Buffalo Felony DWI Lawyer

Let Us Protect Your Rights - Call Today

A DWI charge is a criminal conviction, and is far more serious than a simple traffic ticket. In certain cases, however, a DWI can be a major felony offense. If you are facing felony DWI charges, it is imperative that you secure representation from a highly experienced Buffalo DWI defense lawyer. At The Rossi Law Firm, our attorneys are recognized for the quality of our counsel, and our dedication to our clients.

Don't face felony DWI charges alone. Call (716) 854-5555 today for tough defense.

When Does A DWI Become a Felony?

An arrest for DWI may result in a felony charge, depending on the facts of your case and your criminal record. If you have been convicted of a DWI offense within the past ten years, any new DWI arrest will result in a felony DWI charge, as opposed to the misdemeanor DWI charge that would result from a first offense.

In addition, you may be charged with felony DWI if you operated a motor vehicle while intoxicated and there was a child in the vehicle. If you are charged with a felony DWI, it is vital that you contact an experienced DWI attorney as soon as possible, as the potential penalties increase significantly. The consequences of a felony DWI conviction include a potential prison sentence, extensive periods of probation, and significant fines.

DWIs are charged as felonies if you meet certain criteria, including:

  • Within the past 10 years, you were convicted of a DWI-related offense, including vehicular manslaughter, DWI, aggravated DWI, DWAI by drugs or similar crimes.
  • You are charged with a DWI related offense while a passenger fifteen years of age or younger was in the vehicle.

We offer initial case reviews. Call (716) 854-5555 for yours.
