Many people charged with DUI (Driving Under the Influence) or DWI(Driving While Intoxicated) in Florida have a particularly difficult time dealing with their criminal charge, often because it is the first crime with which they have ever been charged. DUI or DWI charges are made against approximately 1.5 million drivers every year. These arrests can result in serious consequences. A person who is convicted of a DUI or DWI can face heavy fees and penalties, a loss of driving privileges, and may be sentenced to serve jail time.
If you face a DUI arrest and prosecution, you need access to useful information and rock-solid legal advice. Not all law firms are experienced enough or equipped to handle every DUI case. In fact, there are many firms that dabble in DUI defense, but very few that focus their practices 100% on defending impaired driving cases. Some firms simply take your retainer fee and then try to plead you guilty at the earliest opportunity.
