A Helpful Florida DUI Lawyer Advocating For You

You may think that your life is over when arrested for DUI. You worked hard to get where you are, but one mistake of drinking and driving can set in motion a chain reaction that can have significant consequences without the help of an experienced DUI lawyer. Florida Ticket Firm in Tampa is a team of DUI attorneys who are well-respected and know the ins and outs of defending drivers charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

You must remember that you are innocent until proven otherwise, but it is much easier for the Florida State prosecution attorney to prove your guilt if you do not immediately retain a criminal defense attorney who is well versed in the steps necessary to pursue your acquittal and dismissal of the DUI charge. Florida Ticket Firm works with knowledgeable criminal defense attorneys in Hollywood who have years of experience attacking the state’s DUI case.

We will take immediate action on your behalf and build your defense to increase the likelihood that the charges will be dropped or dismissed. We understand the life-changing consequences of the charges you are facing and know where to find the weaknesses in the state’s case.

There are numerous ways for a DUI attorney to question the validity of these tests, depending on the circumstances, and to challenge the state’s case.

The State’s Attorney will try to show that your powers were impaired by alcohol or a controlled substance while you were operating a motor vehicle. The State’s Attorney can prove that you were driving under the influence by showing that your blood alcohol content (BAC) was above the legal limit or that you tested positive for a controlled substance in your system. The prosecutor may try to show that your BAC exceeds the legal limit by taking a BAC reading, a toxicology test, or a field sobriety test. There are numerous ways for a DUI attorney to question the validity of these tests, depending on the circumstances, and to challenge the state’s case.

In addition, the State will present circumstantial evidence of his conduct, appearance and gestures at the time he was pulled over, including whether he was fully rehearsed, and driving erratically. The police officer, state trooper or deputy sheriff will describe if any odor of alcohol or marijuana was smelled on you or your vehicle and if you had red eyes, red eyes or glassy eyes which could suggest that you were under the influence alcohol or a controlled substance. However, our experienced Tampa DUI ticket attorneys know how to question law enforcement to drill holes in the state’s case whenever possible.

Consequences of a DUI Charge in Florida

Not only do you have to deal with criminal DUI charges and potentially go to jail and loss of your liberty, you also have to deal with the Florida administrative process and administrative hearings with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) regarding your Florida driver’s license, including hearings to determine whether and if your driver’s license will be suspended, for how long, and whether you will be able to obtain a restricted emergency license to drive to work and vice versa.

Let An Experienced Attorney Fight For You

Most people charged with DUI are good people who made a mistake. However, that mistake can destroy your life and all you have worked so hard to build, including your family, your career and your reputation. But our experienced attorneys know how to cross-examine law enforcement to punch holes in the state’s case.

Here are some crucial things to remember if arrested for DUI:

 

  • What you say can and will be used against you. Speaking with law enforcement without an attorney present is one of the biggest mistakes you can make when charged with DUI.

 

  • The prosecuting attorney may seek to prove that your blood alcohol content (BAC) exceeded the legal limit via a Breathalyzer reading, a blood toxicology test or a field sobriety test. But Breathalyzer tests may not be accurate, especially if the arresting officer does not know how to accurately operate the device.

 

  • Not only must you deal with the criminal DUI charges, you also have to deal with the state hearings to determine whether your driver’s license will be suspended.

 

You do not want to defend yourself against a DUI charge. The longer you wait to speak with an attorney, the stronger the state will be able to make its case and the weaker your position. Remember, it is much easier for prosecuting attorneys to prove your guilt if you do not retain an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
