Fort Lauderdale DUI Attorney
DUI Defense Lawyer Serving Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Either you or someone you love has been arrested for DUI or you wouldn’t be on this website. A Florida DUI arrest is a very serious matter and can have far-reaching consequences to your finances, your freedom and your future. I am Fort Lauderdale DUI lawyer Lloyd H. Golburgh, and I have been defending people charged with all kinds of DUIs since 1996.
Because of intense lobbying by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), the Florida Legislature has passed laws with very heavy penalties for those convicted of DUI in Florida. The State Attorney’s Office in your county will use all of its resources to obtain a conviction against you, no matter who you are or what your situation may be.
I can help you with the following areas of drunk driving-related matters: DUI,
female DUI and
DUI manslaughter. I can also assist you in regard to your
DHSMV hearing, which is your opportunity to challenge the administrative suspension of your driver's license in conjunction with your DUI arrest and allegedly failed/refused breath or blood test. I am committed to using my skill as a trial attorney to protect your interests inside and outside of the criminal courtroom in order to seek the best possible result to your case, whatever the circumstances may be.
Consequences of a Drunk Driving Conviction
I believe it to be very important that you have a seasoned and knowledgeable Fort Lauderdale DUI defense lawyer on your side to defend you against your DUI charge. A conviction will result in what’s called “‘mandatory adjudication.” This means a permanent criminal record. A conviction can also carry court costs, fines, community service, vehicle immobilization, an ignition interlock device, DUI school, and most important, the loss of your driving privileges and even jail time.
At our law firm, we know what you are going through now and will continue to go through during this difficult process. We know how to defend against a Florida DUI charge, whether it is a first offense with no property damage and no personal injury, or whether it be a second, third, or subsequent offenses with property damage, personal injury, or even death. We can help. A first-offense DUI conviction can bring the following penalties:
- Permanent criminal record
- Up to a year of reporting probation
- A minimum of 6 months driver’s license suspension
- A level 1, 12-hour DUI school and any recommended follow-up alcohol treatment or counseling
- A minimum of 50 hours of community service
- A minimum 10-day vehicle immobilization or impoundment
- Hundreds of dollars in court costs and fines
- Possible ignition interlock device
- Up to 6 months of possible jail time
- Increased insurance costs or loss of coverage altogether
Your case could greatly benefit from the experience and legal knowledge of a seasoned Fort Lauderdale DUI attorney. You don’t have to face the harsh punishments and social stigma of having a DUI charge on your record.
Even if you have no prior criminal record, you could still spend time in jail. Do not assume that because you have never been arrested or charged with a crime, you will receive leniency or a lighter sentence.
