Florida DUI Penalties: The punishments for drunk driving in Florida are very severe, but the right attorney can make the difference between going to jail and going free, and between a lengthier and shorter sentence.
In addition to incarceration, there are also steep fines, drug or alcohol classes, license suspensions and revocations and other collateral consequences such as loss of job, immigration consequences, and cancelled insurance. A good Florida DUI lawyer will help you negotiate and minimize both the criminal and civil license penalties, as well minimize or eliminate the damage the charge has on your life.
There is simply too much at stake in a Florida drunk driving case. You need the help of a professional and seasoned DUI defense lawyer.
Florida DUI Court Process: Navigating the criminal court process can be daunting in any case, but is especially so in DUI cases. This is because, due to the high volume of charges that the courts and prosecutors must process, and due to the fact that a Florida drunk driving charge is truly the “every-man’s” charge, prosecutors and judges may see your case as “routine” and less than serious unless you have a strong voice in the courtroom pointing out that this event and its outcome will have a lasting impact on your life and the lives of those you care about.
In addition to the criminal court process which will determine your guilt or innocence, as well as your sentence and terms of probation, you will also need to navigate the civil license and driving aspects of your FL DUI case. That means dealing with an even more crowded system: The Florida DHSMV. You need a lawyer who regularly handles FL DUI driving and license suspension issues, and who knows how to navigate the system for you. Your lawyer’s expertise should always include a working knowledge of Florida implied consent law, the Florida administrative license suspension hearing process, and the law that governs ignition interlock devices in Florida.
The Florida DUI case against you may not be as strong as you think
Were you stopped at a sobriety roadblock? Were you pulled over without a good reason? Were you given a chemical test for alcohol or drugs? Florida DUI chemical testing is not the foolproof science that the government would like to make you think. For example, did you know that crime labs and breath test maintenance programs have committed documented errors, and that a lot more fly under the radar? A good Florida DUI lawyer will always stay a step ahead of these types of issues, and will have a handle on all of the latest issues that might benefit you and your case. If you don’t have a lawyer, or if you chose the wrong law firm, you may never learn about internal affairs discipline of officers involved in your mater, about contaminated evidence within crime labs, about breath test machine maintenance failures, about missing or disciplined witnesses, and about many other things that can literally make the difference between you conviction and acquittal.
