You’ve been arrested for Driving Under The Influence, Now What?
In 2015, Florida Law Enforcement agencies arrested 46,922 people for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. They use task forces and DUI check points to enforce the law and use breathalyzers, roadside tests and video evidence in court. Sometimes people make mistakes, this includes the police.
Do I Have A Case Worth Fighting?
We believe every DUI case should be handled by an experienced attorney. During DUI arrests police must follow strict procedure otherwise the case could be thrown out. Furthermore, the equipment used to test and determine indicators like blood alcohol content such as the Breathalyzer must be correctly calibrated and administered by certified officers. The lawyers at The Ticket Clinic look at all of the details surrounding a DUI case and help clients determine if going to trial or negotiating a plea is the right approach.
Did You Refuse A Breath, Blood or Urine Test?
Refusing tests does not guarantee that you won’t be convicted of a DUI. The state can still use evidence such as video or roadside test observations against you. In Florida, you could lose your license for one year for your first refusal. We have deep experience handling these types of cases, click here to see our recent wins.
Getting Your License Back
If you blew a .08 or higher, your license could be suspended for a period of 6 months, if you refused a breath, blood or urine test, your license can be suspended for 12 months, or 18 months if you have previously refused.
You can fight this suspension by filing a Petition For Formal Review with the Department of Motor Vehicles. BUT YOU ONLY HAVE 10 DAYS!!!
If retained, we will file all the necessary paperwork, and attend the hearing on your behalf. These hearings can be won, just look at the list of our recent wins. In each case, the client got their license back, and the suspension was removed from their record. Check out our results.
