It is very important in a felony DUI case that you retain counsel as quickly as possible. A felony DUI case does not follow the same path through the courts as a misdemeanor first or second offense DUI case. A felony case will result in a preliminary hearing or probable cause hearing in the Court of Common Pleas usually within the first week or two after arrest. It is IMPERATIVE that you retain a qualified DUI defense attorney with felony criminal trial experience to represent you at this hearing. There are things you need to do at the preliminary hearing stage, such as determine whether you will have your hearing or waive your hearing. If you have the hearing, then you must have competent representation to PRESERVE AND CHALLENGE THE EVIDENCE.

Please call me or email me about your DUI 3rd offense arrest.
