South Florida DUI Defense Attorney Lawrence B. Wolk & Associates Can Help Defend Your Rights Following an Arrest for Drunk Driving or DUI

Being arrested in Florida for DUI - the operating of a motorized vehicle under the influence of alcohol, drugs or chemical substances - presents a serious legal situation that can cost you money, time and - worse of all - your freedom. Contacting the Law Firm of Lawrence B. Wolk & Associates with proven success in defending DUI charges for hundreds of South Florida drivers is vital to help you defend your rights, your driving privileges and your liberty.

Florida has among the toughest DUI laws and penalties in the nation. Speeding, erratic driving or a myriad of other activities can result in a police officer stopping you on the suspicion of driving under the influence. Authorities can ask you to perform a number of field sobriety tests - the results of which are not scientific and can have questionable results. You may be asked to breathe into a breathalyzer, which can provide scientific results, when the machine is properly maintained and used accurately. If your blood alcohol content is determined to be more than .08 percent, you will be arrested, spend time in jail, have your vehicle impounded and face the humiliation and inconvenience that comes with a drunk driving arrest. The punishments are harsh because driving under the influence can have very serious consequences, including diminished reflexes and impaired judgment that can affect other drivers - injuring or even killing them. Repeated arrests and convictions can result in even more serious consequences including the permanent loss of your driver's license, significant jail time and huge monetary fines.

However, just because you present with bloodshot eyes or a disoriented appearance at the time of your arrest, does not necessarily mean you're guilty of a crime. Many of the factors that indicate a driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol are subject to the police officer's evaluation, which may or may not correctly identify the state of the driver.

If you've been arrested in Broward, Dade or Palm Beach counties, don't face these charges alone. Contact DUI defense lawyer Lawrence B. Wolk without delay. Lawrence B. Wolk & Associates have more than 20 years experience with the defense of DUI and other traffic violation charges. Wolk and his fellow lawyers have helped hundreds of drivers maintain their freedom and minimize penalties by questioning the accuracy of field sobriety testing, the maintenance of breathalyzer equipment and through other proven defense strategies. In some cases, arrests are made when the driver hasn't consumed a drop of alcohol because of health conditions that affect the outcomes of testing done on the side of a road. You only have 10 days following your arrest to contest the suspension of your drivers' license, so time is of the essence. The sooner Lawrence B. Wolk & Associates begin working for you, the quicker your driving privileges may be reinstated and the stronger your chances of winning your case may be.
