Overland Park Felony DUI Attorney

About Felony DUI in Kansas

One of the most common reasons for arrest in Kansas is DUI, and as a result repeat offenders often appear in our courts. Many repeat offender arrests occur after a traffic stop. You may not have known that an officer must have reasonable cause for stopping you. At the time of a stop the officer is already looking for signs of intoxication. Upon noticing such a sign the officer begins a DUI investigation. If you agreed to take part in a Field Sobriety Test (FST), you may have thought you passed and were surprised to be arrested and then subjected to a blood or breath test. If you have two prior convictions or more, you may be facing felony DUI charges and are strongly urged to talk with an Overland Park criminal defense attorney at once.

Felony DUI Lawyer in Overland Park

A person arrested for DUI with two prior DUI convictions may face criminal charges if the last conviction occurred within 10 years. Even a diversion with a dismissal will count against you. The 10 year period does not include any time of imprisonment. A driver may also be charged with felony DUI if an accident took place which resulted in serious injury or death. During a DUI investigation the officer will ask questions such as "How much have you had to drink?" in order to gain incriminating evidence against you. If you answer any questions you could create problems for yourself, and exercising your right to remain silent is important. The safest thing to do is say nothing, and contact our firm. A trusted DUI defense lawyer at our firm is committed to representing the criminally accused, and in fighting felony drunk driving charges. We are prepared to investigate the circumstances of your arrest to find any possible flaws in the prosecution's case to exploit for your defense case.

Kansas prosecutors are energetic in seeking convictions in DUI cases. The penalties for conviction of felony DUI include imprisonment, large fines, ignition interlock device, mandatory drug and alcohol program, driver's license suspension or revocation, and a permanent criminal record. Just because you have been arrested and charged does not automatically mean you will be convicted. A skilled criminal defense lawyer at our firm is fully familiar with the mistakes which law enforcement personnel can make and could use them to your advantage. Call Gigstad Law Office, LLC to discuss the circumstances of your arrest during a free initial consultation.

    "Robert Was Extremely Helpful and Great to Work With!"
    My dad has used Robert for several moving violations in the past and recommended that I give him a call for a speeding ticket of my own. Robert was extremely helpful and great to work with. He successfully got my speeding ticket reduced to a non moving violation.

    "Excellent Service!!!"
    Mr. Gigstad provided excellent service in helping me to remedy several traffic tickets, one of which had potentially serious consequences. He was very responsive, attentive and followed through on helping me resolve this situation. He's a great guy as well and I can't recommend him enough!

    "I Couldn't Be More Pleased!"
    I couldn't be more pleased with Mr. Gigstad's services. Contacting a law firm you typically are faced with leaving multiple messages and dealing with secretaries that might not always know the best route to take. From the very first time I contacted Roberts office he personally was always very quick to respond to email and explain exactly what need to be done in my case. You never want the need for a lawyer but if the need arises again I will not hesitate to contact Mr. Gigstad again for his services.

    "Very Respectful and Understanding Throughout the Process"
    I contacted Gigstad Law Office when I found myself being charged with a DUI in the state of Kansas. Although I've used other lawyers in the past for other types of legal situations, I've found, much to my disappointment, that they can often be flaky, or lacking in timely communication and responsiveness. I found that Mr. Gigstad was just the opposite. His rates are reasonable, he didn't drop the ball when I needed immediate legal advice, and was very respectful and understanding throughout the process. I would definitely recommend his services.
