DUI Defense in Florida

Even the “Simplest” DUI Case is Actually Extremely Complex

DUI charges are taken very seriously in Florida. You can be considered in violation of DUI law if your blood alcohol content (BAC) falls within these ranges:

  • .02% BAC if you are under 21
  • .08% if you are 21 or over
  • .04% if you are operating under a commercial license
  • If your BAC is above .15%, then penalties can become even more severe

Florida has an implied consent law. This means that you will be fined and your license suspended automatically if you refuse to submit to a BAC chemical test. Even the “simplest” DUI case is actually extremely complex. This is why it’s important to retain experienced attorneys to represent you regardless of the circumstances of your DUI charge. This is not a time for “do it yourself.”

The Defense that Makes the Most Sense for You

If you are convicted of a DUI offense in Florida, you may be facing the following consequences:

  • Jail time
  • Expensive fines
  • License suspension
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device
  • Community service
  • Impound of your vehicle

These consequences can also have side effects. If you are in jail or your license is suspended, for example, it can be difficult to get to class (if you are a student), keep your job, or fulfill your family responsibilities. In short, a conviction has the potential to impact every area of your life. We will work to understand your entire situation and pursue the defense that makes the most sense for you. Whether that means enrolling you in a treatment program to improve the chances that you will avoid jail time or attempting a “wet reckless” plea bargain, we will seek the best possible outcome for your situation.

There are many types of DUI charges that can be brought against you, including:

  • First-time DUI
