How soon should I call a lawyer after I have been arrested for DUI in Florida?

You should call a DUI attorney after you’ve been arrested in Florida pretty much immediately upon release. The sooner the attorney  can get involved, the sooner they can conduct their own discovery.

For a prime example, if the field sobriety exercises were recorded at a gas station the sooner you get the attorney in they can  subpoena any kind of necessary video that may not be around two weeks or three weeks after you’ve been arrested.

Also it’s important to contact them immediately because we have two cases in any kind of DUI case; a criminal case and the DMV case. And you only have ten days from the date you were arrested to file and request your formal review hearing and contest the suspension of your license. And if you wait too long and you miss that opportunity then it’s automatically suspended. That’s why you want to  make contact with a DUI attorney as soon as possible after release.
