WEST PALM BEACH CRIMINAL ATTORNEY

Any person who accepts driving privileges in the state of Florida is deemed to have consented to a breath test when an officer has probable cause for DUI. The consequence for refusing to submit to a breath test is the suspension of your license for six (6) months. However, refusing to take the breath test a second time can result in a license suspension of eighteen (18) months and the criminal charge of Refusal to Submit to Chemical or Physical Test. Commonly known among law enforcement as “Second Refusal,” a conviction for this charge has serious penalties, including the possibility of a jail sentence of one year.

On the other hand, submitting to a breath test can often be just as harmful as refusing. The breath test typically consists of blowing air into an Intoxilyzer (formerly called a Breathalyzer) that measures your breath alcohol level. If your alcohol level is .08 or above, your license will likely be suspended regardless of the fact that you cooperated with law enforcement by giving a sample of your breath.

Due to the seriousness and complexity of a Second Refusal charge, it is critical to receive the advice of an attorney experienced in DUI law.

Reckless driving is a traffic crime with potentially serious consequences. It is considered a misdemeanor in Florida and can result in a fine, probation or even a jail sentence. Moreover, a conviction for Reckless Driving is damaging to your driving record and can cause your insurance rates to increase drastically. Our attorneys with experience in criminal traffic cases can fight for dismissal of charges by seeking diversionary programs for the client or questioning the soundness of the officer’s arrest.

While many believe that driving without a valid license is merely a traffic infraction, the offense is considered a second degree misdemeanor punishable by up to sixty (60) days in jail. For this reason, a charge of No Valid Driver’s License or Expired Driver’s License should not be taken lightly. Our dedicated attorneys can help guide you in determining your eligibility for a Florida driver’s license and reduce the penalties for the charge. Additionally, our attorneys will investigate law enforcement’s justification for stopping your motor vehicle. If an officer pulls you over without cause, the crime should be dismissed.

A CASE LIKE YOURS

A suspended, cancelled or revoked license can result from a variety of issues, such as an arrest or conviction for DUI, failure to pay a traffic ticket, failure to appear in court for a traffic offense, or failure to pay child support. DWLS can range from a second degree misdemeanor to a third degree felony and can result in jail time after repeated convictions. Three offenses for Driving While License Cancelled, Suspended or Revoked within five years will result in the Department of Motor Vehicles designating you as a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO). HTO status triggers a five-year driver license suspension and subjects you to significant incarceration. Our attorneys can ascertain the reasons for your suspension and show you the proper steps to reinstate your license.
