Being charged with a DUI can be quite upsetting – even life-changing. Florida laws don’t look kindly upon those charged with drinking and driving, and the consequences you’re facing can be severe. Attorney Michael Kessler can help protect your rights!
Understanding the 10-Day Rule
Florida is among many states with a 10-day rule. You have just 10 days to respond or your driver’s license will be automatically suspended. One option you can take is to request an administrative hearing to determine whether the officer had probable cause to arrest you. You can also waive your right to a review hearing and get a Business Purpose Only license.
Your best option is to connect with Attorney Michael Kessler, who will act quickly and aggressively to help protect your right to drive. Attorney Kessler can build a strong defense that will help you challenge the prosecutor’s claims and take other steps that are necessary to ensure the best possible outcome.
The Possible Penalties for a DUI Conviction
Even if this is only your first DUI offense, you could face fines of up to $500, a license suspension of up to a year, a year on probation, six months in jail, and you could have your vehicle immobilized. Repeat offenders face far higher fines, longer license suspensions, and the potential for years in jail. You may not be able to drive to work or even to pick up your kids from school.

Do I Really Need An Attorney?
You do have the right to represent yourself in a DUI case, but it’s really not a good idea. For starters the government will have one working against you. If you’ve been charged with a DUI, it’s important to understand that the field is ridiculously complex, and there are harsh consequences at every turn. You’ll find complicated procedures, forensic science and “police science”, evidence rules, and even sentencing issues.
Attorney Kessler will review your case for problems, file motions to have evidence suppressed if police didn’t handle things right from the start, and may even uncover issues like poorly calibrated breath testing machinery. All of these things mean you get a defense that may help to establish your innocence in the case, allowing you to move forward without the consequences of this arrest.
