Look no further than the Law Office of Michael Mirer, P.A. Our team is

An individual can be arrested for DUI if they are found driving with a
blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of .08%-regardless of whether
or not they were actually "drunk." Florida law states that if
you drive a vehicle, you have automatically given consent to submit to
a chemical test that determines the amount of alcohol in your blood.
Refusal to submit to a chemical test results in automatic license suspension.
First time offenders will face a 1-year license suspension, while 2nd
and 3rd-time offenders may be subject to an 18 month license suspension.
Get Effective Representation at Your DHSMV Hearing
If you are arrested for DUI, you will have 10 days to contact the Florida
Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV) to request an
administrative hearing. At this hearing, you will have the opportunity
to defend against a license suspension and revocation, which is why it
is important to act fast and contact our firm immediately after being
arrested. If you retain our services,
we can schedule your DHSMV hearing for you and represent you at the hearing.
Oftentimes, individuals believe there is nothing they can do to challenge
their DUI, and they simply accept their penalties. However, there are
many methods that can be used to counter a DUI charge.
DUI charges are commonly dismissed due to the following reasons:
- The law enforcement officer did not have reasonable cause to pull the individual
over in the first place.
- The law enforcement officer did not properly administer the chemical or
field sobriety test.
- The blood sample was handled improperly.
- Surrounding conditions made the results of a sobriety test faulty. This
may include poor weather conditions, bumpy, slippery, or cracked roads,
insufficient lighting, and more.
Any of these circumstances could serve as grounds to dismiss the validity
of your test results, leaving the prosecution without evidence to convict you.
