While every case is unique and past results do not guarantee any future result, our firm is proud of our track record in defending DUI charges. We looked over the Volusia County Clerk of Court (and other Clerks’ websites) to compile publicly available data about our most recent three hundred (300) or so DUI cases. What we learned was pretty exciting.
Out of 325 DUI cases, 292 were reduced from a DUI to a less serious offense or had their charges dismissed—that means 90% of our DUI cases were reduced or dismissed!
Of those 292 cases:
Of our 325 DUI cases, 31 went to trial and 74% were found not guilty at trial.
Oftentimes when it is not possible to get a DUI charge dropped, our lawyers are able to get it reduced to reckless driving, or “wet reckless.” Reckless driving in Florida will add 4 points to your license and may carry a few other ramifications, but they are minor compared to the consequences of a DUI conviction.
Most DUI cases are resolved before trial, but a not guilty trial verdict is the best possible outcome for those that do go to trial. When someone is found not guilty of DUI, it means their case is closed and they will not face the mandatory fines, jail time, or other collateral consequences of a DUI conviction.
When an adjudication of guilt is withheld, it prevents a person from being formally branded a convicted criminal. When a person receives a withhold of adjudication of guilt in Florida, they can legally deny having been convicted for the crime, although it can still appear on background checks from employers unless they are able to have their criminal record sealed. Additionally, the withhold of adjudication will prevent them from triggering the numerous collateral consequences of a DUI conviction.
