MIAMI DUI LAWYERS

Have you been charged with driving under the influence? It’s a scary and vulnerable time and you might be overwhelmed with the next steps you should take. A DUI charge is a serious matter that may lead to serious consequences and even prison time for civil damages. If someone was injured or killed while you were driving under the influence, you will need to retain an attorney that specializes in these sensitive cases. Selecting a knowledgeable and aggressive attorney is key!

In recent years, DUI arrests have increased in Miami, especially Miami Beach. In a city brimming with world-famous bars, nightclubs, and an iconic beachfront, the odds of drunk driving are high. If you are facing a DUI charge, it is imperative that you retain legal representation, especially in the state of Florida. A DUI in Miami is subject to more severe penalties than other states. Florida also has the toughest DUI laws on the books. It is vital to hire a lawyer that specializes in defending DUI cases.

Benefits of Hiring a DUI Lawyer

1. Alleviate stress and worry

An experienced lawyer can explain the charges so you have a clear picture of where you stand. DUI attorneys have extensive training and experience to help you with your case.

2. Help plead lesser charges or dismissals

A reputable lawyer will fight for your rights. A DUI conviction has serious consequences, but an experienced attorney can often get charges dropped or reduced to lesser charges in exchange for a more lenient sentence. The attorney may also be able to dismiss the case.

3. Experience and training

A lawyer that defends DUI cases exclusively knows the court system and how to best represent the case in a court of law. A huge advantage of retaining an attorney for the case is that they know the important legal rules and standards for the prosecution of driving under the influence. With extensive experience and training, the DUI lawyer can find technicalities involving a suspect's case that could have charges dropped and the case thrown out altogether. A DUI lawyer will know to ask for alternate plea options to protect your criminal history and driver’s license. Lastly, a DUI lawyer knows which arguments are likely to appeal and carry more weight with the prosecutor than someone representing him or herself.

4. Inside Information and Contacts

From the local police officer to the prosecutor, to the judge, a DUI lawyer will know the major players involved in the prosecution. The DUI lawyer will also have a working relationship with the prosecutors that handle the case. That's a huge advantage because some prosecutors will allow pleas to alternate charges in exchange for a higher fine and stiffer counseling. You may even be able to keep your driver's license. But these alternatives depend heavily on local practices and the facts of your case.

How much does it cost to hire a DUI Lawyer in Miami?

There are many variables that will determine the average cost of a DUI lawyer in the State of Florida. Market rates, state bar rules, accepting a plea or taking your case to trial will influence the cost to retain a lawyer. The more complex your case is, the more time and resources the attorney will have to spend to prepare your case. The average cost for a plea can range from $750 to $1,500 for a plea. The rates for a trial may range anywhere from $2,500 to $25,000 depending on the offense and the complexity of your case.
