West Palm Beach First Time DUI AttorneyAbout First Time DUIs
If you have recently been arrested for a first DUI offense, a West Palm Beach DUI lawyer may be able to assist you with getting your charges dropped or in avoiding jail time. In some cases there is a strong option to defend the case and get an acquittal, based upon the evidence in the case. Without the help of an attorney, you are laying yourself open to jail time, fines, community service, a permanent criminal record, probation, alcohol classes, and a suspended license. This is true even if it is your first DUI offense.
The penalties in the state of Florida are supposed to deter drunk drivers. These DUI penalties can be extremely severe and difficult to deal with. Some of them can even affect the rest of your life. Many people that have no criminal history find themselves faced with a DUI charge. We understand how embarrassing and stressful it can be to get involved in the criminal justice system.
Thankfully, we have been able to help many get their charges severely lessened or dropped. We are often able to get charges dismissed by utilizing skilled defense tools that demonstrate to the court why the defendant should not be charged with a DUI. Our firm has over 16 years of experience and our lead attorney has served as both a prosecutor and defense attorney. This gives clients the added benefit of having someone on their side that understands how to prosecute and defend their case.

Another defense strategy has to do with the evidence that the prosecution will bring against you. It is not uncommon for the equipment that is used to test the BAC level of the defendant to be faulty and unreliable. Many feel that the technology the Breathalyzer test is based on is too unpredictable to give an accurate reading. Other times, the officer involved did not administer the test properly, therefore voiding the results. We aggressively challenge the prosecutor’s evidence and fight for our clients future and freedom in first time DUI charges.
