Boise Criminal Lawyer - Idaho Criminal Defense Attorneys - Felony DUI
Boise Criminal Lawyer, Idaho Criminal Defense Attorneys call (208) 472-2383, DUI, DWP, Felony, Misdemeanor and all criminal charges in Idaho.
DUI in Idaho is a serious crime. It can lead to serious consequences for your life, your family and your job. A DUI charge is exacerbated if it is an excessive DUI or a second or third offense. You very quickly move from a misdemeanor charge on your record to a felony charge.
As a Boise Criminal Lawyer I have seen the effects of felony DUI on families. When you are convicted of a felony it becomes very difficult to keep your job or to be hired for a new job. Employment can become tenuous. Often potential employers ask if you have ever been convicted of a felony and will not hire you on that basis. If you have been repeatedly charged with drinking and driving because you have a drinking problem, it can tear your family apart. As a Boise Divorce Attorney I see divorce and custody battles regularly that have the underlying cause of alcoholism and the consequences associated with that such as DUI.
There can be many underlying causes for repeat or excessive DUI offense. As a Boise Criminal Lawyer it is not only my job to help you, depending upon the facts of your case, get a fair and non-excessive or overly punitive sentence but to make certain that you take advantage of the programs that are available to help you when you have been charged with an excessive, repeat or felony DUI. Even if you have the facts available to have the DUI charge against you dropped due to a technicality or a violation or your constitutional rights, if you have more than one DUI it is critical if you are going to prevent further DUI charges that you take a serious look at the underlying cause for the repeat charges.
If you have been charged with a DUI or other crime in Idaho and need to speak to a Boise Criminal Lawyer or an Idaho Criminal Defense Attorney, please call (208) 472-2383 to speak to one of our attorneys now.
