Have you been arrested by the Pinellas County Sheriff or Belleair Police and charged with DUI? Are you looking for assertive and uncompromising representation? At Finebloom, Haenel & Higgins our Belleair dui lawyers are available to assist you.

There are many ways that skilled dui attorneys in Belleair challenge a dui arrest. One of the ways is to challenge the stop itself. Did the officer or deputy have a good reason to pull you over or initiate a conversation with you? If the officer did have a reason to stop you, was there a basis to start a dui investigation? Many times there is not. Even if the stop and investigation were performed according to the standards set forth in the law, it may be possible for the Belleair dui attorney you hire to challenge the actual arrest or breath test result. If the challenge is successful it could result in a reduction in your charges or even a dismissal! But you will not know if these options are available to you if you don’t speak with a dui lawyer in Belleair with knowledge and experience in dui defense!

When you hire a dui lawyer Belleair law enforcement and Belleair prosecutors are put on notice that you plan to fight your dui case. When they know an attorney is involved the outcome is often more favorable for the individual. The most favorable outcome for a first time dui is:

  • 12 months probation
  • 50 public service hours
  • Dui School
  • Drug Evaluation
  • 10 day impoundment of the vehicle you were driving
  • An additional six month license suspension and
  • A $500 fine
  • If you blew over a .15 then the fine is increased to $1000
  • If you blew over a .15 you will also be required to install an ignition interlock on your vehicle for at least 6 months.

There is also the possibility of six months jail, nine months if you blew over a .15. But when you have competent representation it is less likely that this worst case scenario will happen to you!
