Timing Is Everything - When To Call A Drunk Driving Attorney

Posted By Parks & Braxton, PA || 13-Jan-2016

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.
