today to schedule a confidential consultation with
Attorney William Twyford
about your legal rights, options and goals involving
Defense or other Criminal Defense issues or disputes.
Driving under the Influence, referred to as a DUI in the
State of Florida, is a criminal offense that law
enforcement, prosecutors, and legislators take very serious.
Every law, roadside test, and subjectivity are staked in the
prosecutions favor. Even refusing to submit to taking a
Breathalyzer Test will result in a lawful action of
suspension of your driverís license when the accused is
supposed to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a
court of law.
While the prosecution may seem to have the upper hand, the
fact is you do have legal rights! Seeking experienced legal
counsel in a DUI case may dramatically level the playing
field. Attorney, William Twyford will put the actions of law
enforcement under a microscope to determine if an acceptable
standard of probable cause existed, as well as if any of
your civil rights were violated at any time leading up to or
during the course of your arrest, as well as the validity of
any field sobriety test or breath/blood tests that were
administered. Remember, when law enforcement pulls you over,
whether it is for suspicion of a DUI or not, the officer is
observing every little thing he or she can use to build a
case against you, even if they are smiling and joking with
you at the time.
If you are arrested for a DUI, you only have 10 days from
the date of the DUI arrest to request an administrative
hearing with the department of motor vehicles. If you are
eligible to be granted a hardship license, you may request
to be granted hardship driving privileges while you are
involved in the legal process of defending yourself against
A DUI conviction, and any subsequent DUI convictions over a
specified period from the date of the first DUI conviction
carries mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines. The only
exception is for a first DUI offense, where the court has
the authority to allow the accused to enter into a plea
agreement that involves a DUI Diversion Program. The program
does involve admitting to the DUI crime, therefore giving
you a criminal record. Although this program can be
financially costly, after successfully completing the
requirements of the DUI Diversion Program, you may have the
DUI Criminal Record expunged, as though it never happened.
A criminal conviction for Driving Under The Influence (DUI)
may result in incarceration, lengthy periods of probation,
fines, or other mandatory classes, mandatory programs, or
penalties that the court may have the authority to impose as
a result of a criminal conviction.
If arrested and charged with committing a DUI crime, make
sure you become fully aware of your legal rights and the
options that may be available to you under the law in order
to reach the best possible outcome relating to the defense
of DUI or other criminal charges you are facing.
