Bridgeport DUI/DWI Lawyer
Driving under the influence (DUI) is a very serious charge that can result in harsh consequences including jail or prison time. Depending on the seriousness of the charge, you could also lose your license for an extended period of time, causing serious complications to your ability to make a living and inhibiting your freedom.
A felony DUI conviction is extremely serious. There are few crimes that threaten a loss of freedom and impact every aspect of a person’s life more than a DUI felony. A DUI may escalate from a misdemeanor to a felony if an impaired driver caused bodily harm to one or more individuals, resulting in injury or death. If you are a repeat offender, the charges may also escalate to felony status. If you are charged with a felony DUI, it is critical to work with a proven and experienced felony DUI attorney.
