Now that the summer is almost here, Fort Lauderdale is going to be a party city. From spring break to Memorial Day, people have barbeques and all sorts of other parties. Many of these are full of alcoholic offerings.
While there isn’t anything wrong with enjoying alcohol when you are out with your friends, you have to ensure that you don’t make the life-altering decision to drive home drunk. If you do choose to drive home after having a few drinks, you might end up facing charges. We can help you evaluate the ways you can combat those charges.
Criminal charges for drunk driving are a sure way to put a damper on your festivities, so you shouldn’t let this happen. If you do have to drive home and end up being arrested, you need to work on protecting your future. We can help you find out your options for protecting your future.
Your future can be impacted in more ways than you might realize. A drunk driving conviction can mean that you can’t drive or that you have restrictions associated with your driving privileges. This can impact your ability to go grocery shopping, drive to work or handle other daily activities.
The options that you have for your defense depend on what happened. You might find that you are a bit limited, but this doesn’t mean that your defense is pointless. If you know that a conviction is likely, we can explore options that will attempt to minimize the consequences you will face.
One thing that is very important in your case is that you pay close attention to everything that is happening when you are pulled over and during your arrest. Some of this information might prove useful in your defense, so be sure that we know about what happened.
