Extensive Knowledge of Florida DUI Laws
If you are facing DUI charges in Florida, you should know that this is not the end of the world! With strong, knowledgeable and experienced representation on your side, there is no reason to give up hope. As a DUI defense lawyer based in Miami, I have defended more than 3,000 DUI and suspended license cases since 1982.
I know Florida DUI laws from my years serving as an Assistant State Attorney, my service on the Florida Bar DUI and Traffic Court Rules Committee - which is responsible for writing DUI and traffic court rules - and my more than 30 years of experience in criminal law. I am confident that I can help see you through this situation and handle your case efficiently and effectively.
For 80% of the clients I represent - businesspeople, college students, young professionals - this is their first arrest. Good people get arrested, too. I understand that you may be feeling scared, intimidated, overwhelmed, and anxious, but I am here to help. Immediately after an arrest, call my office. We can discuss the
DUI defenses available to you, and I can help you avoid the many
DUI mistakes I have seen people make time and again.
Whether you have been accused of an out-of-state DUI, an
underage DUI, a commercial driver's license
(CDL) DUI, or were involved in a
DUI with injury, I have the experience and ability necessary to effectively fight for you in court and at your DHSMV hearing in order to avoid the notoriously strict
Florida DUI penalties.
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, and Collier and cities such as Miami, Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Aventura, and 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.
