DUI Defense

Drunk driving is taken seriously in Florida. Even a first DUI charge can land you in jail for up to six months. If you are convicted, you face driver's license revocation, hefty fines and court fees. Depending on your blood alcohol content or prior offenses, the severity of the penalties will increase.

Understanding DUI charges is complicated, but you may have defenses even if you failed field sobriety tests or a breath test after arrest. You need an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side who will build a strong defense to argue for dismissal of the charges.

For more than 25 years, Michael A. Gottlieb, P.A., has successfully defended clients charged with DUI in Fort Lauderdale and across Broward County. Call our offices at 954-462-1005 to discuss your case.

From your initial consultation until your case is finished, you will work with our team of experienced attorneys. We take the time to answer your questions and explain your constitutional rights in terms you understand. Often we uncover defenses others fail to recognize.

Protecting Your Rights

It's a close review of the facts in your case and the law that allows us to identify defenses. Having two sets of eyes review your case means we miss nothing. If the basis of the traffic stop was questionable, we could argue the DUI stop was unlawful in the first place. Other issues may include faulty testing equipment that skews breath or blood test results, police misconduct and excessive or unnecessary force.

In addition to DUI defense, we can assist you or your family with Marchman Act petitions for people struggling with substance abuse.
