    Not too long ago I got a DUI. I hired a lawyer and have been going through the court system for the past few months. What I was wondering was if I could have the UPS Legal Benefits pay for some of my lawyer fees, even after I have already paid the lawyer in full.

    Also it is a felony DUI at this point which I know is not covered in the legal services, but it should be dropped down to a misdemeanor. At that point, would my lawyer fees be able to be covered by UPS benefits.

    Thanks in advance!

    Not sure, but it would probably look pretty bad if UPS's own legal plan covered DUI defenses of its employees due to the nature of our business. Especially if it reimbursed post-conviction.

    Not always, in most states if you have a minor on board and your BAC is over .15, it can be a felony for a first offense. Causing injury or death over .15 is also a felony for first offense.
    But under those conditions, yes a two time loser...first is driving drunk, second is involving someone else who was innocent.

    In Upstate NY if you get a DUI within 10 years of a previous one the second one would automatically be a felony.

    Since no one answered the question. Had you contacted a union lawyer prior to going to court you could "probably" have it covered if you used one of their lawyers. But since you already went through the legal system no one is gonna cover you, its not the same as insurance.

    This is not necessarily true. In our local we can either choose from one of their "approved" lawyers or we can use our own and they will give us a monetary allowance, based on the legal issue, to help defray the cost.
