Protecting Your Rights After A Felony DUI Charge
Drinking and driving is never an advisable decision. Even just a slight amount of alcohol in your system can greatly impair your reaction time, putting yourself and others on the road at risk. Still, mistakes happen, and if you have prior offenses, a traffic stop could lead to felony charges.

Helping You Avoid Severe Consequences
Felony DUI is a relatively new charge in the state of Colorado. Signed into law in 2015, this charge can result from a fourth or greater offense, or if your impaired driving caused serious or fatal injuries. Some of the penalties for a felony DUI conviction can include:
- Fines as high as $500,000
- Up to six years in state prison
- The loss of your license
- The mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device
- Greatly enhanced treatment requirements
With so much at stake, you cannot afford to take on a felony DUI charge alone. With my extensive background in criminal defense, I know where to look for weaknesses in the case against you, and I can devise a legal strategy that best positions you for a positive result.
