DUI is a Crime
You Have 10 Days to Challenge Your DUI with the DMV.
Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol is a serious offense that jeopardizes the lives of drivers, passengers and others sharing the roadways. While drinking and driving is never acceptable under any circumstance, it is very easy to exceed Florida’s legal blood alcohol level of .08 percent. In fact, a single beer or glass of wine consumed less than 30 minutes prior to driving is enough to qualify some people as legally intoxicated. And once that happens, the fines, driving restrictions and social stigmas begin mounting.
If you’re arrested for a DUI, immediately seek legal representation that has experience specifically in the area of DUI arrests. Unlike run-of-the-mill traffic violations, DUIs carry very serious penalties that must be dealt with in the proper manner because your freedom and future driving privileges depend on it.
The penalty for first-time DUI offenders, as well as those who have other adults in the car at the time of arrest, is typically 6 months in jail. If minors are in the car, the jail term jumps to 9 months, plus additional consequences. Fines generally range from $500 to $1,000, plus court costs. And the charges go up from there if you’re not in possession of a current license or registration, are not wearing a seat belt, etc.
The road to restoring full driving privileges is a long one for DUI offenders. Traffic Law Firm attorneys can help you navigate this road and negotiate the many penalties, from court-mandated community service to jail time, on your behalf. Never underestimate the seriousness of the DUI offense. Having the right representation can ultimately mean the difference between paying a small price for a temporary lapse of judgment, to a serious criminal offense that will stick with you for the rest of your life.
Great professional office staff and proven track of success of the Attorney’s. These guys were recommended to me by many different friends. Due to the minor fender bender I got a ticket , that I thought was unreasonable and because of my busy life, needed to be represented. I called the office – my call was answered on the first ring, after I got a light run down by a well educated female that made me at ease, I decide to have the attorneys represent me immediately. Needless to say the ticket was dismissed and I am very happy. A+++ services, A+++ team
