Florida DUI Law Firm Explains Your Rights

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) charges, commonly known as “drunk driving,” in Florida can have serious consequences that can last a lifetime. That's why it's critical that you seek immediate legal advice if you have been charged with DUI in Clay County and Northeast Florida. You are facing:

  • Hundreds or thousands of dollars in fines
  • The loss of your driver's license
  • Imprisonment

Experienced Florida DUI attorney Mark Sieron of Aguilar & Sieron, P.A., understands what you're going through.

Understanding Your DUI Charge

Florida's DUI rules and regulations can be extremely complicated, especially if you have never been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. That's why we created this section on our website devoted to an overview of Florida's DUI laws, tests and more.

In this section, you will also find information about mistakes drivers make when stopped for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol, mistakes police make and DUI myths. But no matter what the circumstances are surrounding your DUI case, it's important to speak with us as soon as possible.

How A Drunk Driving Lawyer Can Help You

Strict deadlines exist when it comes to DUI charges in Florida. If you do not take legal action in certain cases within a certain amount of time, you could potentially forfeit your right to obtain a temporary driver's license or contest the administrative suspension of your driver's license for driving with an unlawful blood alcohol (DUBAL) or refusing to take the breathalyzer test.

Drunk driving cases can be extremely complicated. As an example, arresting officers must follow constitutional procedures, breathalyzers must be maintained properly, and breathalyzer technicians must follow very specific procedures.  People charged with DUI in Florida who try to tackle their case on their own often encounter significant legal obstacles. Even if you know you were not legally impaired, that doesn't guarantee that your charges will be dismissed.

You have too much at stake to try to tackle your DUI charge on your own. Make sure you take your case seriously right from the start. Make sure you contact our law firm and schedule an appointment right now. You can reach us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
