According to the Florida Department of Highway and Safety, any individual operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% and higher can be charged with driving under the influence (DUI). Since penalties for a first conviction can land you in jail for up to six months, you need an experienced DUI attorney. In fact, anyone charged with a DUI in Florida may feel as if they are guilty until proven innocent. That’s because it is the only criminal offense where the state can compel a defendant to provide evidence that can be used to convict them. And refusing to take a breathalyzer or provide a blood sample is in itself a crime resulting in the automatic suspension and revocation of a driver’s license. As an experienced DUI attorney, we will fight hard to protect your rights and aggressively defend you against the charges.
Whenever you have been arrested for a crime, it is important to understand your rights: You have the right to remain silent and refuse to answer any questions. You have the right to have an attorney represent you during any and all questioning. If you cannot afford a criminal defense lawyer the court will appoint a public defender at no charge. While public defenders are excellent attorneys, their extremely high case load prevents them from spending the time they need for each case. So your case may not get the full attention it deserves. That’s why you need to hire an experienced private criminal defense attorney who will look out for your best interest and provide you with the best possible defense. Your freedom may depend on it.
