If you get caught driving with a blood alcohol level above .08 percent, that is considered driving while intoxicated or under the influence. DUI/DWI charges are serious and can affect your life for years afterwards. For those struggling with a drunk driving charge, our Florida criminal defense attorney can assist you through your next best steps.
If you were involved in an accident while you were intoxicated, you will be arrested and then charged with a DUI and possible further consequences or charges as well. A Florida criminal defense attorney from Nicole Alvarez P.A., Attorney at Law can help you understand the process you will now be going through to ensure you receive fair consequences for your actions, including possible community service, paying lower fines, or a lesser jail sentence.
Drunk driving charges are considered a misdemeanor in most states, which is punishable by up to a year in jail and fines. Community service may also be required as a consequence for your charges. If you have an extremely high blood content level or multiple drunk driving charges on your record, then the consequences may be more severe or become a felony charge rather than a misdemeanor.
These cases can be complex and frustrating to handle on your own with little or no legal experience. A trusted and experienced attorney can help you understand the actions you need to take in order to have a fair case. You and your family can have peace of mind in knowing that your attorney will help you to have fair consequences. If you or a loved one have been charged with a DUI or DWI and are in need of legal representation or assistance, contact Nicole Alvarez, P.A., Attorney at Law.
