First Time Offender DUI Results

A Umansky Law Firm attorney recently had a couple of DUI cases with a few difficult sets of facts. The first one was a case where a client was a 20-year-old student who blew two breath test levels over a .3, which is over 3 times the legal limit in the state of Florida. Our attorney went to court to file a pre-trial motion to suppress in this case. She was able to convince the prosecutor to give the client a reckless driving charge because the DUI in Orlando was her first offense. Our attorney was also able to get her a “withhold of adjudication” on that reckless driving charge. Once she’s done with probation and all of her conditions, she should be able to seal her case. This was ultimately a favorable resolution for the client who blew that high of a breath test level.

Our attorney represented a first time DUI offender whom had some prior driving on suspended license cases. This client came before the same judge and the same prosecutor and we filed the same type of motions to suppress. In that case, our attorney was able to speak with the law enforcement officer when the client got there and convince the officer that the client was going to lose his job if he had pleaded to a DUI because he was going to lose his driver’s license. Because of that, our attorney was able to convince the prosecutor, as well as the law enforcement officer, to give the client a reckless driving charge.

Experienced Legal Counsel in Orlando

Although you may be facing serious criminal charges, a lawyer can more easily negotiate with the prosecution and arresting officers when you are a first-time offender. Even the judge presiding over the case may settle on a less severe sentence. The reason being is that due to it being your first criminal offense it gives the judge a sense of your character and shows that you are not someone who seeks out trouble. However, you must still acquire strong legal representation who can protect your best interests.
