Florida Criminal Defense Firm Dedicated to Defending a DUI

The majority of people have no clue what their legal rights are, making it likely that they are unfamiliar with how they can properly defend themselves against harsh penalties that could end up costing them their driving privileges, job, career, and personal relationships.

There is a lot more to a DUI arrest that is open to interpretation than most people realize. A law enforcement officer may base an arrest off of assumption and perception rather than on fact.

Police often look at the following:

  • Motorist’s driving pattern
  • Physical appearance
  • Results of a chemical test
  • Field sobriety exercise interpretations

All of these factors are often immediately taken as evidence when they may actually be debatable.

One of the ways in which our lawyers defend the rights of those charged with DUI is to highlight the difference between physical and mental impairment. If the prosecution proves physical impairment, this doesn’t mean you are guilty. Rather, our attorneys may be able to prove that you were not mentally impaired, therefore supporting that the alleged physical impairment resulted from injury or fatigue rather than alcohol.
