Jeffrey Wiggs – Helping Floridians Face Felony DUI/DWI Charges

If you're facing a felony DUI/DWI charge in Florida, you're facing a very serious situation. That's because, depending on the circumstances of your case, you could be looking at anything from a $1,000 in fines and perhaps only a few years in prison to steeper fines and lengthier prison sentences. Prosecutors in Florida typically aren't too friendly toward drunk driving defendants either, oftentimes looking for reasons to hand out the harshest punishment possible.

My name is Jeffrey W. Wiggs, and I've successfully handled thousands of criminal cases all with one goal in mind: to make sure that my clients get a proper investigation and are treated fairly by prosecutors. My job as a criminal defense lawyer is to educate my clients – which I do every time – and help them put forth the best defense they can. If their case ends in a plea deal, I make sure it's in their best interests. If their case needs to go to trial, I'm prepared to defend them to the end.

The Risks Associated With A Felony Charge

Felony DUI charges can result from several instances, such as:

  • Receiving a fourth or consecutive DUI/DWI, or a third DUI/DWI within 10 years
  • Causing serious bodily harm to another while driving under the influence
  • Causing fatal injury to another while driving under the influence
  • Causing a fatal DUI/DWI accident and then leaving the scene

Charges associated with these offenses are steep, and can reach thousands of dollars in fines and decades in prison. In cases of serious bodily injury or fatalities, defendants must contend with the cost of criminal proceedings as well as the chance of facing a lawsuit. The cost here can be equally as staggering.

Prosecutors Don't Have Your Best Interests In Mind – I Do

Whether you're facing a felony DUI/DWI charge because of a fatal accident or because of too many strikes on your record, I can help prosecutors see past your faults so that a fair outcome can be found. Because I keep my services local in Lake County and nearby Sumter County, I can spend more time reviewing evidence and putting together a defense that works for you.
