Omaha Felony DUI Defense Lawyer in Nebraska

Buffalo County felony DUI charges attorney

Douglas County Attorney for Clients with Multiple DUIs and Aggravated DUI Charges

While any driving while intoxicated charge is a serious matter, the dire nature of the offense escalates significantly when it becomes a felony crime. A felony DUI conviction can bring substantial incarceration, devastating fines, and more than a decade of driver's license revocation.

If you face a felony DUI charge, it is crucial you secure skilled legal representation immediately. At Olsen Law Offices, P.C., L.L.O., Attorney Tom Olsen is a Former Assistant State Attorney General and Assistant Omaha City Prosecutor who knows how to get results. This is evidenced by his successful defense of thousands of DUI clients during his three decades of trial experience. When your driving privileges, hard-earned money, and freedom are on the line, he is the criminal defense attorney to have by your side.

Felony DUI in Nebraska

A first-time DUI, second DUI, or a third DUI with a blood-alcohol concentration between .08 and .14 is charged as a Class W misdemeanor. For a third DUI that includes a BAC of .15 or above (which constitutes aggravated DUI), and any subsequent DUI, it becomes a felony:

Aggravated Third DUI or Fourth DUI: Charged as a Class IIIA felony with up to three years in jail, a $10,000 fine, and a 15-year driver's license revocation.

Aggravated Fourth DUI or Fifth DUI: Charged as a Class IIA felony with up to 20 years in prison, a $25,000 fine, and a 15-year driver's license revocation.

Aggravated Fifth DUI: Charged as a Class II felony with up to 50 years in prison and a 15-year driver's license revocation.

All of these criminal accusations require an aggressive DUI defense lawyer, especially if you want to maintain your ability to drive with an ignition interlock permit. Regardless of the type of offense, Attorney Tom Olsen will conduct a full investigation to assess your case and sit down with you to discuss the optimal plan of action.

What Does a DUI Lawyer Do?

Just because you have multiple offenses on your criminal record does not mean your rights as a citizen are vacated. Some law enforcement officers forget this and ignore legally established protocols designed to protect accused individuals.

Attorney Tom Olsen can determine if this happened to you. This may include an unlawful traffic stop, an incorrectly administered field sobriety test or blood-alcohol test, insufficient maintenance of BAC testing equipment, or a lack of adherence to the 15-minute observation rule prior to giving a BAC test at the police station.

The facts of your case will largely dictate Attorney Olsen's defense strategy and you can trust in his extensive knowledge and adept negotiation skills as he pursues a favorable outcome.
