If you’ve been arrested in connection with a driving under the influence allegation, we’ll get to work immediately to determine if proper law enforcement procedure was followed. In most cases, legal intoxication is defined as a blood alcohol concentration of at least .08 percent, but effective defenses may exist even if your breathalyzer reading exceeds that level. We will also investigate the circumstances leading to your vehicle stop and arrest to see if officers exceeded their authority.
We can also help if you were charged with possession and need a Bartow drug crimes attorney.
Leaving the scene of an accident with an injury is a felony under Florida law; and a conviction could land you in prison. The penalty is even more severe if the collision resulted in a fatality. Depending on the facts, you could be charged with either a felony or misdemeanor for fleeing to elude. But just because you’re charged, doesn’t mean you’re guilty. We’ll look into the facts and search for a way to show what happened. Whether you decide to plea bargain or go to trial, we’ll work to develop and present the case in a truthful and persuasive manner.
