The Felony DWI- Potential Repercussions and Alternative Courts

Unlike the run-of-the-mill misdemeanor DWI, a third offense could trigger the filing of a felony DWI which comes replete with serious prison time and the potential for a 10 year or permanent denial of your driving privilege.   And don’t be fooled, BOTH the criminal matter and the driving privilege issues of a felony DWI require immediate, experienced representation.   That is why it is critically important to have a legal team with the resources, experience and level of skill necessary to represent your interests.  Not doing so could mean your life as you know it.  This is important because the right attorney will be able to discuss with you all of the repercussions that can arise from a potential felony DWI conviction. This would include the possibility of losing your driving privileges for 10 years, without an opportunity for a limited driving privilege.  An experienced and knowledgeable attorney would be able to advise you of whether you would be eligible as a participant in an alternative court, also known as DWI Court.  This court has the statutory authority to provide defendants with a Felony DWI the opportunity to obtain a limited driving privilege.  To many it is the driving privilege that is extremely important to them, so that is why having a knowledgeable attorney is important.
