  • Is it possible to be arrested for a DUI if my BAC was below the legal limit?

    You can still be in trouble for driving with a BAC below the legal limit, if your normal faculties are impaired. This means that if your ability to see, hear, walk etc. you may be facing charges.

  • Will I lose my driving privileges?

    The arresting officer may take your driver's license when arresting you for a DUI. You then have 10 days to challenge the suspension and fight to retain your driving privileges. To do so, you need to team up with a lawyer and request an administrative hearing through the DMV. If you fail to do so, yes you may have your license suspended.

  • Is a DUI a Misdemeanor or Felony in Florida?

    This determination will depend on your specific case. If it is your first DUI conviction, you will most likely be facing a misdemeanor charge. The same generally goes for a second DUI. If you are facing your third DUI conviction or if you caused serious injury or death during the offense, you could be looking at felony charges.

  • Will I have to serve time in jail?

    Being convicted of a DUI may involve some jail time, but this will also depend on the specific elements of your case. The potential jail time could be one day or years depending on the charges you are facing. The more serious the violation, the more likely you will serve significant jail time.

"A major part of being a successful defense attorney

is knowing how to recognize the weaknesses in the State's case against your client. As a former prosecutor, I ask myself, 'Could I convict this person, and would I do it?' If you know how to successfully prosecute a case, you can then recognize the area or areas that are vulnerable to an attack."
