Criminal Defense Attorney Broward Palm Beach Florida. You may have heard the quote in the television series entitled *THE FIRST 48 that “For Homicide Detectives, the clock starts ticking the moment they are called. Their chances of solving a murder are cut in half if they don’t get a lead within the first 48 hours.” Likewise, for a person who is arrested or under investigation for a criminal offense, time is also of the essence. The clock starts ticking the moment you have been arrested or become the subject of a criminal investigation. You need to protect your constitutional rights at these critical early stages as well as throughout the entire judicial process.
When an attorney intervenes at these early stages, they can:
shield you against unwanted police interrogation
act to preserve evidence that may be critical in your case
secure a reasonable bond or conditions of pre-trial release
The Law Offices of Evan M. Kleiman, P.A. will help you find solutions if you have been charged with a DUI in Florida. The penalties for DUI are numerous and complex. The likely punishment if found guilty depends on if you have any prior DUI offenses and have been convicted of any DUIs in the past, and if so, the number thereof. Penalties also depend on the driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC) and whether a minor was in the car.
In addition to jail time, if you are convicted of DUI in Florida, you will be placed on probation, assessed a fine, have your license suspended, amongst other penalties, as well as have a criminal record.
