By looking through our site, you can see recent victories that are just that – recent. We aren't afraid to add dates because our sites are up-to-date with the work we are doing in the courtroom every day. No matter whether you have had a child arrested for a DUI with injury, if you are facing an
out of state DUI while vacationing in Tampa or even if you are facing a
felony charge for something like
DUI manslaughter or a drunk driving accident that caused serious bodily injury to another, you can trust in our firm to help. We are well-versed in
criminal defense relating to drunk driving and will be able to assist.
DUI penalties are different in Florida than they are in any other state. For example, upon first conviction of drunk driving, you may be fined $500 to $1,000 and not less than $1,000 if the BAC was higher than .15 percent or there was a minor present in the vehicle at the time of the arrest. If the officer that pulled you over asked you to perform a
breathalyzer test and you refused, then your license was likely automatically suspended.
If you took the breath test and your blood alcohol content (BAC) was at or above the legal limit, then this is the evidence that will be used against you at the DMV hearing as well as the criminal hearing. Our firm will fight to try to get your driving privileged restored, or at least a hardship/provisional license. You may have been arrested by means of a traffic stop or because of a
sobriety checkpoint. Attempting to avoid a sobriety checkpoint may constitute a charge of
leaving the scene.
What you need during this time is an attorney who has a comprehensive understanding of the Florida statutes as well as experience in the Florida courts. Parks & Braxton is prepared to do just that. Our extensive DUI knowledge is sought after by many not only in Tampa, but throughout the entire state of Florida. Whether your charge is serious, such as vehicular manslaughter, or you just want to keep a DUI off of your driving record for insurance reasons, our firm can help you protect your rights and work toward the positive case results you need.
Parks & Braxton: Defending the Accused in Hillsborough County, FL
Many people are not aware of the benefits they could receive when working with a DUI attorney. Representing yourself will likely be difficult, because you cannot gain access to certain evidence in order to challenge it. This could include breathalyzer testing as well as police video. Also, it is best to retain the help not only of an attorney who knows how to defend the accused, but an attorney who knows DUI laws as well as DHSMV operations in Florida.
At our firm, we recognize that being arrested typically doesn't happen when it's convenient – and you will often need a Tampa DUI attorney when it is outside normal office hours. For this reason, we have made ourselves
available 24/7, meaning that you can call at any time on any day and you will be able to speak with a partner at our firm. Put your future in the hands of experienced DUI attorneys.
