McCreary DUI defense Fort Myers

DUI

DUI’s can be one of the most difficult areas of criminal law. The majority of people do not fully comprehend the laws and their rights pertaining to driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

There are two separate courses to a  DUI case:

(1) Criminal: Defending the criminal charges in court and

(2) Civil: Protecting your driving privileges in an administrative hearing.

These proceedings are completely separate; you can win your court case but have your license suspended, or vice versa. You need knowledgeable representation for both issues. The penalties for drunk driving may include can include:

  • Jail
  • License Suspension
  • High Fines and
  • An Ignition Interlock on your vehicle
  • Issues regarding your criminal record on employment or education

We thoroughly examine the probable cause affidavit for the stop of your vehicle, the accuracy of the field sobriety tests, examination of the breathalyzer sample and the machine itself, and the video tape of the field sobriety test if applicable.
