Florida is very strict about enforcing the DUI law. Any person found to be driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.08%, or more is considered to be driving under the influence and may be ticketed. There are substantial fines and stringent penalties associated with a DUI ticket. In addition to high fines, the offender is required to perform community service, attend DUI school, may have an ignition interlock installed (all of which has to be paid for by the offender), and perhaps even face jail time.
The total expenses may run into thousands of dollars; also, the conviction will remain on your record, a black mark that will embarrass you for 50 years. So what do you do? You can decide not to pay up, and fight the ticket instead; engage a Florida DUI lawyer to represent you in court.
There are many DUI lawyers in Florida; so how do you decide which one to retain to represent you in court?
First of all, ask friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues if they have used the services of a DUI lawyer, and how good or bad they were; this would be your best starting point.
Do an online search for DUI attorneys; what do previous clients have to say about their services?
Check their track record; how many cases similar to yours have they handled? How many have they won? How many charges did they manage to get dismissed and how many reduced?
If you have contacted a firm of lawyers, ascertain which attorney will represent you, and have an in-depth discussion with them covering all the angles of your case.
Enquire about the intended defense strategy, and how much success they have had in the past with similar tactics.
What factors can go against me in court?
Ask them about the penalties you may face in the event of a conviction – what will be the fine? Will I have to go to jail? Will my license be suspended? and so on..
How long will it take for the case to be resolved? This is also crucial information as it will help you plan.
