Jacksonville DUI Attorney – We Fight For Your Rights

Jacksonville DUI Attorney

The first question most people ask is, “Do I really need an attorney?”  The short answer is, yes, an experienced Jacksonville DUI Attorney is your best chance at minimizing the consequences of a DUI or DWI conviction.

In Florida, driving under the influence of alcohol, chemical substances, or controlled substances is taken very seriously.

When a police officer pulls you over on suspicion of drunk driving, you’ll most likely face the embarrassment of a sobriety test.  At a breath alcohol level (BAC) of .08 or above, you are considered functionally impaired and you are about to be in serious trouble, if proven guilty and convicted.

Effects of a DUI Arrest

A DUI arrest in the state of Florida immediately triggers two events: (1) a court appearance and (2) a DMV suspension.

First, the driver charged with DUI or DWI must appear in court.  Then, the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles will suspend your driving privileges.  It is crucial that you act quickly to guard your license. You only have 10 days from the date of arrest to request an administrative hearing to keep your driving privilege.

Depending on severity, DUI and DWI Convictions can lead to:

– Fines of $500 – $5,000

– Mandatory community service of 50 hours or more

– Probation

– Loss of drivers license

– Impounding of your vehicle

– Imprisonment

Drunk driving can take a serious toll on your life if you are not adequately prepared to legally defend yourself in court.
