Florida DUI | Do I Need a Lawyer?

Florida DUI | Do I Need a Lawyer?

If you have just recently been charged with a DUI in Florida the first question you should ask yourself is do I need a Lawyer? The answer to this question should always be yes! A Florida DUI charge is a serious offence that can have serious consequences, especially if your case is not handled properly. Whether your charge is alcohol or drug related or both, simply pleading guilty is more than likely a bad decision that may negatively affect many aspects in your life.

Don’t settle for just any lawyer; you need to take your case to a Florida DUI Lawyer, an attorney who specializes in DUI defense. You need an attorney whom understands the current laws and regulations in place in Florida. One who can navigate the legal system for you, defend your legal rights, and clear up your record to the fullest extent of the law. Hiring an experienced DUI Lawyer will be the best decision you make and should be the first step you take.

Finding a Florida DUI Lawyer

The Florida DUI laws are complex and not every Lawyer will have experience in this area. A lawyer who specializes in DUI cases will have an in-depth knowledge of DUI law. They will have special training, additional education, and most importantly experience in handling DUI cases. Hiring an experienced DUI attorney can have a huge impact on the outcome of your case. So before you hire an attorney to handle your Florida DUI case; you should ask the attorney these basic questions:

  • Do you have specific experience handling DUI cases?
  • How many Florida DUI cases have your handled
  • What were the results? What is your track record?
  • Have you handled any DUI cases that are similar to mine?

What to expect?

The penalties for Florida DUI cases are also very complex. You could lose your license; you could go to jail, in some cases you could even go to prison. For this reason alone, you need to hire an experienced Florida DUI Lawyer to help you obtain the best outcome. Representing yourself is far too risky. In many circumstances your lawyer can have your case dismissed, have your charges reduced, get a reduction in punishment, or even achieve a “Not Guilty” verdict.

Hire a Competent Florida DUI Attorney

The biggest mistake you can make is going at it on your own, or perhaps worse hiring an attorney who is not experienced in DUI law. Be sure to do your due diligence and hire an experienced and competent DUI attorney.
