Protect Your Driving Privileges And Clean Record With DUI Defense
Florida’s lawmakers and judges take drunk driving seriously in Florida. Even a first-time driving under the influence (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, and possible jail time. Depending on your blood alcohol content or prior offenses, the severity of the penalties will increase.
Understanding the administrative and criminal aspects of your DUI charges can be complicated. But keep in mind that 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 develop compelling arguments for the dismissal of the charges. Contact Michael A. Gottlieb, P.A., for help:

From your initial consultation, until your case is finished, you will work with our team of two dedicated, experienced attorneys. Both of us are former public defenders who know the courts inside and out.

Prosecution and defense of vehicular manslaughter and DUI with injuries rely heavily on medical and scientific reviews of the evidence. We are confident that we can uncover defenses for your benefit that others might fail to recognize.
We will take the time to answer your questions and explain your constitutional rights in terms you understand.
Our Team Approach To Protecting Your Rights
A close review of the facts in your case and the law allows us to identify effective defenses. Having two sets of eyes review your case means we will miss nothing. If the basis of the traffic stop was questionable, we could argue that the DUI stop was unlawful in the first place.
Other factors in your favor may include evidence of 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 member who is struggling with substance abuse, through a Marchman Act petition.
