Most people would prefer to think of a DUI as just an enhanced traffic ticket. IT IS NOT!
DUI is a criminal violation and the government will prosecute you the same as any other crime. For most people, this is the one and only time they will be arrested. It is a new and extremely terrifying experience. This will be the first time most people will ever see the inside of a jail.
Getting out of the car and performing field sobriety tests on video is humiliating. You could be arrested for refusing to take a breath test (try our blood alcohol calculator to estimate your BAC for free), spend a night in jail, have your car towed and lose your driver's license. The far-reaching consequences may impact your finances, employment and personal life.
If you have been charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in Daytona Beach, DeLand, or anywhere in Volusia County, it is important to hire a lawyer as soon as possible. You may lose your license and drive privileges automatically. The DeLand DUI defense attorneys at Delgado & Romanik know that time is of the essence if you want to keep your license and protect your reputation and freedom. Our attorneys are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No matter what time of day or night, you will be able to speak with a lawyer who can answer your questions.
Even if you are found not guilty of the DUI charge you could still lose your license. From the moment of your DUI arrest, you only have 10 days to protect your driver's license in a DUI administrative hearing. We will aggressively represent you in this process — something the public defender's office or court-appointed attorney is unable to help you with.
The DUI lawyers at our firm have extensive experience handling the enhanced charges that may accompany the general category of DUI, such as excess DUI or felony DUI. We also represent the interests of repeat offenders and provide them with the aggressive defense needed in these serious situations.
Our attorneys are innovative in developing defense strategies and meet regularly to discuss our cases, leaving no aspect of your case unconsidered. We understand the technology and the equipment used by arresting officers and work with former law enforcement officer experts in chemical testing procedures.
Speaking with an experienced DUI defense attorney immediately can improve your chance at a successful defense. Contact our firm today so that we can begin working aggressively on your drunk driving defense.
