Our Palm Harbor DUI Attorneys Will Fight Your Charges
The consequences of a Palm Harbor drunk driving conviction are significant—fines, losing your driver’s license, impoundment of your car, and even time behind bars. And that is just for a first-time conviction.
The consequences may increase in both severity and scope under certain circumstances. This includes instances where:
- You have previous DUIs on your record
- You have previous implied consent convictions
- You caused an accident, and someone else suffered injuries
- Your blood alcohol content exceeded certain limits
- There were other extenuating circumstances in your case
No matter the accusations you face or the details of your case, we will aggressively fight the allegations and/or charges. There is no reason why you need to try to go through this process alone. Our attorneys have the experience and tools necessary to build a solid defense strategy in your case.
We Can Challenge Your Administrative License Suspension
Florida law requires the police officer who arrests you to take your driver’s license and give you a temporary permit that lasts for ten days. Within these ten days, you may request a formal review hearing to contest the administrative suspension of your driver’s license. This administrative suspension applies to everyone arrested for DUI or an implied consent violation, regardless of whether they receive a conviction.
If you call our office during the ten-day period, we can file your appeal and represent you during your appeals hearing. We will present evidence and fight for you to keep your license. In cases where there is strong evidence to show your innocence, they court may drop the suspension and allow you to keep your driving privileges.
We Will Build a Strong Defense Strategy for You
At Goldman Wetzel, our DUI attorneys in Palm Harbor can build a solid defense strategy that may help us prevent the District Attorney (DA) from filing charges or secure another favorable outcome in your case. Let us aggressively counter the allegations of police and prosecutors. We may be able to:
