Protect Your License & Your Reputation

When you are arrested for DUI, you may be at risk of losing your license. Oftentimes, this issue is dealt with at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles offices instead of in a criminal court. We can help you to protect your license by arguing for you at the license hearing.

Other penalties you may face include:

  • Up to a year in jail -- even for a first offense -- or mandatory jail on a second offense
  • Up to 50 hours of court-ordered community service
  • Possible DUI school attendance and follow-up treatment
  • Possible mandatory Alcoholics Anonymous attendance
  • Possible reporting for probation for up to a year
  • Vehicle impoundment for at least 10 days
  • Possible ignition interlock device installation
  • A DUI listed on your criminal record
  • Up to a year in jail for refusing breath test
  • Deportation if you are not a United States citizen

Our firm will take the most effective approach to argue for your innocence or negotiate a satisfactory plea bargain with the prosecution to help reduce your penalties. If you want more information about DUI defense, call Colón & McNelis, PA today! We can sit down with you and discuss your case in detail.
