI can both merit a felony charge.

Factors that can enhance a DUI to a felony include:

  • The presence of a child under 15 years old in the car
  • Having two prior DUI convictions within seven years of current DUI charge
  • Driving with a suspended or revoked licenses during the arrest
  • DUI arrest after a judge required the installation and use of an ignition interlock device

Any of these factors can raise your DUI to a serious felony, which carries at least two and a half years in jail. Any third DUI you receive within seven years will also be considered an aggravated DUI which is an automatic felony charge. This carries at least 4 months in prison but upwards of 3 years, fines of $5,500, a revocation of your driver's license for 3 years, probation for up to 10 years, mandatory drug or alcohol evaluation and treatment program, and a possible impounding of your vehicle at your expense.

    “His assistant Jennifer Prescott is amazing and between the two of them I was always informed. And they always kept me calm. Randy saved my life and saved my families life as well. Thank you Randy”
    I was facing 50+ years in prison for false charges. Randy believed in me. My public defender tried to convince me that Jail and years of intense probation were my only option. I then hired Randy. 3 months later my case was dismissed and I am now at home with my family and get to watch my son grow up. His assistant Jennifer Prescott is amazing and between the two of them I was always informed. And they always kept me calm. Randy saved my life and saved my families life as well. Thank you Randy. I have a "checkered past" to say the least and have dealt with over 10 attorneys in my life. Randy is head and shoulders above the rest! THANK YOU RANDY!!
