St. Petersburg / Clearwater DUI Defense Lawyers

The Chart is a Start…
But No Substitute for an Experienced Lawyer’s Advice

Given frequent changes to this area of the law by the Florida Legislature and the fact that every Pinellas County DUI case is different, readers are urged not to rely solely on graphs or charts. Our office can discuss with you whether your case may be a good candidate for a reduction to a lesser offense. Such an outcome could have the effect of side-stepping Florida’s mandatory minimum DUI consequences and punishments under Florida Statute 316.193(2), 316.193(3), and 316.193(4). For those clients with possible prior DUI convictions, we can counsel you on whether the prosecutor will discover your prior DUI conviction and what impact it could have on your pending charge. Call our office for a free consultation at (727) 578-0303 to learn where you stand and what your options are.
