Boating Under the Influence (BUI) Lawyer in Fort Lauderdale
Boating under the influence of alcohol or drugs is just as serious an offense as driving a car under the influence and can result in a DUI on your record. A boating under the influence conviction has the same effect as a DUI conviction. The defense of a boating under the influence charge requires a lawyer who understands the differences between a vehicle DUI and a boating DUI. There are factors unique to a boating DUI. For example, the roadside sobriety tests are different for boaters and there are environmental factors to consider that can mimic the effects of someone under the influence.

- Minimum of six months of probation
- Fines and court costs of at least $500 and as much as thousands of dollars depending on your unique circumstances
- DUI school and any recommended follow-up treatment
- Community service
- Driver's license suspension (imposed by the court rather than the DMV)
