After a Florida DUI Arrest
Aggressive Drunk Driving Defense
If you have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI), you are already facing a tough situation. Without practicing caution
and discretion throughout your case, you could make a costly mistake.
A DUI can follow you for many years, depending on the specifics of your case.
You can receive penalties such as a license suspension, monetary fines,
and even incarceration. To help you avoid erring after a DUI arrest, I
have provided information on what mistakes to avoid and actions to take.
Legal Guidance from the Sarasota Criminal Defense Lawyer
Legal procedures can be confusing, and close attention must be paid to
strict deadlines pertaining to your legal and administrative legal proceedings.
The defense lawyer you choose should offer professional experience and
be able to provide personalized counsel during each stage of your case.
Even if your case appears to be simple, you must take all available actions
to defend against your charges and retain the services of a lawyer. As your
Sarasota criminal defense attorney, I can provide extensive experience, dedication, and knowledge of the
laws associated with your case.
Steps to Take After an Arrest
I know the frightening circumstances you are likely facing. I can be your
guide through each step of the criminal process. Most likely, your first
step after the arrest will be to take a chemical test. You are required
to take the blood, breath, or urine test because of Florida's implied
consent law. Anyone who obtains a driver's license in Florida agrees
to submit to a chemical test if involved in a lawful arrest for suspected
DUI. Refusal to take a chemical test will result in a driver's license
After a DUI arrest, posting bail may be required. Most individuals are
released without bail, but some cases require a bondsman to pay a fee.
Bail is a guarantee that you will appear at your hearings. After the fee
is paid to the court, you may be released and notified of a hearing date.
From the moment you are arrested, you will need to prepare for your arraignment.
Also, you only have a limited amount of time - 10 days - to request an
administrative hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles to protect
your driving privileges. My firm can help you fight the charges against
you. I can help you prepare a case to prove that you were not driving
while under the influence and / or challenge the validity of evidence
in the case.
