Felony DUI/DWI Charges Require A Serious Defense

A felony DUI charge is a serious matter. If convicted, you are facing a minimum mandatory prison sentence. Make sure you hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can provide you with the strong defense you need.

Located in Greensboro, North Carolina, attorney Peter D. Zellmer is known throughout the triad area as a skilled, aggressive defense lawyer who gets results. When handling felony DUI cases, he has one goal: to minimize the negative impact on your life. Whether through negotiation with the prosecutor or litigating your case to a judge or jury, your future remains his No. 1 priority.


Felony DUI Charges Aren't Just For Repeat Offenders

Many people think only habitual offenders can be charged with a felony DUI. That is not true. Even if this is your first DUI charge, you can still be charged with a felony if one of the following circumstances exist:

  • If you were involved in a car crash where another person was seriously injured or killed
  • If you are a habitual offender
  • If you were involved in a drunk driving accident, there is a good chance you will also be facing a civil lawsuit for injuries or wrongful death.

Coordinating your criminal and civil defense strategies is important for both cases. Mr. Zellmer will work closely with your civil attorney to align your criminal and civil defenses.


A Former Prosecutor Working For You

Before opening his law office, Mr. Zellmer worked at the District Attorney's Office. He knows how to present evidence and arguments during plea deal negotiations and at trial in a way that undermines the prosecution's case, humanizes his clients, and appeals to judges and juries.
