First Time Offense

Tampa First Time DUI Offender Lawyers

After an arrest, a person is at risk of facing a lifetime of consequences. In Florida, law enforcement agencies take DUI offenses seriously, even first offenses. If a person is caught driving while impaired due to alcohol or drug use, they can face the following:

  • Serious and heavy fines
  • Loss of driver’s license
  • Jail time
  • Criminal record

An experienced lawyer can fight your charges before you face any of these consequences. For best results, it is important to seek legal representation immediately after an arrest.

What are Pretrial Diversion Programs?

Pretrial Diversion programs are often referred to as first time offender programs, which can protect a person from facing serious legal consequences, fines, and charges. When a person completes one of these programs, after an arrest, a judge may reduce or drop a person’s charges. However, it is important to contact an attorney who is familiar with these types of programs because it can be difficult to enter these types of programs.

In addition, a skilled lawyer can determine the following:

  • Which programs will be most beneficial depending on your charges at the time of arrest
  • Whether it is best that you opt out of programs altogether
  • Whether it is beneficial for you to seek an acquittal instead of entering a diversion program
