Dallas Felony DWI and DUI Lawyer

At the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter, we know that any DWI or DUI conviction in Dallas is serious; however, there is a marked difference between a misdemeanor and a felony, especially when it comes to the repercussions that a convicted person faces. Unfortunately for Texas residents, there are several alcohol related offenses that are considered to be a felony DWI or DUI, such as conviction for a third DUI or DWI offense, killing someone while operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, or having a minor in the vehicle while driving under the influence.

As the penalties associated with a conviction of a felony DWI or DUI are more severe than that of a misdemeanor charge, such a conviction can have a serious impact on a person’s life. Thus, having experienced and skilled legal guidance in this situation is often critical to protecting your rights and interests.

Penalties for Felony DWI and DUI

In Texas, those who are charged with a felony DWI or DUI may face a wide range of serious criminal penalties, including:

  • Up to 10 years imprisonment
  • Up to $10,000 in fines
  • Driver’s license suspension for up to 2 years
  • Up to 600 hours of community service
  • Ignition interlock device installation in defendant’s vehicle

These consequences are in addition to the serious personal and professional consequences that those convicted of felony DWI or DUI often face.
