In the face of DUI charges, you should retain the services of a skilled legal advocate sooner rather than later.
At the Law Office of Jody L. Fisher, we know the impact that a DUI conviction can have on you and your future. We believe that effective drunk driving defense takes hard work and a dedication to truly caring about meeting peoples' needs. We make it our priority to get to know the real person behind the criminal charges.
DUI charges can be complicated because the severity of your charges will depend on the circumstances of the incident. There are a lot of factors that come into play when determining precise charges, including your blood alcohol content (BAC), the passengers in your car, whether an accident was caused, whether anyone sustained injuries, and whether it was your first offense.
Potential penalties include:
- Jail time
- Community services
- License suspension
- Mandatory ignition interlock device installed in your car
In Florida, driving with a BAC of .08% or more is grounds for a DUI charge. Depending on the situation, you could be charged with either a misdemeanor or a felony.
