A DUI Lawyer Is Vital for Complex Cases

Help from a DUI lawyer with the Law Office of David J. Kurland in Largo, Florida, can be essential to keeping your license in a driving under the influence (DUI) case. In the State of Florida, you can lose your license if caught driving a motor vehicle, boat, or even a bicycle while under the influence. A legal case can be a complex, hyper-technical matter, especially if you are on your 2nd, 3rd, or 4th DUI or someone has been injured or killed as a result of your driving. You may even get:

• Jail Time
• Fines
• Community Service
• Alcohol/Drug Evaluation
• Required Counseling

Process Of a D.U.I Case

When you appear to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs while driving, and, or you register a breath alcohol reading of .08% on testing equipment, a police officer can take your license from you at the scene. If you are arrested, your license is delivered to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Later, you can apply to the DHSMV to have your license returned or to receive a limited Business Purpose License. This allows for essential driving only, no social driving. If you are found to be guilty or plead guilty in the DUI case, this license can be taken away by the judge, too.
