Understand what you are facing with a DUI charge

Drunk driving is a serious matter because it can lead to death, injury and property destruction. All of these are reasons why the laws in Florida are so harsh when it comes to drunk driving.

If you are facing a first-time drunk driving charge, you might be very worried. The entire process might seem mystifying. It is imperative that you take steps to learn about the different penalties that you face. In the case of charges for driving while drunk, you face criminal justice penalties, as well as administrative penalties. These can all make it difficult for you to live your life as you know it.

We understand that this is a difficult time for you. On top of facing the possibility of fines and imprisonment, you are also looking at a driver's license suspension. This is something that you might be able to fight, but you need to make sure that you take action quickly.

Since this is your first offense, you face up to six months in jail in most cases. If you have a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) of .15 percent or higher or have a minor in the vehicle, you face more time -- up to nine months in jail.

You also face the possibility of having to complete community service to help atone for your conviction. You might even be placed on probation for up to one year.

We can help you to determine how to handle your defense. This isn't something that is always easy, but it is usually possible. You might want to focus on being found not guilty, but you might decide to focus on minimizing the penalties. We can help you get your defense together.
