Felony DUI Charges Must Be Fought

At Lanza & Lanza, we defend clients against serious drunk driving charges on a regular basis. Each case we handle is unique, and you can trust that we will customize your defense strategy based on your unique legal circumstances and needs.

If you have been charged with assault by automobile, vehicular manslaughter or vehicular homicide, you need a law firm on your side that has the resources, experience and confidence to defend your case against the toughest challenge. These are felony charges, and conviction carries substantial penalties:

  • Assault by automobile: 18 months to five years in prison
  • Aggravated assault by automobile: Five to 10 years in prison

In New Jersey, aggravated assault can be charged if the prosecution asserts that your blood alcohol content (BAC) was greater than .08 or if your driving behavior was deemed “reckless.” If you are charged with vehicular manslaughter or vehicular homicide, the potential prison sentence and other consequences are even more devastating. The situation is even more serious for those faced with multiple DUI convictions, as second, third and all other subsequent DUI convictions can be especially severe.

Challenge The Prosecution | Allow Us To Defend Your Rights

Our Flemington felony DUI defense lawyers understand both how to prosecute and how to defend drunk driving charges of all degrees. We know how to challenge the DUI case against our clients and how to minimize or get traffic violations dismissed.

Charges are based on the evidence the prosecution presumes to have of drunk driving, reckless driving and the seriousness of injuries to other people involved in the accident. We work to blow holes in that evidence and aggressively challenge the prosecution’s ability to prove your BAC at the time of the accident, cause of the accident and the proper handling of evidence.
