State Criminal Defense - DUI

State Criminal Defense

What type of DUI's do we handle?

Boating Under the Influence: The Miami area is a great place to enjoy the water. A beautiful day enjoying the waterways can turn ugly when law enforcement accuses of operating a watercraft while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The penalties imposed will be based upon whether an accident occurred, as well as cases of accident with injury or death. Essentially, you will face the same penalties as operating a vehicle DUI.

DUI Manslaughter: Cases in which another person has died in an accident, and you are accused of being DUI and your negligent driving is responsible for the fatal accident, you can face charges of DUI manslaughter. Find out about the various defenses that could be effective for this serious felony charge.

Ignition Interlock Device: Some people who have been convicted of a DUI offense will have the requirement to have an ignition interlock device installed in their vehicles, and will have to pay for this service. These devices can make life difficult for you, and if you violate the terms of your probation and the device registers any alcohol in your breath, the consequences can be significant.

Sobriety Checkpoints: The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that sobriety checkpoints are legal, which is not the case in every state. If you were pulled over at one of these roadside DUI checkpoints and were subsequently arrested and charged, find out what could be done to defend you.

DMV Hearings: You have a very short period of time to schedule a hearing to challenge the suspension of your license. Once you have been arrested and charged with DUI, it is necessary to seek representation to address this critical issue for you.

DUI Penalties: The penalties imposed upon those convicted of DUI in Florida are very extreme. A first time misdemeanor DUI can lead to fines as high as $500, license suspension, and worse punishments if there was a child in the vehicle, or if you have a prior conviction.

Refusing a Breathalyzer: You are required under state law to submit to the Breathalyzer or blood test. If you refuse, you face immediate penalties. You may believe you have no hope if you refused the chemical test. Find out what could be done to reduce the damage from a professional Miami criminal lawyer.

Underage DUI: Young drivers are subject to a "zero tolerance" policy for DUI driving in our state. If any person under 21 is tested for blood alcohol content (BAC) and registers at .02 or higher, the law has been violated, and there will be legal and personal consequences.
