First-Time DUI Lawyer in Gainesville

What is unique about your first ever DUI in Florida?

If you have been arrested for DUI, you are not alone. In 2013, there were more than 61,000 DUI arrests in this state. Even if this is your first offense, with blood alcohol content (BAC) less than 0.15%, if convicted, you could face penalties of up to 6 months in jail, $500 to $1,000 in fines, and driver's license suspension. If your BAC was 0.15% or higher, or if you were accompanied by a person 18 years of age or younger, you could be facing jail time of up to 9 months and $1,000 to $2,000 in fines.

The sooner you get an experienced Gainesville DUI lawyer involved in your case, the better. At Kinsell Law Firm, we have many years of experience handling DUI cases. We have 2 former state prosecutors on our criminal defense team who have prosecuted countless DUI cases. We can use the knowledge gained from that experience to protect and defend our clients. We offer a free consultation, and we urge you to take advantage of this opportunity.

First time DUI? Get outstanding representation.

We have implied consent laws in this state that require drivers to submit to a breath or blood test if pulled over by a police officer. If you refuse to take the test, your driver's license will be automatically suspended for 1 year. If you take the test and your BAC is 0.08% or higher, your driver's license will be suspended.

A knowledgeable Gainesville DUI attorney with our firm may be able to help you secure a temporary driving permit while we aggressively pursue protection of your license. The temporary permit would allow you to drive to and from work, school, your religious affiliation, or the supermarket with no restriction as to time of day, but to no other locations that those specified.

"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."
