When charged with a DUI, you face persistent humiliation, loss of close friendships, family strife and stress, and irreparable damage to your business.
A DUI charge can affect more than just you, who was behind the wheel. It can impact your spouse (or future spouse), your employment, work relationships, and your future.
The State’s Case against you is not “Open and Shut.”
You have been arrested or convicted of a DUI or drunk driving violation in Florida, and you feel resigned that the case is “open and shut.” Don’t jump to a conclusion that may not be accurate! There are numerous rules and procedures that must be followed to ensure your rights are respected and the law is upheld. There are many technical factors and legal elements to your arrest of which the average person is not even aware!
“I’ve had numerous DUI cases. DUIs are very subjective. Success in a DUI case is about going through the details. For example: The arresting officer describes my client as obviously impaired. But let’s look at the tape. Let’s listen to the tape – the tape is clear: His speech is not slurred. He’s not wavering. He actually did not step off the line. My client in fact did count the right number of steps. So in a DUI case, It’s not just what the officer says, it’s also the question of do the facts, the evidence, tell a different story?
The prosecution only mentions what they believe will help their case. My job is to explore the other side – to point out all the facts and details that may go against, or indicate that what they are alleging is not the complete story.”
For example, the arresting officer may have stopped your vehicle for DUI without a legal justification. The officer may have incorrectly administered the sobriety tests. The breathalyzer may not have been operating correctly. In addition, law enforcement at the scene may not have advised you of your rights during your DUI arrest.
