Drunk Driver Represented By DUI Defense Attorney in Jacksonville FL

A DUI case is one of the most complex types of criminal cases and it can change a person’s life.  If convicted, a DUI sentence carries not just the penalties ordered by the court, such as classes, probation, and community service, but also collateral penalties that come with the conviction, such as a much higher insurance.

It is important to let your attorney know if there was something that prevented you from doing well on the FSEs, such as back problems, vision problems, any previous injuries, even if you did not tell the officer on the day of the arrest. Florida has very serious penalties for even first time DUI offenders. Learn More >>
