First Steps for a DUI

If you’re accused of a DUI in Florida, you have several separate issues to address. One of the first is your DHSMV hearing, an appearance with the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Your ability to continue legally driving while you defend against the charges against you depends on this hearing. Florida gives you only a small window of time to schedule it – 10 days. If you miss the deadline, Florida will immediately suspend your driver’s license – and you’ll still have to defend yourself against the DUI charge.

Your Orlando DUI lawyer knows this and won’t let this important deadline pass. We’ll schedule your hearing and appear with you when the time comes. In Florida, this is a twofold process. The first time you appear, a DHSMV worker will review your case. This individual will then schedule a second, more formal proceeding when they decide whether to take your driver’s license from you or allow you to continue driving. This process is too important and too complicated for you to attempt handling on your own.

The attorneys at Katz & Phillips have represented drivers at innumerable DHSMV hearings. Many less-experienced attorneys or individuals who try to represent themselves can easily make a mistake at these proceedings, and mistakes can result in dire consequences. Don’t risk losing your license. Put your trust in an experienced attorney who knows the DHSMV ropes and can protect your rights so you can continue driving.

Call the attorneys at Katz & Phillips immediately so we can act within the required 10-day period.
