Has a Dunedin dui arrest left you overwhelmed and confused? Let a qualified and compassionate Dunedin dui attorney help guide the way. At the law office of Finebloom, Haenel & Higgins, our attorneys have over 30 years combined experience in dui defense.
When hiring a dui attorney Dunedin residents have many options. At Finebloom, Haenel & Higgns we understand these choices. We strive to put ourselves above the rest in both courtroom practice and client satisfaction. Our Dunedin dui lawyers go to great lengths to obtain the best result possible for your unique situation.
When you hire a dui lawyer Dunedin officials are put on notice that you intend to challenge your arrest. The dui attorney in Dunedin that you hire should be willing to look at the following issues in your case:
- The initial stop
- The investigation
- The arrest
- The blood or breath results
- The circumstances surrounding a roadblock or checkpoint that served as the basis for your stop or arrest
If the dui lawyer in Dunedin you hire is not willing to challenge any or all of these circumstances in your case, you could lose out on a valuable defense. If procedure was not followed for one or all of these circumstances that led to your arrest, it is possible that your case could be dismissed!
But not every case is able to be dismissed. The dui attorney in Dunedin that you hire should be willing to represent you in all administrative hearings relating to your license and also be willing to take the case all the way to trial. In the event you choose not to go to trial, the dui attorney you hire should be willing to try to negotiate the best deal for you. The best deal you can get for a first time dui is as follows:
- 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.
This is the minimum penalty. It is also possible for a judge to order up to 6 months in the county jail for a first offense (9 months if you blew over a .15).
