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.

    “Randy can get anything done that he puts his heart to! He has a nice smile, honest and is very supportive, a rare find in a lawyer! I wish the best to you Randy & hope to see you have a huge law firm in the future, you deserve it!”
    This man has a "Heart of Gold" he was very honest and kind. He did everything he told me he would, the only BAD thing I can say is his investigator Judd Slivka is the worst, did not do his job right and did not call me as promised by Randy. If Randy was to get a "real" investigator he would really do much better. Randy is the best I have ever seen yet! As for phone calls he was there for me 8 out of 10 times, he was at all of our appointments, he is very professional and I would recommend him to anyone! Randy can get anything done that he puts his heart to! He has a nice smile, honest and is very supportive, a rare find in a lawyer! I wish the best to you Randy & hope to see you have a huge law firm in the future, you deserve it!
