Florida DUI Convictions Come with Serious Consequences
If the court convicts you of a Dunedin, FL drunk driving charge, you will face significant consequences. This could affect your ability to work, go to school, and even take care of your family. For a first offense, you may face:
- A driver’s license suspension
- Vehicle impoundment
- Jail time
In addition, aggravating factors can increase the penalties you face. This could include:
- Any previous drunk driving convictions
- Any previous implied consent convictions

We Will Appeal Your Administrative License Suspension
When a Florida police officer arrests you on suspicion of a DUI, they will take your driver’s license from you and issue you a temporary permit. This permit lasts for 10 days, giving you a chance to appeal the administrative driver’s license suspension.
If you do not appeal the suspension, it begins when the temporary permit expires. This is completely separate from the criminal case. The administrative suspension continues no matter if the court convicts you or not.
As long as you contact us with sufficient time left, we can file your appeal and go with you to your appeals hearing. We will present evidence and fight for your driving privileges. Call today to get help from our DUI attorneys in Dunedin: 727-828-3900.
