Criminal Law

A DUI can be categorized as a misdemeanor or as felony. Minimum penalties are well defined and include probation, a fine, certain classes and a mandatory suspension of driving privileges, and impoundment of the vehicle. These minimum penalties grow in seriousness if the individual has prior DUI’s, damages property, injures or kills someone. This last scenario is called DUI Manslaughter and is an extremely serious felony often met with very severe penalties including prison time.


Testimonials

I have engaged Draper Law Offices for three (3) different accidents.  My experience with this firm has been excellent each time, with positive results in my favor.  Charles Draper kept me informed throughout the process of each claim.  He was always available when ever I needed him to answer any questions.
 
The staff could not have been more courteous and helpful to me.  They never made me feel that I was bothering them (and I called quite a lot, believe me).  After a while they seemed like family.
 
I certainly would engage Draper Law Office (Charles Draper) if another problem would occur.
 
My recommendation to other people as to Draper Law Office would be “FIRST” on my list.
 
They are true and loyal to their clients.
 
I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
