Criminal defense is an area of law that requires hard work and dedication
as well as years of experience to understand Florida's state-specific
laws and regulations. At LeavenLaw, it is our goal to protect those individuals
who have been accused of a criminal offense. After all, it is your right
as an American citizen to have a skilled
defense lawyer to protect your rights. Through evaluating evidence and forensics, interviewing
witnesses and gathering information, our dedicated attorneys can help
to find any instances where your rights have been violated and get your
case dismissed or charges lessened as a result.
In the state of Florida, it is against the law to consume a certain amount
of alcohol and get behind the wheel of a vehicle. If you have been pulled
over and arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs,
including prescription medication, you will need the help of a criminal
defense attorney as soon as possible. Driving under the influence charges
are very serious and very difficult to defend; however, it is not impossible.
DUI charges are defensible with help from an experienced lawyer. After a person
is arrested for DUI, an attorney must investigate the original police
stop, the testing methods used, including the field sobriety test and
any blood tests, and the arrest itself. If an officer acted unlawfully
or broke protocol during this time, the evidence may not be strong enough
for a conviction.
