DMV Hearings
After a DUI arrest, your driver's license will be confiscated and suspended unless you request a DMV hearing within 10 days. These hearings allow you to argue in your defense before an administrative judge and obtain a hardship license if your suspension affects your ability to travel to and from work.

DUI & Drugs
Motorists can be arrested under charges of DUI for being intoxicated by illegal drugs, prescription medications, and even over-the-counter (OTC) medications. Speak with a DUI defense attorney right away to learn what defense strategies can be used to fight your charges.

DUI Involving an Accident
Charges of DUI become even more serious when the intoxicated motorist causes an accident. Property damage and minor injuries can result in additional penalties, but DUI with injury or a fatality is the most serious of all. Our firm can provide the aggressive defense you need when facing such serious charges.

DUI Penalties
The penalties for a DUI conviction vary depending on whether it is a first or multiple DUI, a felony DUI, or if there is injury or a fatality involved. Our lawyers know the penalties that you are facing for your particular charges and will fight relentlessly to prevent you from facing a wrongful conviction.

DUI with Injury
When a DUI accident involves serious bodily injury, the consequences are much more severe. You could face a felony DUI and time in jail or prison, so do not hesitate to retain a DUI lawyer from our firm to fight skillfully for a dismissal or reduction of your charges.

Felony DUI
Third DUI charges, DUI with injury, and DUI manslaughter can each be charged as a felony instead of a misdemeanor. This means that you could be sentenced to prison and face thousands more dollars in fines. Our attorneys have obtained countless reductions and case dismissals for even the most serious DUI charges.

Don't think for a second that you have no hope for a successful defense. At Parks & Braxton, PA, we know what to look for when it comes to evidence and witnesses. We will also investigate your case thoroughly to uncover any police misconduct our faulty breath / blood tests.

Leaving the Scene
Charged with leaving the scene of an accident? Our firm will fight to prove that you fulfilled your lawful duty of rendering aid and exchanging information; that the accident did not involve damage or injury; or that you were not involved in the accident at all.

Multiple DUI
The more times a person is convicted with DUI, the worse the penalties become during sentencing. The fines, jail time, and license suspension times can all increase. Also, a third or subsequent DUI is a felony that could land you in state prison instead of the county jail. Our firm is experienced and successful in defending any such case.

Out-of-State DUI
Florida is a member of the Driver's License Compact, which means that Florida residents who are arrested for DUI in another state will still suffer from Florida's license suspension laws when they return to Florida. Our lawyers know the laws surrounding out-of-state DUIs and can skillfully fight your DUI and license suspension.

Sobriety Checkpoints
Law enforcement must follow strict rules and regulations when conduction a sobriety checkpoint. Otherwise, your DUI arrest could be unlawful. Consult a DUI attorney from our firm right away. We can investigate your arrest to determine if your police stop was or was not lawful.
