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.
