The vast majority of our clients have never been involved with the law or charged with a crime prior to their DUI arrest. As a result, they are often overwhelmed and frightened by the possible consequences. There is reason to be anxious, because the State of Florida has minimum mandatory sentence guidelines for DUI charges. Possible sanctions include:
Our goal is to minimize sanctions or get your case reduced to a lesser charge so that some, if not all, of these sanctions are not imposed.
At Finebloom, Haenel & Higgins, client education is one of our top priorities. At your initial consultation, we will cover a variety of important DUI-related issues, such as:
We encourage you to ask as many questions as are necessary for you to understand your options and feel comfortable retaining our services. After reviewing the facts of a case, including the police report, we may be able to suppress some or all of the evidence against you. If there is a videotape of your arrest, we may be able to obtain it and use it in your defense.
If you have been charged with DUI, it is vital that you retain an attorney within 10 days so that your license suspension can be challenged and your temporary driving permit acquired. You need to find a lawyer who will file the necessary paperwork on your behalf and can even overnight the permit to you once we receive it.
