A DUI Carries Long-Term Consequences
In Florida, a blood alcohol level of .08 or higher can result in a DUI charge that includes potential penalties of fines, imprisonment and license revocation. These penalties increase incrementally depending on the number of any existing prior offenses, as well as for a blood alcohol level of .15 or greater. A fourth DUI offense is considered a felony punishable with up to a $5,000 fine, five years in prison and permanent license revocation.
Additionally, a DUI conviction carries a strong social stigma that can hinder your future employment opportunities and business prospects. From experience, I understand how important the resolution of a DUI matter is for a client. As a skilled lawyer with proficiency in criminal law, I will do everything possible to get your charges reduced or dropped completely.
A thorough diagnosis of the factors leading up to the arrest will determine a defense strategy. Sometimes charges can be dismissed because of police misconduct during the arrest or by discrediting evidence. Alternatively, a diversion program can be a method to reduce the impact of DUI charges. For any DUI matter, a plea bargain will only be pursued if in the clients’ best interests. I am confident in handling any DUI case and will use an aggressive approach to protect client rights.
