Driving Under the Influence


  •  10 days for DMV administrative hearing
  • Breathalyzers and field exercise results can be questioned
  • Hardship licenses are available


Driving under the Influence is a serious infraction with severe penalties including fines, license suspensions,increased insurance premiums and even jail time. Remember, when you are arrested with DUI charges, your arrest includes a cancellation of all driving privileges. Your DUI citation acts as your temporary driving permit for only ten days following the arrest. If you or your attorney does not request a DMV hearing within 10 calendar days,(including weekends) following your arrest you forfeit your ability to challenge any DMV administrative suspension. You may be asking yourself many of the following questions: Should I pay the other traffic ticket that I got with my DUI ticket? What if I live out of state - must I stay in the state or do I have to come back to Florida for a court appearance? Could the DUI affect my job? What about my insurance rates? If a video of my field sobriety test was made, how will it be used? May I drive now? Can I get Hardship license? What does the Breathalyzer test prove? Should I have taken the breath test or refused it? How long will this case take? How much will it cost? What if I have a previous DUI? What if I damaged property - or injured someone - or both? Could I go to jail? Depending on the unique circumstances of each case, there are numerous challenges that can be made to fight a DUI charge. The circumstances of each traffic stop, arrest, Breathalyzer test and equipment must be carefully evaluated.
