Driving Under The Influence

DUI is an acronym for ‘Driving Under the Influence.’ Also referred to as DWI (Driving While Intoxicated/Impaired), the term has been expanded to refer to operating a vehicle while under the influence of any substance – from alcohol and drugs to cold remedies and many prescription medications.

Florida law states that a BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) test result of .08 or higher is automatically considered a DUI offense for those of legal drinking age. A ‘no-tolerance’ stand is taken with drivers under the legal drinking age of 21, which essentially means that any alcohol detected in the driver’s system likely will result in a DUI arrest.

A DUI conviction puts a permanent mark on both your driving and criminal records. If you are arrested for DUI in Central Florida, your first major step is to secure strong legal representation as soon as possible. Zachary E. Stoumbos, P.A., has the most up-to-date knowledge of DUI laws in and around Central Florida and has a keen eye for any discrepancies in challenging police evidence and arrest procedures as well as the results from potentially faulty breathalyzer and blood tests.

In the event of a DUI arrest, you have only 10 days from the day of your arrest to request a formal review hearing with the Department of Motor Vehicles. This hearing is critical, and the assistance of an experienced attorney could make the difference between having your driver’s license suspension lifted or sustained.

The evidence in a DUI arrest case is usually data retrieved from a breathalyzer or blood test and the testimony from the officer who administered the roadside sobriety tests. More often, the accused has refused to submit to the breathalyzer test, thus making the state’s case substantially more difficult to prove.

Zachary E. Stoumbos has the experience and knowledge necessary to challenge the evidence that serves as the foundation for the charges brought against the driver. When you retain Attorney Zachary E. Stoumbos you can expect personal and aggressive attention to your case. With over 20 years of criminal defense trial experience, his services will be invaluable and the only defense you deserve.
