Avoid the Harsh Consequences of a DUI Conviction

The state of Florida places harsh penalties on DUI. People arrested for driving under the influence face consequences including community service, fines, imprisonment and placement of an ignition interlock device on their vehicle. A DUI conviction may also mean increased car insurance costs and driver’s license suspension.

The best way to avoid these consequences is to work with an experienced DUI defense attorney. At The Law Offices of Michael R. Herron, P.A., our lawyers are former DUI prosecutors who have handled thousands of cases. They understand both sides of the criminal justice system — the state’s perspective and your criminal defense perspective. Using this knowledge to your advantage, they are dedicated to helping you achieve the best possible results. We can often get the charge reduced to reckless driving.

When our Tampa, Florida, law firm handles your DUI case, we take everything into account:

  • Did the police officer have sufficient reason for the traffic stop?
  • Did the officer have sufficient reason to think you were drinking?
  • Were roadside tests administered correctly?
  • Was the breath test accurate?
  • Were your rights violated in any way?

Get Your Driver’s License Back

If you have had your license taken away after a drunk driving arrest, acting quickly is critical. You have only 10 days from the date you were arrested to obtain a temporary driver’s license permit. If you do not file the correct paperwork within that time, your driver’s license is automatically suspended.

The lawyers at The Law Offices of Michael R. Herron, P.A., can help you obtain your temporary driver’s license. We also offer representation at formal review hearings, which gives you the opportunity to win back your full driver’s license privileges.
