Florida DUI Defense Lawyer at 305-262-2728
If you are arrested on a drunk driving charge in Florida, you need to take the charge very seriously and understand the potential consequences against you. A DUI arrest may result in the suspension of your driver's license in addition to stiff fines and potential jail time. For multiple offenses and felony DUI offenses, the penalties and their long-term effects will increase.
You Only Have 10 Days to Request an Administrative Hearing
It's important to contact a DUI attorney as soon as possible after you've been pulled over.
On the date of the arrest, you will be given a 10-day driving permit. Once the permit has expired, your license will be suspended for up to six months on a first offense and up to a year for a second offense. In order to fight this license suspension, you must request a DMV hearing within 10 days of the arrest.
Defense for Driving Under the Influence
A defense for a DUI arrest can be challenging and requires an attorney who has knowledge of these issues and who can establish an effective defense against the charges. Scientific evidence from a Breathalyzer, blood, and other chemical tests may be presented against you. Additionally, the testimony of the arresting officer and your own statements can be used to build a case.
Our firm will look at all the evidence and circumstances of your case. We will examine the initial stop and the arrest to see if they were conducted properly. We will also look at the calibration and maintenance of Breathalyzer machines to see if your chemical tests were administered properly.
