Why should I consult with an attorney before pleading guilty?

It’s important in a DUI case not to just plea your case just to resolve it. You need to really sit down and speak with an experienced DUI attorney to look at your consequences, because just pleading your case out is going to carry lifelong consequences.

Because in Florida DUI carries certain minimum mandatory sanctions – one of those being adjudication of guilt – if you just plea it to a DUI you are going to have a criminal record for the rest of your life, and this is going to be something that you can’t expunge.

Also another consequence is is by pleading out to a DUI if you get one down the road that prior plea will be used against you to enhance your DUI. It’s very important to sit down and talk to an attorney because they can also go over possible defenses you may have to the charge and explore all your options.
