Defending DUI Cases in Miami-Dade Since 1982

When it comes to DUI charges, time is of the essence! Current DUI laws in the state of Florida provide for an immediate suspension of your license upon arrest in most cases. You only have 10 days to file an appeal of this suspension - so it is imperative that you act quickly. Contact Jonathan Blecher, P.A. and speak to a member of my friendly support staff today to set up a no-charge, no-obligation consultation.

Over the past 20 years, the state attorney's offices along with the non-profit organization Mothers Against Drunk Driving have pushed the Florida Legislature to enact harsher penalties in DUI cases. This is true all over the state of Florida and in counties such as:

  • Miami-Dade
  • Broward
  • Palm Beach
  • Monroe
  • Collier

We also serve cities such as:

  • Miami
  • Miami Beach
  • Coral Gables
  • Aventura
  • Kendall

This makes it increasingly more difficult for DUI lawyers in Florida to challenge DUI cases for their clients or to obtain the lesser charge of reckless driving. While Miami-Dade DUI defendants are not generally given jail time for first offenses, the state attorney's office often asks for a jail sentence upon conviction after trial.
