Sarasota Felony DUI Lawyers

A felony DUI charge is a very serious offense, and requires the attention of an experienced criminal defense lawyer. A conviction may result in significant fines and jail time. Having a strong advocate on your side who can evaluate your situation and fight for your rights is vital to the outcome of your case.

At McIntosh Law, our attorneys have extensive experience with felony DUI cases. Our first step will be to meet with you to determine whether it is a felony or not. Our attorneys will evaluate the validity of testing methods used by law enforcement and their results. We will examine prior DUI convictions and out-of-state records to determine if they are valid or if they can be challenged in court, possibly reducing the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor.
