If I am found to have a blood alcohol level of .08% or above, why should I fight my case?
A DUI conviction will always appear on your record. Florida has mandatory adjudication laws for even a first-time DUI. Formal adjudication means that your DUI will become part of your permanent record and you will not be able to expunge it in the future. This can result in serious consequences for the rest of your life as you attempt to maintain a job, apply for a job, continue your education or receive professional licenses. By hiring a DUI attorney you can ensure that your case is defended with zeal and that any and all possible defenses and challenges are raised to protect your rights. A DUI attorney can challenge many parts of your DUI arrest, such as the stop itself, the investigation, the tests given by law enforcement and the equipment used to administer tests.
