Just because law enforcement has arrested you for a DUI based on Breathalyzer or blood tests does not mean that you must simply accept the punishment of these charges. The process of charging a person with drunk driving is complex, and law enforcement officers often make mistakes that can be used in your favor.
At Frank, Juengel & Radefeld, Attorneys at Law, we routinely represent clients facing DUI charges, from first-time offenders to those facing serious felony DUI charges. No matter the nature of your charges, the consequences have the power to cause significant disruption in your life. Our overwhelming breadth of experience in representing clients in these matters can protect your interests and help you return to the independence you need.

We represent clients in difficult and high-risk felony DUI cases, including:
Chronic offenders — These felony charges are punishable from five years to 15 years in prison and may result in an offender serving a mandatory prison sentence of at least two years before being eligible for probation or parole.
Aggravated or persistent offenders — These felony charges may result in a felony conviction and a mandatory sentence of 60 days in jail.
Felony assault or manslaughter charges — An offender could be charged with these if someone was injured or died as a result of the alleged DUI offense.
The stakes are high in these cases, and you need the best in criminal defense. You cannot rely on a DUI defense mill. You need the skill of veteran trial lawyers on your side. We will aggressively fight the charges, going to trial, if needed.
We look for common mistakes made by law enforcement in stops, and use those errors to build a case on your behalf, either to minimize the charges or to have them thrown out entirely.
If applicable and the client desires, our lawyers can work to arrange counseling sessions for you to get you the help you need, demonstrating to the court that you intend to change and that you are regretful for your actions. In some cases, there may be little chance of getting the charges thrown out entirely, but in these situations, we can help clients avoid the full brunt of the law and significant prison sentences.
