Felony DUI Attorneys in Michigan

Solid Representation for Serious Criminal Charges

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) charges should always be taken seriously and it is important to always have an experienced drunk driving attorney representing your case. However, having good representation is especially important if you are facing a felony DUI charge. The possibility of extended jail time, fines, and a license revocation or suspension can have a major impact on your future.

Grewal Law PLLC’s drunk driving lawyers in Michigan will work to build the best defense for your case. We will fight to protect your future and will give you the personal attention you deserve. There are different circumstances that lead to a felony charge in a drunk driving case, so we will help you understand the charge you are facing and the steps you will need to follow as your case proceeds.

Punishments for Felony Charges

The penalties for this crime are up to five years in prison.

While serving as your DUI defense attorneys, we will develop an aggressive defense to help you avoid the following possible punishments:

  • Potential jail time of 1 to 5 years. Other options include serving from 30 days to 1 year in prison combined with probation and community service ranging from 60 up to 180 days.
  • Fines starting at $500 up to $5,000.
  • License revocation for at least 5 years. You will also be required to have a Driver’s License Appeal Hearing before being given your license back.
  • Potential installation of a breathalyzer device on your vehicle and up to 6 points on your driver’s license.

Additional restrictions include limits on who you can drive in a vehicle. Restrictions may include not being able to operate a vehicle with anyone under the age of 16 years old.

In addition to OUIL charges, you can also face a felony charge if you are charged with an Operating with the Presence of Drugs (OWPD) after two prior drunk driving convictions.

The OWPD penalties are severe and may include the following:

  • Jail time between 1 and 5 years. Other options include from 30 days to 1 year of jail time combined with probation and community service from 60 up to 180 days.
  • Fines from $500 to $5,000.
  • License revocation for at least 5 years. You will also be required to have a Driver’s License Appeal Hearing before being given your license back.
  • Potential installation of a breathalyzer device on your vehicle and up to 6 points on your driver’s license.

Finally, the most serious punishment is given for a drunk driving conviction that results in the serious impairment or death of another person.

Penalties include the following:

  • Fines ranging from $2,500 to $10,000.
  • Serving up to 15 years in jail.

If you have a high BAC then the punishment will increase for the felony conviction. Anyone convicted of Super Drunk Driving or Operating While Intoxicated charges for the death of another person could receive up to 20 years in prison.
