Minimize Sanctions or Get Your Case Reduced

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:

  • Jail time
  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Community service
  • DUI school
  • Victim impact panel
  • Fines
  • Vehicle impound
  • Installation of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle

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.

Client Education is One of Our Top Priorities

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:

  • Reasons for the stop
  • Performance (or lack thereof) of field sobriety tests
  • Breath or blood test results
  • Involuntary intoxication
  • Wheel witness issues

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.

Act Quickly to Avoid a Driver’s License Suspension

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.
