Tennessee prosecutors are extremely aggressive in their pursuit of a conviction in felony DUI cases. We provide the strongest possible defense in your case and do everything in our power to avoid a conviction.

Understanding The Consequences In Tennessee Felony DUI Cases

Many of the felony DUI cases we handle involve people who are facing their fourth or subsequent drunk driving offense. These cases are charged as a Class E felony, which is punishable by a year in jail with a required 150 consecutive days served, a mandatory fine of up to $15,000 and license revocation of five years with no possibility of getting a restricted license. You could also have your vehicle seized, be ordered to attend DUI school and install an ignition interlock device at your own expense.

Under Tennessee law, you could also face a felony charge in the following DUI cases:

  • Causing serious bodily injury to another person while driving under the influence
  • Driving under the influence with a child under the age of 13 in the car with you
  • Causing a fatal crash while driving with a BAC of .08 percent or higher
  • Aggravated vehicular assault while driving drunk
