If you are under investigation, have been arrested, or have been formally charged with DUI (driving under the influence) in St. Lucie County, protect your future by contacting The Law Offices of David Golden, P.A. today. In 2015, Florida Law Enforcement arrested almost 47,000 people for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol. These agencies use a variety of methods to stop and arrest suspected drunk drivers such as DUI checkpoints, roadside sobriety tests, breathalyzers, and video evidence. Even with these tests, law enforcement makes mistakes, and when they do, you shouldn’t pay the price.
At The Law Offices of David Golden, P.A., we are committed to helping those who’ve been arrested for driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. We believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and you have a right to fight back against the charges you face. Even if you had alcohol in your system at the time of your arrest, police are required to follow procedures and protocols, and if they don’t, your case could be thrown out. In many cases, breathalyzers aren’t properly calibrated, and officers don’t receive adequate training to spot an intoxicated driver from roadside tests alone. To take control of your future and start your defense, contact the St. Lucie DUI lawyers today by calling 772-336-4357 and schedule a free consultation.
Why Do I Need an Attorney?
A common misconception among individuals charged with a DUI is that they have no options in fighting the charges. A failed breathalyzer test, video and audio showing slurred speech, or testimony from an officer claiming he or she smelled alcohol are not always sufficient evidence to warrant a conviction. An experienced and skilled DUI attorney has the skills and extensive legal knowledge to review every detail of your case and craft a convincing defense. They can poke holes in the officer’s story and cast doubt on the details of the arrest so you can move past this unfortunate event and get back to your life.
