What Happens After Your Florida DUI Arrest
Per Florida drinking and driving laws, if your blood alcohol concentration level (BAC) was tested to be at or above 0.08%, as measured by a breath or blood test, you can lose your license immediately. The officer can also take your license away immediately if you refuse a breath test.
After a DUI arrest, you have just 10 days to challenge the suspension of your driver’s license. This is done in an administrative hearing. Our Florida DUI defense attorneys will act quickly to represent you in the Administrative Hearing to preserve your rights and to nullify the suspension of your license. We can also help you attain a 42-day driving permit so you may continue to drive to work while your case is ongoing.
Florida DUI DWI Law – Penalties for Driving Under the Influence
Depending on your case, and whether this is a first offense or you have been arrested previously for driving under the influence, the penalties under Florida DUI statutes may include fines, probation, imprisonment, license revocation, DUI class attendance, and implementation of the Ignition Interlock Device.
In many cases we have been able to negotiate for the total dismissal of DUI charges or get charges pled down to much lesser offenses, such as traffic infractions or reckless driving charges. Our criminal defense attorneys are prepared to vigorously represent and defend you at trial for driving under the influence in Florida. We are committed to getting you a just and equitable outcome.
Florida law can be particularly harsh with so-called recidivist DUI drivers – people who break the law multiple times – as well as those who commit multiple simultaneous driving crimes, such as driving under the influence while driving with a suspended license; driving while intoxicated while on probation, drinking and driving while underage; resisting arrest; and hit and run.
Orlando DUI Lawyers Challenge Charges of Driving Under the Influence
A qualified attorney knows how to find the strengths and weaknesses of the case against you and challenge the prosecution’s evidence. Our lawyers can defend your case by challenging specific aspects of the case, including:
- The administration and readings of the breath, blood or urine test;
- The legitimacy of the traffic stop: Was there probable cause? Did the arresting officer have legal cause to stop, detain or arrest you? Were you pulled over and interrogated on false pretenses?
- The accuracy of the field sobriety test;
- The fairness and propriety of the arresting officer’s opinion and observations.
