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.

Client-Centered Legal Represntation
    "Robert Assisted Me in Doing Something I Didn't Know Was Possible"
    Robert assisted me in doing something I didn't know was possible - finally putting a bad decision I made 14 years ago behind me. Although I appreciated his professional and respectful approach to his work, I hope I never need his services again. If I do however, I would not hesitate to call him.

    "Robert Was Excellent to Work with"
    Robert was excellent to work with. I have known him for many many years and he was very professional. He took care of me in a timely manner and also answered any questions I had.

    "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.

    "I Would Recommend Him to Anyone!"
    Robert attended all of my court dates and got everything in order for me to do a diversion. In addition, he was able to get my drivers license case dropped (the part I was really dreading). He provided me with good advice on what to do and all the steps needed to move forward. He was easy to get a hold of through the entire process and great to work with. I would recommend him to anyone!
    Happy Client
    "Extremely Responsive, Straight Talking Attorney That Carries Himself like None I Have Ever Used"
    Extremely responsive, straight talking attorney that carries himself like none I have ever used in the past. Treated me like he was providing a service, rather than doing me a favor by taking my case. Gave me his opinion of my case and his recommendation on how he would approach it but let me make the final decisions. In the end he negotiated a deal with the prosecuting attorney that was better than I thought possible. Zero jail time and minimum fines totaling $250(maximum was $2500). Now, 6 months later he was able to get all of my remaining probation time terminated for good behavior. During that time he also helped out with a lease agreement for a rental property, and a bid contract. Considering the level of service I received and the results I got, in the future I won’t use anyone else.

    "He Was Very Professional and Addressed My Problem in a Timely, Cost-Effective Manner"
    Two thumbs up! I sought Mr. Gigstad's services for my driving infraction. I contacted Mr. Gigstad and heard back from him that very day. He was very professional and addressed my problem in a timely, cost-effective manner. I trust him completely and highly recommend him!

    "I Always Felt "in the Loop""
    Robert was extremely responsive from day one - returning my email contact request almost immediately. He walked me through the process and answered all my questions honestly and promptly. I always felt "in the loop". I originally contacted him because he was the only Johnson County attorney I found that had listed in his advertisement, expungement, as a service he provided. Robert assisted me in doing something I didn't know was possible - finally putting a bad decision I made 14 years ago behind me. Although I appreciated his professional and respectful approach to his work, I hope I never need his services again. If I do however, I would not hesitate to call him.
