Protecting Your Rights, Future & Freedom

If you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs in Florida, you need strong legal defense right away. Otherwise, you could be convicted and face severe penalties.

For a first-time conviction, you could face:

  • A revoked driver’s license for anywhere between 180 days to 1 year
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device
  • Fines ranging from $500 to $2,000
  • Up to six months in jail

These penalties may be enhanced under certain circumstances, such as if this is a subsequent offense or if a minor was riding in your vehicle at the time of your arrest.

An individual may be charged with DUI if their blood alcohol content (BAC) is over the limit of 0.08%. This limit varies for certain people. It is 0.02% for individuals under 21 years old and 0.04% for commercial drivers.

Law enforcement will determine your BAC through the use of a chemical test. This chemical test will analyze your blood, urine, or saliva, and it is highly recommended that you do not refuse to take this test. For a first-offense refusal of a chemical test, you will face an automatic one-year suspension of your driver’s license. Once you have been arrested or charged with DUI, you should contact experienced representation immediately.

About “Wet Reckless”

In some cases, we may be able to reduce a charge of DUI down to a wet reckless. A wet reckless is essentially a conviction for reckless driving with alcohol and is considered to be much less serious than a DUI conviction.

Wet reckless’ are usually the result of a plea bargain and can only be achieved in instances where:

  • There was no accident
  • The amount of alcohol was not significantly over the limit
  • The defendant has no prior DUI or wet reckless convictions
