The State of Florida will seek to suspend your driver’s license following an arrest for a DUI.

For immediate help, call Glenn R. Roderman at 954-764-6800

Driving a vehicle while intoxicated by alcohol or impaired by drugs (DUI/DWI) is a serious matter in Florida. A person is guilty of DUI if s/he drives or is in actual physical control of a motor vehicle and is under the influence of alcoholic beverages or any chemical or controlled substance to the extent that his/her mental faculties are impaired or when his/her blood alcohol level (BAC) is above the legal limit for the state (0.08 for Florida).

The penalties for being convicted of DUI depend on prior criminal and traffic records, the level of alcohol in blood, and the specific facts of the case at hand. If you are convicted, you can face harsh penalties, including:

  • Driver’s license suspension
  • Probation
  • Impounded vehicle
  • Fines
  • Increased insurance rates
  • Criminal conviction on your permanent record
  • Required alcohol treatment programs and counseling

There are many defenses to a DUI charge. It is possible that your breath or blood sample was tested improperly by the lab or the police violated the law when stopping you. These are just some of the many examples for grounds to challenge the charges against you.

Commercial licenses

Commercial drivers are held to a higher level of accountability in cases of driving and traffic offenses. The goal is to minimize and overcome the negative consequences for DUI/DWI charges with a professional license, commercial driver’s license, and any potential employment loss. Commercial and professional drivers have their livelihood at stake with a DUI charge which is why it is vital to have a strong DUI defense attorney.

As a skilled Florida DUI defense lawyer, I’ll examine your case carefully and look for all potential defenses tot he charge. I’ss aggressively advocate for you at each step of the way and help you get back on the road as soon as possible.

I first met Glenn Roderman while I was a young prosecutor. Glenn was one of the most professional and effective defense attorneys I have ever encountered. Over the years I had many cases against Glenn. I always appreciated his honesty and his zealous defense of his clients. Over the years I learned so much from Glenn and he is truly a... lawyers-lawyer. I have not practiced criminal law in many years so when I am asked for a referral to a criminal lawyer , I use every opportunity to refer clients to Glenn.read more
