Read Florida DUI Attorneys Lawyers John Musca's Answers About Florida DUI Laws
Can I fight my Florida DUI?
Simply speaking, yes. I can review every aspect of the case, from the reason that you were stopped, to the validity of the field sobriety tests, to the maintenance of the breathalyzer machine, to the validity of the results. I will conduct a thorough review of all the facts and laws regarding your Florida DUI case.
Also, I will discuss the case with the prosecutor and judge, pointing out your background, your job, and the need for you to keep your license.
What is illegal under Florida DUI laws?
In Florida, the charge of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs (DUI) alleges that your Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) was .08% or greater when operating or attempting to operate a vehicle or that you operated or attempted to operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, drugs or any combination of alcohol and drugs to a degree that rendered you incapable of safely doing so. Because Florida DUI law provides for conviction under either "leg" of this split standard, thorough and aggressive defense of a DUI charge requires the skills of a qualified Florida DUI defense lawyer. Florida DUI cases are procedurally consistent with any other criminal charge in that the prosecution bears the burden of proving the charge "beyond a reasonable doubt." However, because of an increased public intolerance of drinking and driving, defending against a Florida DUI charge has become increasingly more complicated, and the penalties for conviction have become much more serious. In order to defend against a Florida DUI case, your attorney must be ready and able to attack the Government's evidence of intoxication. There are a number of avenues that an experienced, thorough Florida DUI defense attorney can pursue in order to defend the client. Countless DUI cases have been won by contesting the constitutionality of any stops, searches and seizures; challenging the precision and proficiency with which the arresting officer conducted the field sobriety tests; challenging the training and experience of the individuals who conducted any chemical tests as well as the test results themselves; and by testing the credibility and reliability of the statements of any witnesses.
Since the test result indicates my BAC was .08 or more, am I going to be found guilty?
Not necessarily. There are many tactics and strategies to use when defending Florida DUI cases. In certain circumstances we can successfully challenge the procedures used when administering the test and the accuracy of the test result.
What should I look for when hiring a Florida DUI Attorney or Lawyer?
Conviction of a drunk driving charge can have serious consequences affecting your relationships and your ability to earn a living. Effective defense requires thorough knowledge of the issues related to drunk driving charges, which differ among the Florida communities surrounding the Florida Area. At the law firm of John Musca Florida DUI Attorneys Lawyers we limit our practice to Florida DUI/criminal defense, and we have the knowledge and the experience needed to effectively defend you against DUI charges.
What makes John Musca qualified to handle my Florida DUI Arrest?
Musca Law's team of criminal defense attorneys has over 50 years of combined experience. We will investigate the constitutionality of the stop, the procedures used in obtaining evidence, the constitutionality of any statements you gave, and the accuracy of any tests administered.
We have the experience and understanding to represent you if you have been charged with an alcohol related offense. We are equipped to handle your criminal hearing as well as the formal administrative review hearing regarding the retention of your driving privileges.
Florida Drunk Driving (DWI / DUI) charges are serious, and can have a lasting impact on you and your livelihood. In planning a drunk driving defense strategy, we carefully examine all of the evidence to determine if the stop was proper, and if the officer had probable cause to investigate a suspected alcohol-related driving offense. We may challenge the stop itself, or we may file motions to suppress evidence related to field sobriety tests and blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tests, such as those involving PBTs and the Intoxilyzer. We also handle the administrative proceedings required to protect your driving privileges.
Our experience has taught us to consider the following:
- The initial traffic stop - Did the officer have a valid reason to stop the suspect?
- The DUI investigation - Did the officer have valid suspicion of elevated blood alcohol content?
- The field sobriety tests - Did the officer administer the field sobriety tests correctly?
- The chemical test at the station - Did the officer follow required protocol for administration of the Intoxilyzer?
If the answer to any one of these questions is "no" there may be a strong basis to file a motion to suppress the evidence in your case or to successfully challenge the sufficiency of the evidence at trial. We look at everything in order to obtain the best possible outcome for our clients. Not every driver arrested for Florida DUI is guilty of the offense.
In defending against DUI charges, experience counts. I prepare every case I handle as though it were going to trial. I believe that is the only way to truly know the detailed facts of each case. If a better outcome is available by means of plea negotiations, I have always believed that the prosecutor is much more likely to make a favorable offer in a case that he or she knows the Defense is prepared to try if necessary.
If you have been charged with an alcohol related driving offense, you need our skilled legal representation immediately to protect your future. We urge you to contact our Florida DUI defense lawyer today.
