How Can You Find a Hillsborough County DUI Attorney?

What Should I Do if I’m Charged With DUI in Hillsborough
After a DUI arrest in Florida, you have 10 days to request a hearing to avoid an automatic suspension of your driver’s license. You also have to decide how to plead to the charges you face.
The options available to you for responding to charges will vary based on many factors including when and how police stopped you, what evidence was obtained against you, and whether you have a criminal past. You could:
- Try to get the judge to throw out evidence if your rights were violated, which could lead to charges being dropped.
- Try to enter a pretrial diversion program, or attempt to negotiate a plea to reduce the charges against you or to get a lesser penalty.
- Go to court to plead not guilty and try to make it so a prosecutor can’t prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt.
Many DUI defendants don’t know which option is best. At Katz & Phillips, P.A., our attorneys are available any time to help you request your hearing, fight for your license, and make decisions on a plea deal or defense strategy. For example, we have a good idea of how to challenge arrests made at DUI checkpoints in Hillsborough County.
