Understanding Out of State DUI Cases in FL

Being charged with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a serious crime in any state. Just because you don’t live in Florida does not mean that you will face less severe penalties or be given lenience during criminal proceedings or driver’s license hearings. In fact, you face serious short- and long-term penalties that can greatly jeopardize your future.

These penalties may include:

  • Large fines
  • Probation
  • Community service

In addition, even terms of imprisonment that can increase in severity when aggravating circumstances are involved.

Legal Defense for Out-Of-State DUI

Whatever your charge may be, it is important to understand that having a seasoned Florida defense attorney on your side is crucial to handling a case in Broward County or any other surrounding area of South Florida. Our attorneys can discuss the nature of your case to determine available defense strategies, which may range from having charges dropped or reduced, pursuing alternative options, and transferring probation and other penalties to your home state. We also work diligently to help you avoid the burdens and costs associated with traveling to Florida for court appearances, as we can appear on your behalf and may be able to arrange a plea in absentia.

In addition to handling criminal proceedings, our attorneys also provide representation to clients charged with DUI during matters involving their driver’s license. These matters are handled separately from criminal cases, and any repercussions you receive in Florida – including suspensions or revocations – may impact you in your home state. This is why it becomes essential to get the immediate help of a lawyer, as Florida has a 10-day limit for requesting an administrative hearing following a DUI arrest before an automatic license suspension in imposed.
