Consequences of a Felony DUI

Penalties for multiple drunk driving offenses in Alabama have significantly increased over the past few years. A fourth DUI is a Class C felony which can result in a sentence of no less than one year and one day and no more than ten years in prison. In addition, your driver's license shall be suspended for five years. The fine is at least $4,100, not to exceed $10,100. Requirements to attend court-approved substance programs are mandated as well.

Diligent Felony Defense of your DUI

With consequences so harsh, you need to contact Simms & Associates. The stakes are higher, as not only will you lose your license: you are facing the prospect of a lengthy prison term. We will immediately conduct a thorough investigation, starting with the justification that the arresting officer had for the initial stop. We will also question how the breath and field sobriety tests were conducted. If your rights were violated in any way, we will seek dismissal of your case. Please know that a DUI arrest does not always result in a DUI conviction.  We successfully defend the vast majority of the DUI cases we handle (upwards of 90%). Many cases that initially appeared hopeless to our clients have resulted in acquittals or dismissals.

We have extensive experience trying bench and jury trials in both state and federal courts. In addition, we have a high rate of success in DUI defense, thanks to our skills and reputation as hard-fighting, diligent trial lawyers.
