State and local governments across the country are cracking down on drunk driving. Since the legal blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08, it is possible for one to have consumed a very small amount of alcohol and still be legally under the influence or intoxicated. If you have found yourself pulled over and arrested for drunk driving (DUI/DWI), seeking the advice and guidance of an experienced DUI/DWI defense lawyer can be in your best interests.
At the Central Florida law office of James & Zimmerman, our attorneys have years of experience handling drunk driving cases along with defending clients in a range of other criminal matters. We are committed to helping you protect your rights and deal with the consequences that may be applied due to the charges. Our criminal defense attorneys strive to have the charges you are facing dismissed. However, when this is not possible, we can either work with prosecution to arrange a plea agreement or construct a strong defense on your behalf and argue your case in court. Contact us today to further discuss your DUI/DWI defense.
Depending on your previous record of DUI/DWI convictions, or the situation in which you were arrested for DUI/DWI, you may be facing a range of penalties. These can include the suspension of your driver's license, monetary fines, a mandatory ignition interlock system and/or jail time. Whether it is your first DUI/DWI offense, felony DUI, second offense DUI or subsequent offense, it is essential to have legal counsel in order to minimize any punishments that may be imposed upon you.
Our firm is committed to examining all types of your situation, including all law enforcement processes and reasons for the traffic stop. We strive to see that all proper procedures were followed, from your traffic stop and arrest to interrogation. If they were not followed to the letter, we may be able to use that in your DUI/DWI defense.
