We Can Fight For Your Rights

DUIs are some of the most commonly committed crimes in the country. Unfortunately, they can have serious implications for your future. If you have been charged with a DUI, you need to fully understand the charges and what your options are to move forward.

What Is a DUI?

DUI stands for "driving under the influence." This is also sometimes labeled as DWI for "driving while impaired" or OUI for "operating under the influence." These terms all refer to operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Most people assume alcohol is the biggest factor in DUI cases, but illegal and prescription drugs may also be factors. Some cases involve mixtures of alcohol and drugs.

What Are the Consequence of a DUI?

A first-time offender in Florida faces serious repercussions if convicted.

Consequences include:

  • Moderate fine up to $500
  • Up to 50 hours of community service
  • Up to six months of imprisonment or more depending on mitigating factors
  • Loss of license for 180 days
  • 12 hours of DUI school
  • Up to one year of probation

Convictions also lead to more expensive car insurance rates and costly legal fees. Moreover, Florida has a zero tolerance policy for underage drivers. A DUI conviction for an underage driver leads to a six-month license suspension. There are additional penalties for multiple convictions.

What Should You Do When Charged with a DUI?

Because DUIs are so common, it is tempting to think they are not serious. This could not be further from the truth. Each case is different, but the following steps are a useful guide.

If charged, consider the following:

  • Understand the charges
  • Know your rights
  • Examine police action
  • Choose a defense
  • Understand the process
