Why today?

  • Your arraignment, your next required court appearance, is coming up soon and your attorney can go for you. Florida law permits an attorney to file a not guilty plea on your behalf.

  • A DUI legal team needs time to review the details and investigate your case. DUI cases are often won based on details. It is important to start the investigation ASAP as details and evidence at the arrest scene can change, and witnesses can become difficult to locate.

  • An experienced DUI legal team can guide you so that you do not make any of the common mistakes that, once made, may make it nearly impossible for you to recover from.

  • DUI cases are complex and more complicated to defend than many felonies. Not all criminal defense attorneys do DUI defense, or do it well, it is a specialty.
