Receiving a DUI conviction in Tampa can adversely affect your life. Such convictions can lead to the suspension of your driver’s license, required community service hours, your vehicle’s impoundment, and/or DUI school. If this isn’t your first conviction, consequences will be even harsher. As an experienced DUI attorney serving the Tampa area, I will represent your interests by working to prevent a conviction or minimize the consequences.
If you receive a DUI in Tampa, your license could be suspended for 6 to 18 months. The length of time of your suspension is determined based on the factors of your arrest. Did you blow over 0.5? Did you refuse to take the Breathalyzer test? What is your prior driving record? All these items are taken into consideration for your Tampa DUI.
We are also proficient in the courtroom, but often use mediation to resolve disputes efficiently. Other professionals, including valuation experts, tax experts, and mental health professionals, are often called upon when doing so will help achieve our clients’ goals. Our representation is aggressive while not sacrificing ethics.
The Formal Review hearing at the Tampa courthouse could be essential to the defense of your case as it allows me to question the arresting officer under oath. It will help me discover evidence or testimony that can be used in your defense.
If you qualify, I will argue for a hardship license, a limited driver’s license that would allow you to drive to and from work. Because I am an experienced DUI lawyer serving the Tampa area, you will have the best representation throughout your case.
The biggest factor determining the outcome of your DUI case is what evidence the prosecutor has. It is my job to analyze this evidence and determine what will help or hurt your case. Did you take a Breathalyzer test? What was the result? Is there a video recording of your arrest? Do you look intoxicated in the video or coherent and coordinated? Did the officer read you your rights?
As your DUI attorney, I will file motions to exclude evidence, suppress evidence, and/or dismiss the criminal charges. In short, I will do everything possible to make sure the evidence used in the case was obtained legally and that anything that can be used in your defense is brought to light.
