Choose a DUI lawyer efficiently and diligently. DUI charges are serious — not only do you lose your license, but if you're convicted, you may face jail time, thousands of dollars in fines, fees, and costs, as well as a massive increase in your insurance premiums. If you are required to maintain a valid Florida driver's license for work, you may also lose your job. You must request a DMV hearing 10 days after your arrest to contest your driver's license suspension.
Our Florida DUI defense attorneys can help reduce or eliminate the following mandatory penalties:
|Florida DUI Penalties||First Offense||Second Offense||Third Offense|
|Jail||Up to 9 Months||Up to 1 Year||Up to 1 Year|
|Fines||$500 - $2,000||$1,000 - $4,000||$2,000 - $5,000|
|License Suspension1||6 Months - 1 Year||5 Years*||10 Years*|
1 In some cases, your license suspension may be overturned, but you must act quickly after your arrest — you only have 10 days from the date your were arrested to ask for a formal review of your license suspension. If you fail to act in those 10 days to protect your license, you may forever waive your right to review.

Many DUI Cases Have Problems
Remember — you may waive important rights if you wait to contact a lawyer after your arrest. Many DUI cases have problems — the officer may not have had a reason to stop you, or may have violated your right to remain silent. Many of the "tests" given by police are questionable at best, and many officers are unable to correctly identify and analyze the results of those tests. The earlier you contact a qualified DUI defense lawyer, the better your chances of remaining free!
