Driving under the influence (DUI) in Florida is serious, carrying stiff penalties for conviction. A DUI charge can affect both your personal and professional life. The Spring Hill DUI lawyers at Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, P.A. fiercely defend the rights and liberties of those accused of driving under the influence. We challenge the prosecution and explore every strategy possible to protect your future.

What are the penalties for driving under the influence in Florida?

Penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs in Florida are serious. And, judges have considerable leeway when it comes to assessing penalties for a DUI conviction. The penalties you face for a first DUI conviction in Florida include:

  • Up to six months in jail
  • Required Victim Awareness Panel
  • DUI school
  • Program Vehicle impoundment
  • Driver’s license suspension of at least 180 days
  • At least 50 hours of community service
  • Fines of at least $250 and court costs
  • Up to one-year probation
  • Permanent criminal record

Our goal is ultimately to get your DUI case dismissed. Our DUI lawyers carefully scrutinize every piece of evidence the state has against you and attack any possible shortcomings. Wrongfully obtained evidence can be suppressed from the record. Suppressed evidence weakens their case and often leads to cases getting dismissed or charges dropped. In addition, we know the limitations of the Breathalyzer and work hard to dismantle the charges against you.

Our DUI lawyers are also well-versed in handling repeat DUI cases. Multiple DUI, driving under the influence charges are serious. If you are a habitual DUI driver and are facing your second, third or subsequent DUI, contact our skilled Spring Hill DUI lawyers today. Multiple DUIs bring increased penalties. Don’t put your future in jeopardy, trust our savvy attorneys to wage an aggressive defense on your behalf.
