Accused of DUI? Call Attorney Albanese today! The consultation is completely FREE!

A charge of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is a very serious matter that should not be taken lightly. Time is of the essence in securing your defense, and the fight to protect your rights and privileges must begin immediately. The consequences of a DUI arrest are long-term and can significantly impact your driving privileges and your freedom.

The Law and Your Rights

You Are Presumed Innocent!

At the time of your arrest, you probably heard a lot of talk from the officer about the heal-to-toe task, or the finger-to-nose task, or some other field sobriety exercise that the officer had you perform. Or, perhaps you were not asked to do the exercises at all. Maybe, instead, you were just asked to give a blood or breath sample. Regardless of what occurred, you are likely scared and confused about what led to your arrest.

A DUI charge is never simple, and often quite complex in terms of legal analysis. The case may not be cut and dry, and the charge may not be easy to prove. The State of Florida has the burden to prove all the elements of the charge against you, beyond and to the exclusion of every reasonable doubt. You, as the accused, have no burden to prove anything. You are presumed innocent! It is important to know your rights, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of the case against you.
