A DUI Charge Is Really Two Separate Cases
Florida DUI laws have two components. The first component is the actual criminal DUI charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated or impaired. The second component is the administrative hearing pertaining to your driving privileges.
We believe it is important for our clients to understand the charges against them, as well as the implications of the charges. We have defended hundreds of clients charged with DUI in Florida. Our experienced DUI attorneys have a unique perspective when it comes to criminal defense cases such as drunk driving. Our attorneys consist of former prosecutors who have worked on every type of DUI case from first time misdemeanor DUI'S to DUI Manslaughter cases. This experience gives us specific insight many criminal defense attorneys do not have.
There are 6 types of DUI cases:
- DUI 1st arrest
- DUi 2nd arrest
- DUI 3rd arrest
- DUI 4th or more arrest
- DUI with injury
- DUI with death (DUI Manslaughter)
Each type of DUI carries different penalties with it, some involve mandatory jail time.
