Felony DUI:

A felony DUI charge in New York can (and will) lead to jail time, heavy fines, restricted driving privileges or have a locking device attached to your vehicle. In fact, a felony DUI conviction will result in a minimum 1 year jail sentence. This will affect your career, your home life and more. A court appointed DUI attorney (Public Defender) will treat as just another case on his or her docket, jeopardizing your rights and your freedom. You need a skilled DUI attorney who will aggressively defend you against any felony DUI charge. Felony DUI charges include any instance in which an impaired driver injures another driver and/or passenger. This includes Vehicular Manslaughter. A major felony DUI could lead to years in prison and a revoking of driving privileges. A person may also be charged with a felony DUI if he/she has had prior DUI convictions within a certain period of time.

Misdemeanor DUI:

A misdemeanor DUI charged may not seem like a big deal, but in some instances you won’t even be given a court appointed DUI lawyer. Without a qualified, experienced DUI lawyer assisting you in your DUI case, you may be unaware of the potential consequences of a Misdemeanor DUI Conviction. Pleading guilty to any charge could be the wrong way to go, and having an experienced misdemeanor DUI lawyer representing you could make all the difference.

DUI Attorney Team:

Ryan Blanch (founder and senior attorney at The Blanch Law Firm), Doug Schneider and Ed McQuat all spent significant amounts of time in District Attorney’s Offices. Few firms, if any, can offer a DUI lawyer team with such unique experience.
