What to Expect Your Fight Is Our Fight

What Should I Expect During a DUI Case?

Different situations and behaviors can result in a DUI arrest in Miami, but the circumstances surrounding the arrest are often the same. Arrestees usually experience the following:

  • perform a battery of roadside or nautical sobriety exercises
  • asked pointed and embarrassing questions
  • take a breathalyzer test

After that, they are handcuffed and taken to jail. The roadside exercises are designed for failure and police will often exaggerate your performance deficiencies to bolster their arrest. Florida law requires a minimum eight hour nap in jail before you can be released. In many larger counties, like Miami-Dade County, DUI arrestees often spend close to 24 hours in jail before release.

Potential Penalties for a DUI Arrest

The embarrassment beyond the initial DUI arrest is often the hardest part of the ordeal. Many people think about how a DUI will affect their family, their job, their driving privileges, and their future. These are all legitimate concerns. The ramifications of a DUI arrest and criminal case can be far-reaching, and can have a dramatic impact on a person's life. The stigma of a DUI arrest or conviction, increased insurance premiums, fines, classes and counseling are just a few of the collateral consequences of a DUI arrest.

How much does a DUI in Miami cost?

After being charged for allegedly drunk driving, one of the biggest concerns on your mind is likely how much it will cost you. The attorney fees for a DUI in Miami will be different from attorney to attorney, and depend on a variety of factors, including:

  • Experience of the attorney
  • Time spent on the case
  • Factors involved in the case

It is important to get quality representation and to understand that you get what you pay for.
