STAGES OF A DUI CASE IN ESCAMBIA COUNTY & SANTA ROSA COUNTY, FL
After your arrest for DUI, your criminal defense lawyer can usually waive your appearance at many, if not all of the pre-trial court dates saving you the stress and inconvenience of going to court. Stages of the DUI case include:
The formal review hearing to fight the administrative suspension of your driver's license by the DMV which usually occurs within 40 days of your arrest; the arraignment; the disposition or status hearings (often called the pre-trial conference); evidenciary hearings on a motion to suppress evidence or dismiss the DUI charge; pre-trial conferences; and the bench trial or jury trial.
Avoiding the Expenses for a DUI Conviction
There are possible expensive DUI costs and fees that could result from not fighting the case aggressively. It's important that you seek professional legal assistance.
Why You Should Fight the DUI Charges
Many people assume that if they were arrested then they will be convicted of DUI.We take a scholarly approach to filing and litigating motions to suppress evidence and motions to dismiss the criminal charges. The pre-trial motions ask the judge to throw out certain evidence against you or even dismiss the charges completely.
Indirect or Collateral Consequences of a DUI Arrest or Conviction
After a DUI arrest, certain indirect or collateral consequences occur. The consequences are particular harsh for individuals in certain professions and those who require special state or federal certification.
Protecting Your Driver's License - The 10 Day Rule
After the arrest you only have ten (10) days to demand a formal review hearing to contest the administrative suspension of your driver's license. By requesting the formal review hearing we can help you obtain a 42 day driving permit while we fight the suspension (assuming your driver's license was valid at the time of your arrest).
