A Serious Crime With Serious Penalties

DUI is taken very seriously by prosecutors, judges, and juries in Central Florida. There are harsh penalties for a DUI conviction. For a first offense alone, you could be facing a six-month suspension of your license, community service, probation and alcohol rehab classes in addition to paying a fine.

In order to defend against a DUI, it is important to find grounds for challenging the arrest or suppress evidence that was obtained after the arrest. We dig deep to find answers to important questions such as “Was it a valid traffic stop,” “Did the police take proper actions?” and “Was the Breathalyzer test administered properly?”
