When you pulled into your girlfriend’s house the other night, just
in time to celebrate her birthday party with her and some close friends,
you did not anticipate that you were going to be drinking. Even less did
you anticipate that you would be having to contact a drunk driving lawyer
within 24 hours of celebrating her birthday. On your way back to your
home, you were pulled over and arrested for drunk driving, and now the
time is on the clock: You need an experienced drunk driving lawyer, and
you don’t know where to begin looking.
In the state of Florida, there are very harsh drunk driving laws, and a
drunk driving conviction comes with some serious criminal consequences. At
Parks & Braxton PA, we have been serving the
Miami area for over 40 combined years when it comes to fighting drunk driving
charges. Our drunk driving attorneys have helped hundreds of driver’s
fight their drunk driving charges.
Once you have been arrested and released on drunk driving charges, you
then have to deal with the suspension of your driving privileges. You
will also face the criminal charges brought against you by the state attorney’s
office. Again, time is of the essence, as you have ten days to fill out
the necessary paperwork with the DMV. Doing so will prevent having your
license suspended immediately and increase your chances of successfully
applying for a hardship license. One of our drunk driving lawyers will
help you fill out these forms, turn them in on time, and present your
case to the DMV.
In regards to the criminal case, hiring a
drunk driving attorney is imperative to increasing the chances of defending yourself with success.
You may face up to a year or more, depending on the gravity of the charges,
in prison, as well as costly fines. A drunk driving attorney can get to
work on your case and, while gathering key evidence and witness testimony,
they will let the DMV and the state attorney know that you are preparing
to fight for your defense.
Timing is everything when you are facing drunk driving charges. Call Parks
& Braxton PA today to get a free evaluation of your case, and find
out everything you need to know to defend your case! (888) 460-7383.
