Our Florida Felony DUI Defense Practice

We handle all matters related to felony DUI charges, preparing and filing all the necessary documentation, and acting as your advocate in all hearings or proceedings. We will fully investigate the facts and circumstances of your case, looking first to see whether law enforcement officers had probable cause to make the traffic stop. We will also review police reports, and question witnesses to verify that you were properly advised of your rights before making any statements to police.

We will carefully examine the evidence to establish whether field sobriety and blood alcohol tests were correctly administered. We will look at the history of the arresting officer to determine whether he or she has a history of making things up just to get an arrest. If there are any violations of your constitutional rights, we will seek the exclusion of evidence and/or the dismissal of charges, if appropriate.
