DUI Defense

In the state of Florida, it is against the law to consume a certain amount of alcohol and get behind the wheel of a vehicle. If you have been pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, including prescription medication, you will need the help of a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Driving under the influence charges are very serious and very difficult to defend; however it is not impossible. DUI charges are defensible with help from an experienced lawyer. After a person is arrested for DUI, an attorney must investigate the original police stop, the testing methods used, including the field sobriety test and any blood tests, and the arrest itself. If an officer acted unlawfully or broke protocol during this time, the evidence may not be strong enough for a conviction.
