Do I really need a lawyer for a DUI?

Even for a first offense, a conviction for DUI can result in substantial fines, the loss of your driver’s license and incarceration. To possibly avoid a DUI conviction and the mandatory sanctions required by Florida law, it is important to consult an experienced criminal defense attorneys to review your case. Do not risk having a DUI conviction on your record when you might have a legal defense.
