Criminal Law in Orlando and throughout Central Florida
A simple mistake in judgment – the moment where you decide to put your key in the ignition after a night of drinking – could damage your reputation and career forever.
Every day, people are arrested on DUI charges throughout Central Florida. Many of these people are hard working men and women who have never been in trouble with the law. Unfortunately, the consequences of a DUI conviction can be severe and follow you around for your entire life. In order to prevent one bad decision from impacting your life for years to come, you will need the help of an experienced Orlando DUI attorney.
The Orlando DUI lawyers at The Umanksy Law Firm can help you through this difficult time. We believe that everyone deserves a second chance, and we will fight aggressively to help ensure that you receive yours.
Our lawyers will evaluate the unique factors involved in your case and devise a defense strategy to help you achieve the best possible outcome. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may be able to minimize the scope of your punishment, avoid a conviction, or get the charges reduced or even dropped altogether.
Florida DUI Law
In the State of Florida, you can be arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) when operating a motor vehicle:
- With a blood alcohol level (BAC) of .08 or higher
- While impaired by a chemical substance
- While impaired by a controlled substance
A DUI charge may be made against intoxicated boat and water vessel operators as well.
Simply failing the breathalyzer is not enough to justify a solid conviction or strong penalties. Our Orlando DUI defense team will examine all the details surrounding your arrest, including roadside test protocol, probable cause, accuracy of the breath sample, and any possible constitutional rights violations. We will look for any places where the arresting officer made a mistake in protocol in order to help you successfully challenge your DUI charges.
If you are a first time offender, you may be eligible for a pre-trial diversion program resulting in dropped charges.
Experienced Orlando DUI Defense Attorneys
As former prosecutors who now represent DUI and DWI defendants, our attorneys know the angles prosecutors use to secure a conviction, and we know how to build strong DUI defenses to combat the prosecutors’ strategy. We have handled thousands of DUI cases, and we have seen just about any possible scenario you may face.
Because a DUI conviction will remain on your record for life, we will try to avoid a conviction if at all possible. In cases where a conviction is inevitable, we can work to minimize your criminal consequences and help you avoid jail time through alternative sentencing measures.
