Now it is time to deal with your pending Florida DUI. Whether you were arrested in Dade, Broward, or Palm Beach County, understand that the State of Florida will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. As your Florida DUI attorney, it is my responsibility to ensure that every angle of your Broward, Dade, or Palm Beach Driving Under the Influence DUI is explored in order to build the best DUI defense possible. 

In the state of Florida, driving under the influence (DUI) is legally defined as the criminal act of driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or both.  It is also the criminal act of driving a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher.  For first time offenders, DUI charges are usually classified as misdemeanors.  However, charges can be enhanced if the person caused bodily harm to another person or extensive property damage.  For multiple DUI offenders, charges are automatically enhanced, and could be classified as felonies.
