First Time DUI Offenders

Experienced Fort Myers DUI Defense Lawyers Fighting for You

Florida courts are tough when it comes to criminal charges, and DUI is no exception. Even if an individual is facing charges for a first offense with no previous criminal record, they should not automatically assume that the court will give them a break. Any criminal offense can lead to severe punishments, including time in jail, driver’s license suspension, and expensive fines. That is why if you are being charged with a first time DUI offense, it is urgent that you work with a Fort Myers DUI lawyer at Parks & Braxton, PA. We can help you protect your freedom and your driving privileges by counseling you on your best legal defense options.


Consultations with Parks & Braxton, PA are always free of charge. You don’t have to face your charges alone – contact us today!


What is a Pretrial Diversion Program?

As a first time offender, you may be able to avoid traditional prosecution and consequences by completing a Pretrial Diversion (PTD) program. Designed to prevent future crimes, successful completion could result in a dismissal of charges. When you choose to work with our firm, we can help you determine if you are eligible and help you get into one of these programs. Because they are often not easy to get into, contact us as soon as possible.

Why Do I Need to Hire a DUI Defense Attorney?

Many first time DUI offenders assume they don’t need a lawyer to deal with their charges, but the truth is that judges are not always sympathetic in these cases. With so much at stake, it can be risky to handle DUI charges without representation. Not only do you stand to lose your freedom, but you may also lose your driving privileges, which can hinder your ability to attend work or school and cause an enormous disruption to your life. When you call us immediately after an arrest, you may increase your chances of saving your driver’s license and staying out of jail.

Our Fort Myers DUI attorneys can help you put together a strong defense strategy for your case by:

  • Advising you to avoid a program, if best for your case
  • Determining which program may best suit your case, if any
  • Seeking an acquittal in court, if this is the most beneficial option

Criminal charges can be frightening and overwhelming, especially for a first offense. We at Parks & Braxton, PA want you to know that you don’t have to go through this time alone. Allow us to put our decades of criminal defense experience to work for you.
