DUI - Driving Under the Influence
New Port Richey DUI Lawyers Mount a Successful Challenge to Florida Driving Under the Influence Charges
A DUI conviction has a lifelong impact on a person’s life. Every legal avenue must be explored by the DUI defense attorney to avoid paying the maximum consequences. Experienced Florida DUI attorneys consider all possible legal avenues of mounting a defensive case strategy in these cases.
Although a DUI defense attorney should be challenging the state’s case against you at every front, there are some key defense points. The main points to consider challenging a Florida DUI include:
- Requesting a formal hearing — Formal hearings after a DUI must be petitioned for right away after a DUI charge. Winning the hearing does not dismiss your case, but a victory allows you to keep your driver’s license as the case is pending and gives an idea of the strength of the state’s case.
- The traffic stop — Being able to challenge your traffic stop can make all other evidence subsequently attained against you inadmissible in your case.
- Field sobriety and blood alcohol content (BAC) tests — Our skilled DUI defense attorneys question the admissibility of your field sobriety and BAC tests. These tests are often unreliable and a forensic accounting of maintenance records sometimes uncovers accuracy issues with such tests.
- Procedural mistakes or errors of law — Law enforcement makes mistakes. Cases are often dismissed when their errors are uncovered through evidentiary discovery.

The first battle is to maintain your driver’s license while your case is pending by winning a formal hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles.
