Florida Traffic Violations Attorney
When you need to defend against a traffic ticket or DUI/DWI charge, your attorney should be someone who cares about your case and you, who can walk you through the entire process, without charging you too much.
I opened The Law Office of Kristina Duhaney to give my Fort Lauderdale, Florida, clients quality representation at competitive prices.
If you are found to have between .08 and .2 Blood-alcohol-level (BAC) in Florida, you can face the following penalties:
- Fines: Between $250 and $500
- Imprisonment: Up to six months
- License Revocation: Six months to one year
Second Offense Within Five Years
- Fines: Between $500 and $1,000
- Imprisonment: Between 10 days and nine months
- License revocation: Five years
Third Offense Within 10 Years of a Prior Conviction
- Fines: Between $1,000 and $2,500
- Imprisonment: Between 30 days and one year
- License revocation: 10 years
Fourth Offense — Felony
The fourth drunk driving offense is considered a felony and includes:
- Fines: Up to $5,000
- Imprisonment: Five years of prison, maximum
- License revocation: Permanent
In most cases, the penalties are higher if you are found to have a BAC over .2.
The DUI Process
I start with an in-depth interview, investigation, and consultation regarding the merits of your case. I will negotiate to reduce charges and get you into a diversion program to minimize the long-term damage. My practice is to never accept a plea at the first court date, but to negotiate for the best deal possible. If the prosecutor does not have a good case, I will fight for you throughout the trial and appeal process.
