If you or a loved one has been arrested, indicted or being investigated by police, please call my Tampa office today for a free evaluation of your case. Remember, you are presumed to be “NOT GUILTY” and you are not REQUIRED to answer any questions without your attorney present.
If eligible, you are entitled to get a Temporary Driver’s Permit even after your arrest for DUI. This Temporary Permit will allow you to continue to drive, possibly during the duration of the court case.
You have a right to contest your Driver’s License suspension with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (Be aware you only have 10 days from the date of arrest to do this.)
You have a right to question the Police Investigation; the Reason for the Stop and the Breath Test Results: keep in mind that DUI is at “the time” of driving and not hours after your arrest.
You may be able to resolve your case without coming back to the state of Florida or even ever appearing in a courtroom.
You may be allowed to complete a jail sentence by house arrest; SCRAM (Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring) or drug treatment.
Do not talk about your criminal case with anyone but an experienced Tampa criminal attorney. Exercise your right to remain silent.
Gather all information regarding your arrest and criminal charge/s.
Document important facts, persons and anything else you think is important to your case to review with your criminal defense attorney.
Just because you were arrested does not mean you have been formally charged by the Hillsborough County State Attorney’s Office with a crime. The formal charging is a separate process that could take as long as 21 days so it is important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney fighting for you from the start.
Once the charges are filed, you have an absolute right to make the State Attorney prove their case against you beyond a reasonable doubt according to each and every element of the crime.
Having an experienced Tampa criminal attorney will give you options for a better outcome.
Call me today and let me help you, step by step, through this process. You will always speak with me; I will handle your case from start to finish. My goal is to maximize your options and minimize risks and exposure. I am committed to not waste your time or resources and provide you the quality affordable defense you deserve.
