DUI Defense Attorneys in Orlando
Alcohol is a pervasive fact of life and drinking is a universal past time in our society. Drinking and driving under the influence has caused countless injuries and deaths, and society has reacted by imposing harsh penalties for doing so. Just a couple of beers can put you over the legal limit, even if you feel fine to drive.
DUI Penalties: If you’ve been arrested for Driving Under the Influence (DUI), you have many challenges ahead. One of the first is your DHSMV hearing, an appearance with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. You only have 10 days to schedule your hearing, and if you miss it you will lose your license for a year. Many attorneys overlook this step, or even tell their clients that your DMV problem is a separate matter. We will schedule you hearing, and appear with you, not only in court, but at your DMV hearing as well.
The next hurdle is the evidence against you. Often you will have performed a field sobriety test. Maybe you submitted to a blood, urine, or breathalyzer test. Or perhaps you chose to refuse to submit to any test, and now you need to understand the consequences. Don’t wait to contact a good DUI attorney, as it will only potentially make matters worse, and the situation is not going to just “go away”. It’s time to develop a strategy. Don’t go with a cookie cutter defense; each case is unique. Let us review the case against you and help put this behind you as quickly and affordably as possible.
